look there off in the trees
it's seconds away i know
and i can hardly breathe

i'm not losing face this time
next time i know i'll be face in

tell me you're not alright
tell me you're not alright
we've come this far before and now again
(coming of age)
we've come this far before and now again
(shortened towers)

if i only spoke russian
i would know you and you
would know me

tell me you're not alright
tell me you're not alright
we've come this far before and now again
(coming of age)
we've come this far before and now again
(shortened towers)
we've come this far before and now again
(coming of age)
we've come this far before and now again
(shortened towers)

    General Commentthis song is about how ryan has an unhealthy obsession with espionage and james bond, and wishes that he was a soviet spy. he is also a commie and wishes to take over the american government.

    General Commentthis song is CLEARLY about being caught masturbating in trees. it's also a statement that you should be ashamed when you are caught masturbating as it is a part of everyday life. "tell me youre not all right" may suggest that someone has had their feelings hurt or has even fallen out of the tree. "we've come this far before" suggests that this person has never been able to climax while attempting to pleasure himself. "shortened towers" may also indicate that his erection has not stayed fully erect.

    General Commentthis song is CLEARLY not what you just said, you have a funny imagination though. This song is so cool. I have no idea what it is about. I just ordered the cd. You should too.
