a bright light
a new position
a new conviction
a new battleground
a gold confession, please just listen
(passes through)
well, please just listen
(passes through-- it never happened)

one will bind us all.

    General CommentI tried my best to distinguish the lyrics... let me know if you hear anything different. :)


    It’s all in the water colder
    those walls caving in
    you loved this sad october
    you know you said it now
    you know you said it to me
    it’s all a carol
    but no trace of it
    down there after midnight
    it’s just coming down
    it’s just closing down

    I waited for you, I sent you away
    how could it hurt someone who formed the mess?
    I don’t really know, I cheated our fate

    When the day rolls up, and i turned away
    da da da da da da da da da da (x2)

    we’ll fall again soon
    curled up inside
    in a photograph those simple looks, innocent, ain’t it all, innocent

    you can have that simple ________
    with that _______ that’ll fit
    one down, but i note ya
    i listened to you, i __________
    inside it’s so alone
    headed for the west again
    and on the road in arizona
    this is it, this is it, this is it

    one will drive us home, one will drive
    one will drive us home, one will drive it

    we’re already late
    a little bit later
    a little bit later
    a little forgot
    a little bit later
    a little bit later (past is through)
    a little bit later (past is through)
    never have I
    wondered why you’re gone
    wondered why you’re gone

    General CommentSHANNONELAINE, I worked with your interpretation and here's what I've got:

    It’s all in the water colder
    bed and wall caving in
    you loved this sad october
    you know you said it now
    you know you said it to me
    it’s all a carol
    but no trace of it
    down there after midnight
    it’s just coming down
    it’s just closing in

    I don't really know how to send you away
    how could it hurt someone who formed the mess?
    I don’t really know, I cheated our fate

    when the tables turn and i turn away
    da da da da da da da da da da (x2)

    we’ll fall again soon
    curled up inside
    in a photograph those simple looks, innocent, ain’t it all, innocent

    faded eyes in the corner
    with that coat that never fit
    one down, but i note ya
    i listened to you, i listened to shit
    inside it’s so alone
    headed for the west again
    and on the road in arizona
    this is it, this is it, this is it

    one will bind us all (x2)

    a brighter day
    a new position
    a new condition
    a new battle ground
    a cold concussion
    please just listen (passes through)
    please just listen (passes through, it never happened)

    one will bind us all (x2)

    General Commenti hear "i don't really know how i cheated our fate."
    then "the past is through, it never happened."

    General CommentOh yeah, it's definitely "The past is through; it never happened." I need to revise these as I went off the really awful quality myspace demo the band put up about 6 months before the album came out.
