Planted in the sweet spot for the sound
that keeps us sleeping safe 'til dawn
you fit yourself for cracks to slip into
i fit myself for exits and i'm gone

repeat times ten
we're happy again
sinking where you lay

window envelopes and monotone
claim your prize it's overdue
it takes a nerve to claim the intellect
to crane your neck out of a cushioned tomb

repeat times ten
we're happy again
sinking where you lay

fix in position and purchase
submerging insurgents inaudible
permanent grip from the inside
we're the wrong side
fix in position and purchase
submerging insurgents inaudible
permanent grip from the inside
we're the wrong side

repeat times ten
we're happy again
sinking where you lay
repeat times ten
we're happy again
sinking where you lay
happy again
happy again
happy again

    General CommentI know.. hardly anyone listens to Burning Airlines, its sad. I've met only 1 person in my whole life (personally, not counting online) that listened to them.

    General CommentI love how the song relates to London Calling by The Clash. Same riff at the beginning, drums come in at the same time.

    Also the lines "repeat times ten, you're happy again" stick in your head for days.

    General CommentYeah, there's (unfortunately) not many of us out there...I've been following everything J. Robbins has been involved in since Jawbox. Never made the "London Calling" connection- although it's not EXACTLY the same chords (& it's in a different key), the rhythm & attack is essentially the same. And now the title makes a lot more sense. I'd just be curious as to what "Wheaton" they're referencing.
