Fraudulent miracles make miracles cinches
Rice paper princess (guess too poor)

In the mist above perfection
Rain on the parade
Me that's crowding daylight

"And never the two shall meet"
Said the tiger to its greatest fan
The amount of love you wish to give
Is more than I can stand

And now you leave me in defeat
Leave me a battered, broken man
The amount of love you wish to give
Is more than I can stand

Now I have you where I want you
I know that you are listening
This is my chance to tell you everything
My chance to tell you I love you
But I've waited too long
Now the record's over
Now the record's over

    General CommentI think the reason this song means so much to me is bcos, despite everything else Daryl says about this girl on the album, the lyrics here show that every emotion expressed is based around his love for her. He hates her for leaving him bcos he still loves her so much. Thats definately something i can relate to.

    General Commentglassjaw has a lot of lineup changes. the latest report on the album says July sometime. they're done recording according to wickedland.com. the title of the new record is "worship and tribute."

    General Commentapparently sammy seilger was grafted in by ross robinson and then promptly left after recording!! shame cos his new band "rival schools" are good, but his drumming is so restricted and his talent is really wasted i feel....fucking amazing on the glassjaw album tho!!

    General CommentIf you listen very very closely on the first "The amount of love you wish to give is more than I can stand". right when he says give it sounds like he is crying...I'm not positive but it does sound like that. Anyway glassjaw is fuckin amazing...my favorite band by far, can't wait to see them at Skate and Surf Fest and their new album should be amazing.
