"Chicago" as written by and Chris Rubey Andy Trick....
Oh
What has exhaustion brought me?
Unvisited, but still too busy to close my eyes
(To close my eyes)

Maybe one day I'll grasp the pattern
Maybe in time this will all be readable
Maybe in time (time)

As if the solitude could bring me any peace
I was greeted with Constance, I found no sleep

These thoughts are nothing but wished away
I can't remember what it is to be content
These thoughts are nothing but wished away
(But wished away)
I can't remember what it is to be content, 'eah

Show me the exit
Let the signals fade
Maybe one day I'll defeat the cycle
Maybe (maybe) in time (in time)
I'll be able to define this

This wretched purgatory (purgatory)

As if the solitude could bring me any peace
I was greeted with Constance, I found no sleep

These thoughts are nothing but wished away
I can't remember what it is to be content
These thoughts are nothing (these thoughts are nothing)
But wished away (but wished away)
I can't remember what it is to be content
This is bound to fail
This is bound to fail

Go ahead

The enemy will not resist, deceived until the end
I hate this persistence, my eyes may never close
I hate this persistence, my eyes may never close

    General Commentpretty sure this is about mike's ex-girlfriend jade. she lives in chicago and they dated for a long time, like 4 or 5 years at least, i think. apparently he's with a different lady now.
