Remove the cables from my sins,
Add to your collection of all my things,
She sails away to an unknown land,
And all these words will never be the same,
Take me back to the real world,
Gifts of anger in all of my wasted days,
Get away if the pillars fall,
My wicked ways,
Adapt to all of my conflicts,
Illegal spells are in the air again,
It's a wish so simple and insane,
And all these words will never be the same,
It's all in ruins,
It's all crumbled,
They are ruins,
It's all ruins,
It's all ruins.

    General CommentMy second favourite B-Side, and brilliant live when dave plays the first half on acoustic guitar. I think it's possibly about a cataclysmic series of events, but i'm not sure

    General Commenti think it is about, that know she has left him, his world has just crumbled and fallen apart and he blames himself for her leaving.

    General CommentI love the line

    "It's a wish so simple and insane,
    And all these words will never be the same"

    Dave sings them with so much emotion
    I think it's something deeper than a break up though

    General CommentProbably should have been on "Overgrown Eden" extremely good for a B-side. This song for some odd reason reminds me of a really sad story that touched my life.
