it's your birthday, 1-2-3-4, surprise! step through the door, you'll be alright, all of your friends are there to wish you a goodnight, a goodbye, a "thanks for the good times." or maybe that's just me?
i've been chasing shadows since we left chicago, every dead end says the same fucking thing: never look back, but i'm not for advice i don't understand, so i'll play ignorant until you miss me again.

    General CommentNick says in the background at the very start during the 'it's your birthday' part: "We all know what you've done. Where you've been and whom you've fucked."
