"Same Dress New Day" as written by and Mark Pirro Bryan Wakeland....
Take off your coat
Your silver is tarnished
Lady in darkness
The cat is old and still
Keep all your makeup
Packed on your head
Invite all the demons
The truck stops in the bed

You can't rely on a stranger to love you
You can't rely on a friend who's dead
You can't deny all the people who love you
You can't deny when their love is dead
You know that you will love you still
You can't deny the love that you must

Brush off your anger
Go fix your hair
Tell all the people
The brain is always dead

The sky is the limit
When the ocean is hiding
Keep all your secrets
Locked inside

You can't rely on a stranger to love you
You can't rely on a friend who's dead
You can't deny all the people who love you
You can't deny when their love is dead
You know that you will love you still
You can't deny the love that you must feel

    General CommentTo this day, I find this song to be SO haunting and intense (in an understated, yet manic way). The instrumental is so unique, with the odd, ghost-sounding synthesizer above the interesting guitar plucks. I remember when a school friend of mine was killed in a car accident, and I used to listen to this song; particularly when Tim DeLaughter sings "you can't rely on a friend who's dead". I always found that to be such a tragically familar line, but oddly therapeutic.
