"El Paso" as written by and Mark O'connell Edward Reyes....
Cradle the sound, caller speak through your teeth
I was up and away
I've never known what to think
What I wanted to know, where did God sway
And if the silence was gold, gold, gold
When you got your way

You'll never give what you get, no
You'll never give what you get, no
You'll never give what you get, no
You'll never give what you get

My eyes got sore, oh, those perverts are sick
I have the truth on my tongue
Hadn't know until when
What I wanted to know, whether God was away
'Cause I was there as you, you play
And you, you fools, you look all the same

You'll never give what you get, no
You'll never give what you get, no
You'll never give what you get, no
You'll never give what you get, no
You'll never get what you

(You all look the same)
You'll never give what you get
You'll never give what you get
(You all look the same)
You'll never get what you want
You'll never want what you get
(You all look the same)
Just do your best to forget
Just do your best to forget
(You all look the same)

You got your way, you got away
When God, he was away
You got your way, you got away
When God, he was away
You got your way, you got away
When God, he was away
You got your way, you got away
When God, he was away

You'll never give what you get, no
You'll never give what you get, no
You'll never give what you get, no
You'll never give what you get, no
You'll never give what you get, no
You'll never give what you get, no
Just do your best to forget
Just do your best to forget
Do your best to forget

    General Commentseriously.... you know i was skeptical about the reunion.... i thought it was a way to get tbs "back on top" for whatever label they are on now, because all the stupid little fan boys cant get over the fact that people and bands change and grow....

    i thought it was a way to up the sales, to market to the lowest denominator of the musical society.... but this song has changed my mind = )

    General Commentthis song is a straight up "shut the fuck up" to the music scene, and online bloggers and trolls who have nothing better to do then rant and bitch and post negative shit on the internet.

    "youll never get what you want, youll never want what you get"

    people who were so skeptical about the reunion and think TBS is "shit" without certain members

    its called progression, and it is a very good thing

    General CommentThis song is fucking awesome. Seriously, it's very good. It shows the evolution TBS has reached, it's *their* sound but ten times better.
    Now, Call me in the morning is another pretty jewel, their best soft song yet. It's also an evolved form of earlier works (like My blue heaven but impossibly better)
    I love this line up, not because fan bias, but because the amazing sound they've reached.
