"Block After Block" as written by and Kimberly Ann Schifino Matthew Wesley Johnson....
Now this is all me, now this is all me
Watch out for late phone calls, we face them concrete walls
Go to far, live too long, time's too short, right and wrong
Block after block, block after block
Rolled down gates look the same, different trips, different trains

Hey friends, break in the back door
And turn it up while the lights are out
Eyes closed and shouting right now

Lights turn on and dark turns outside, blindside dream, - ding - you're next in line.
It's plain now this is all me, now this is all me.
Lights turn on and dark turns outside, blindside dream, - ding - you're next in line.
It's plain now this is all me, now this is all me.

Eat when you're hungry and sleep when you're slipping like
Tired dogs, rested paws, today we show our flaws
Block after block, block after block
If one way, now unwise, what was left now is right

Hey friends, we'll jump the turnstiles
And cut it down while the lights are out
Eyes closed and shouting right now

Lights turn on and dark turns outside, blindside dream, - ding - you're next in line.
It's plain now this is all me, now this is all me.
Lights turn on and dark turns outside, blindside dream, - ding - you're next in line.
It's plain now this is all me, now this is all me.

I think it takes a pile of bricks for us to make a home
And I'm not sure that I hear mountains grow from just one note
Block after block, block after block
Everything happened, every step I've took and street I've walked

Lights turn on and dark turns outside, blindside dream, - ding - you're next in line.
It's plain now this is all me, now this is all me.
Lights turn on and dark turns outside, blindside dream, - ding - you're next in line.
It's plain now this is all me, now this is all me.

    Lyric CorrectionCorrect lyrics that came with the CD

    Watch out for late phone calls
    Wheat paste and concrete walls

    Go too far, live too long
    Time's too short, right and wrong

    Block after block,
    Block after block

    Roll down gates, look the same
    Different trips, different trains

    Hey friends break in the back door
    And turn it up while the lights are out
    Eyes closed and shouting right now

    Lights turn on and dark turns up
    Side by side dream bigger
    Next in line it's late
    Now this is all me
    Now this is all me

    Eat when you're hungry and
    Sleep when you're slipping like

    Tired dogs rest their paws
    Today we show our flaws

    Block after block,
    Block after block

    It's one way now on Wythe
    What was left, now is right

    Hey friends we'll jump the turnstiles
    And cut it down while the lights are out
    Eyes closed and shouting right now

    Lights turn on and dark turns up
    Side by side, dream bigger
    Next in line it's late
    Now this is all me
    Now this is all me

    I think it takes a pile of bricks
    For us to make a home
    And I'm not sure but I hear
    Mountains grow from just a stone

    Block after block,
    Block after block

    Everything I've learned
    Every step I took
    And street I walked

    Lights turn on and dark turns up
    Side by side dream bigger
    Next in line it's late
    Now this is all me,
    Now this is all me

    General Commentthey really opened up their new album with an awesome song. it's so catchy, and while it's hard to understand matt, his part sounds so cool. definitely one of my instant favorites, from one of my favorite bands.

    General CommentThis song is just exceptional, my favorite besides Northeast on the new album.
    I think it's a nostalgic look at these past few years and all their accomplishments.
