Mouth clamped tight. My tongue burns with a thousand words. You could be my everything, but I won't even make a peep. In my mind we've lived that dream a hundred times. It was so wonderful, but you don't even know my name. Is this the right place? Could this be the right time? Are we just cheating ourselves by holding back with our everything? If I open up and let you peer inside, I'm afraid you won't like what you find. All these emotions swell like a lake behind a damn built for rejections' sake. In silence, my thoughts are crime. In silence, I'm left behind.

    General Commentyeah, theyre good guys, we went to a show to see them, and they didn't play, so they gave us free shit and gas money to drive to virginia and see them at their next show, but they didnt play again, and we had no money to get back, so maybe they arent so good after all...
