"I Am Trying Very Hard To Be here" as written by and David Paden Marchand Adam A Carson....
Before you came what was your name?
Did you look like me?
No one's from here,
no one my dear, not even the trees.
So change your name,
just keep your face.
We're temporary anyway.

Before you came we played
this game in our masquerade.

Flash, Flash, Car Crash.
We're no fixtures.
Quick, now, quick. Take our picture!

What was your past?
When was the last time
that you recall someone your knew
was someone who asked nothing of you?

So lose your past.
I'm sure you'll find
it's in the way all the time.
Before you're through you're
someone who looks a lot like you.

We can't remember the seasons
We chant in the manmade snow.
We can't recall the feelings
that we cannot show.

    General CommentDavey wrote about being sucked into Hollywood fame much better in Paper Airplanes

    While not much of a track on the album, this will be awesome live with the crowd chants.
