"We Are Leaving" as written by and Thomas B. Powers Alisa Xayalith....
Cover up your shaky hands
I hear that you’re doing well
Back again for long this time?
Looks like they put you all through hell

But you seem to be coping fine

Trust me the stress will pass with time

And you’ll be back around again
Yes you’ll be back again

I don’t mean to make you curse
But it could have been much worse
And as far as I can tell
It seems that you’re doing well

Come quick, things worth seeing
Life-sick, we are leaving
Time-framed, changing season
Same-same, we are leaving

And I bet you constantly ask
How did we get here so fast
Cause I have been there once before
And all the dates they made me raw

Wait and weight, it’s all the same
Sinking underneath the waves
Hell it couldn’t be much worse
Than diving in head first

And I don’t mean to make you curse
But it could have been much worse
And as far as I can tell
It seems that you’re doing well

Come quick, things worth seeing

Life-sick, we are leaving

Time-framed, changing season

Same-same, we are leaving

    Song MeaningFrom the band:

    The band had been overseas for some time. We went back home briefly at one point and I remember feeling like I’d gained confidence from all of our experiences on the road, yet I was wary of everyone. ‘We Are Leaving’ isn’t a vindictive song by any means. It’s about being on the receiving end of condescension. – Thom
