"Knives Bats New Tats" as written by Scot Golley, Daniel Benjamin Yemin, David J Palaitis, Ari Zev Katz and Peter M Martin....
Ever get the feeling ideals can't take us where we need to go?
Sometimes I'd like to just maybe squash your head,
But next time that I see you
I'll probably just smile and say hello
Next time that star shoots across the sky
I'm gonna grab it and smash it under my feet

Who wants to be happy?
I'll sleep on the floor and I'll just lock my door
So Dave don't come and tell me "turn down that shit you play"
I wonder what it would be like to be real deep and dark
Typical and boring yea that's me
If I made up the rules you would be not so close to me

    General Commentall i know is that adam, the lead singer of TAKING BACK SUNDAY, loves this band. he told my friend about them.. and the *next time that star shoots across the sky i'm gonna grab it and smash it under my feet* my friend said was the inspiration for one of adam's tattoos.. which is on one of his arms. and "irony for suckers", the title of one of their songs is in their lyrics for "there's no 'i' in team.".. adam recommended lifetime as a great band to listen to and one of his influences.. kudos to adam and the rest of taking back sunday!

    General Commenthaha- i was just going to post that about adam from tbs. i love that guy, he's so cool. yeah- he's the one that told me to listen to lifetime and i am forever a fan now and forever grateful. the "next time that a star shoots..." lyric is encircled around his elbow- it fuckin kicks ass and so does he.

    General Commentthis song is great. some lyrics are missing, though. after "smile and just say hello," it should say "what's wrong with me? oh, can't you see," then go into the line adam has tattoed on his elbow.
    the line wasn't the inspiration for his tattoo - it IS his tattoo: "next time that star shoots across the sky."
