In the last summer
When I didn't want to go
Wings and wheels
Nerves of steel
Fast one's favorite shows

I finally got over
The last thing I recall
Was "thanks for flying the friendly skies of pills and alcohol"
Over water off into the great unknown
I kissed the ground you walked on
Take me home

In the last summer
When I didn't want to go
Wings and wheels
Nerves of steel
Fast one's favorite shows

I finally got over
The last thing I recall
Was "thanks for flying the friendly skies of pills and alcohol"
Over water off into the great unknown
I kissed the ground you walked on
Take me home

Over water off into the great unknown
I kissed the ground you walked on
Take me home
I kissed the ground you walked on
I kissed the ground you walked on
I kissed the ground you walked on
Take me home

    General CommentThis is exciting stuff! For those who don't know, this song is a recently released demo from back when the band was still trying to find someone to produce On a Wire. There were five brand-new songs found in this batch of demos, and they're pretty great.

    I've started a repository for Get Up Kids bootlegs, demos, and rare tracks/video (OK-ed by Matt Pryor himself) over at getupkidsarchive.blogspot.com. This is there, as well as plenty of other stuff. Please check it out, and send me an email if you have something I don't! The site is kept alive by people like you letting us share it with fans all over the world, and you will receive credit. Thanks!
