"Young Glass" as written by Timothy John Baker and Adam Hogan....
Long we were searching
These serpentine streets for the signs of a spark
Fucking around in the dark
Then long we were held
In the thrum and the desperate heat of the clubs
Drinking deep from that cup

We'd drink it up

Each step was something
The beat in the blood and the heat in our hands
Of twelve regular men
So when we come down cathedral street
Hollow and beaten, to the room that I rent
I'm going back up again

I'm going up

But while everything is blooming
You know the wilting always waits
To steal away your body, to steal away your brains

Oh man I hate this part,
When the car sails off the bridge
Am I the knuckles white inside? or am I the water rushing in?

Am I rising up?

Silent night, holy night
Take my eyes, take my mind and lay me down!
Oh! sweet winter kiss on these heavy lids!
Sweet winter gift of dreamless sleep, lay me down! draw me out!
No!

Doctor unbandage my eyes
I feel the light and I'm ready to be out in it
Doctor uncover my ears
I hear the chorus weeping, I see the people singing:
Doctor unbandage my eyes
I feel the light and I'm ready to be rising!
Doctor uncover my ears!
I hear the chorus weeping! I see the people singing:

Let the loser up.
Let's get him up.

    Song MeaningI've heard this is inspired by JD Salinger's novel Franny and Zooey, and is directed at the character of Zooey Glass.

    General CommentSorry, that should be Franny Glass that I said, not Zooey. Oops.

    General Commentthese are the correct lyrics...

    from under your sheets out into the hall
    you sleepwalk through the rooms where you grew up
    out through the porch and the old front doors
    carried by words that you learned when you were small
    down the stone steps and into the night
    it's the boulevard and the hum of her hard lights
    and when you open your eyes you're in central park
    carried by the words that you learned when you woke up:

    even though - i thought i was - all alone - i was wrong
    even though - i thought i was - all alone - i am not

    you can hurry home to mama and your house of doors
    get the bolt in the hole and you can close all the windows
    but keeping out the killers and keeping out the creeps
    isn't keeping out the doubt and the disbelief
    as they look for god in them ivory halls
    you can see her on the porch, listening to the radio,
    singing that wanderer's song:

    even though - i thought i was - all alone - i was wrong
    even though - i thought i was - all alone - i am not
    even though - i thought i was - i was wrong - i am not

    and even if - you're scared stiff - you can trust in this - you can trust in this
