"Kate Is Great" as written by Greggory A. Attonito, Shalendar S. Khichi, Bryan T. Kienlen and Peter William Steinkopf....
Used to have home
With a room and bed
A porch and a driveway
With a big garage
But I traded it in
I kept some faith
And laid my head down every night
And it seems so far away
Remember me now 'cause things
Always change
Five long years have gone
I've done some time
Sleeping where I fall
I know I'll never be the same
I learned somethings
About the places I saw
I learned something about myself
I guess it came the hard way
Now I know what counts
I've got one prayer
It's in your confidence
I know all the places
I don't want to be everyone's
Gone there's no one just me
Remember me now 'cause things
Always change
Five long years have gone
I've done some time
Sleeping where I fall
I know I'll never be the same
Remember me next time I go away
For the first time I want to stay
I can count one hand here today
The only thing that matters to me
Anyway and it seems so far away
Remember me now 'cause things
Always change
Five long years have gone
I've done some time
Sleeping where I fall
I know I'll never be the same

    General CommentIf you dont understand you best just go back to listening to your STD and leave the punk scene completly. this song is the complete history and meaning of punk and if you dont understand. please save us the trouble of having you in our way and forget about being "punk".

    General Commentheh, amusing stuff from the peanut gallery. i think its really funny that you look down up him/her b/c they listen to STD (sweet ass band, along w/ b-souls). you people are so caught up on the "image" of your music, that you can't stand it when other people like the same stuff too. you like the music, so why shouldn't someone else, regardless of what they listen to? i dunno... get off your high horse and help them out... btw, anti-flag130... its write, not right. if you're going to make fun of someone, at least do it intelligently. gah!

    General Commentthis is a good song. by a good band. saves the day is also a good band. there a lot of good 'emo' bands. it doesnt matter what stuff you listen to. you guys critisize other people for not understanding the song. yet you dont offer any explanation. what i think its about leaving home and living out on your own and how that it can change who you are. i hope that i stay who i am after i move out of my house. i however dont understand how the song title fits in with the song. why is kate great? and what does it have to do with living on your own?

    General Commenti love this song...... and im pretty sure its called k8 is great because the souls used to work at a fouton place in SoHo in NYC and whenever they came back from tour k8 would let them work there and sleep there.... im pretty sure thats the story behind it... and that is why she is GREAT!

    General CommentI used to be a big alcoholic and pass out where I fell and do stupid shit. But I joined the army. Ironicly for 5 years but only time will tell how much I change when I come back.

    General Commentawesome song. some corrections though. it's not

    "i learned 2 things about the places i saw
    i learned 2 things aobut myself "

    it's

    "i learned some things about the places i saw
    i learned some things about myself"

    and

    it's not "i can count on one thing here today"

    it's

    "i can count on one hand here today"
