Long nights, hard times. Everything that makes you feel tired.
I think I got to get away from you. Long nights, hard times.
Everything that makes you feel tired.
That's why I got to get away from you.
I've got something to say. You might not like how it sounds.
I don't care. I've got to get out of here.
You look like or your disguise,
you're just a monkey in a monkey suit.
Now you know how I feel. Its just time or it's the wrong time.
You can't deal with me. I can't deal with you.
And now it's justified for both of us.
Just one more thing. Can you tell me something that I haven't heard?
I want to hear how it sounds.
What was that, that you said? You can't think of anything,
well think harder.
Tell me a secret or two. Speak up dear, my hearing's not so good.
I shouldn't call you dear. That's a good one. The best and worst secret you've ever yelled at me.
I've been around long enough.
Life is what happens while we're making plans.
I can't write another life. Our age of miracles is past.

    General CommentYeah so I owned this really cool hat of Miller Beer. That is one of those red mesh hats and in white writeing it says "Miller (with that eagle desighn) Made the American Way" Well I wore it to my secound piebald show and was like two people back center, and after Long Nights their closeing number, I threw that hat to travis who cought it and siad "Now people are thowing shit." he then went to put it on and wear it whail he struck piebalds stuff for the closeing band. I then went to the following nights show and decided to enjoy this one from the back of the crowed away from pushing and idiot crowd surfers. Well I notice when Travis Came on he was wearing my had backwards. After American hearts he went on to say that this was their last number Long Nights, and quote "This hat I am wearing was thrown up to me last night, you have to admit it is cooler then underwear." I am stoke about that story, and will never stop telling it till they break up.

    General Commentthis is probably my new favorite piebald song after getting 'we're the only friends we have'. i think this song is about being around someone who always brings you down and how you have to get away from that. its saying that like you shouldn't be afraid to speak up and be like "dude, i don't like you" and stuff. if its obvious someone's being an asshole and you can't really deal with them either...then you should get away from them. well...that's what i think...kinda. yeah. hehe.

    General CommentPiebald how do I love thee let me count the ways.... ah.
    Life is what happens while we're making plans... great line. I enjoy the muscial transitions in this song... lyrics are actually secondary to me but Piebalds' are the only lyrics in a while that have moved me.

    General CommentThis job could be about quitting a job, but the end basically proves this wrong. I think this song is about a couple who are really annoyed with each other and he finally tells her how he feels.

    General CommentThis is such a sweet song, I love it so much. Near the end where Travis says, "Life is what happens while we're making plans", could this be a reference to the John Lennon song 'Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy' where Lennon sings, "Life is what happens to you
    While you're busy making other plans". I think so!
