"This Is Nowhere" as written by and Darren Taylor Steven Chen....
We all sit on the curb
And we stare at the rain in our boots
The car, the clouds, the sky
While Ishmael wraps himself in the sheet again
He'll clench the fists and close his eyes
I don't know how many times
I can loan him my cigarettes
When I don't even know if he's alive
Do prophets lie?
It makes me feel less horrified

And my closet's filled with
All these endless accouterments
These shoes, these scars
These shirts, these ties
And these things I say to make myself feel good again
I'll speak, I'll write, I'll laugh, I'll lie
I can't bear to sit here and drink myself sick again
Another night
When everything I know was just a lie
And I don't even know where I'll sleep tonight

I got nothing to do but stare at these walls
And take some time to screw my head on right
We all ended up alone, wasted here at Silver Lake
We'll work, we'll feed, we'll change, we'll try
I can't make any sense of this or you or anything
I'm wide awake, and all our parents lied
It's not alright, and all our words collide
Awake all night

    General CommentThis song to me speaks of uncertainty, especailly with lifes purpose and where you are heading/where you currently are. The part about prophets makes me think that if even they mess up and are not sinless, then it is ok if we do from time to time.

    Silver Lakes is a town/city by Hollywood and is a place with lots of modern architecture and where many indie bands are from and go. A "hip" place. Has a "bohemian" vibe.

    Awesome band btw! Seeing them in two days in Columbus!
