"The First Part" as written by Laura Jane Ballance, James August Wilbur, Jonathan Patrick Wurster and Ralph Lee Mccaughan....
So this is the first part
We're drunk and the selfless relentless caresses
How long must the first part last
Before we make our respective messes?

Well all the clocks wound down
Well all the clocks wound down
And all the doors thrown open
One good minute could last me a whole year

One good minute will last me a whole year
Well it's a delicate line
We draw it in pink
We draw it in white

So take your time with it
Yeah take your time
I have remembered these things before
Whispered phrases and emotions

I have remembered these things before
Whispered phrases and emotions
And I know that they will only
I know that they will only haunt me

One good minute could last me a whole year
One good minute will last me a whole year
Well it's a delicate line
We draw it in pink

We draw it in white
So take your time with it
Yeah take your time

    General CommentIs there a better song to be bombing down the highway too. Just a powerhouse of a tune. Saw them play it in Months ago and I was astounded by pounding rythem and Mac's vocals. Top 5 Fav Chunk songs.

    General CommentAlways thought the line "One good minute will last me a whole year" was about being high.
