"Cameras" as written by and Kimberly Ann Schifino Matthew Wesley Johnson....
Sun's going down let's get together
On the bridge we'll meet up tonight

Black pants, red sweatshirt and brown bags
Above the East River's northern lights

You see what I see
I thought it make believe
Watched the sunrise
On my street

Old cement makes for
A solid place to lay
Bed of light grey
My bed of light grey

While I know it's letters
That can spell
I hear now it's words that can say

I decided to start writing less
And I'm talking more everyday

Sixteen of our friends
A five seat bright red van
Curbside view
Turn off of Grand

Pound my steering wheel
We yell to the windshield
I'm finally home
I'm finally home

No time for cameras
We'll use our eyes instead
No time for cameras
We'll be gone when we're dead
No time for cameras
We'll use our eyes instead
I see flashes of gold

Every single car alarm we hear
We'll steal and throw through their window
My water comes straight from the tap
And those bottles are all just for show

I see that we're made of
More then blood and bones
See we're made of
Sticks and stones

Don't forget to breathe
Need locks for your keys
Don't forget to breathe now
Forget to breathe now

No time for cameras
We'll use our eyes instead
No time for cameras
We'll be gone when we're dead
No time for cameras
We'll use our eyes instead
I see flashes of gold

No time for cameras
We'll use our eyes instead
No time for cameras
We'll be gone when we're dead
No time for cameras
We'll use our eyes instead
I see flashes of gold

No time for cameras
We'll use our eyes instead
No time for cameras
We'll be gone when we're dead
No time for cameras
We'll use our eyes instead
I see flashes of gold

    General CommentI love this song!! I don't think there's anything wrong when an act decides to take a different direction in terms of sound, as long as they still make good music! Can't wait for the new album!!!

    Lyric CorrectionCAMERAS

    sun’s going down let’s get together
    on the bridge we’ll meet up tonight

    black pants red sweatshirt and brown bags
    above the East River’s northern lights
    ––––––––––––––
    you see what I see
    I thought it make believe
    watched the sun rise
    on my street

    old cement makes for
    a solid place to lay
    bed of light grey
    my bed of light grey
    ––––––––––––––
    while I know it’s letters
    that can spell
    I hear now it’s words that can say

    I decided to start writing less
    and I’m talking more everyday
    ––––––––––––––
    sixteen of our friends
    a five seat bright red van

    turn off of grand

    pound my steering wheel
    we yell to the windshield

    I’m finally home

    My Opinionyeah i agree, they were less popular then but songs like No more long years and Silver Tiles were why i started listening
    loved To/From, love the self-titled, grand was alot different.. and now matt's like reallly singing in this
    he's still holding to familiar themes it's just a bit different. definitely a good song to rip a beat from..
