"Last Rites To Sleepless Nights" as written by and Phil Hurtt Thom Bell....
Tonight I'll be wiping my slate clean
I'll be clearing out those clouded memories
Because I don't want to keep living in the past
And I can't stand how I always do that

Tonight because you know I'm sick to death
With every last regret and what I've said
And now all that I really have left
Is my head and it's just a mess

Tonight I'll dance on the graves
Of all my darkest days
And erase all the worries of all the times I've wasted
My scars may never go away
But I've learned not to mind them along the way

Right now I'm giving last rites to all my sleepless nights
Right now I'm starting clean and I'm going on with my life

    General CommentI don't think it's about coke. I think he's talking about being up all night thinking about his past regrets and everything he has done wrong or hasn't gone right. So he's saying I'm going to stop thinking about and living in the past with all the shit that I've done or has been done to me and just live for tomorrow.

    General CommentA lot of songs seem to have been added super recently on December 18th this year by the same guy and no one's left any comments... Do LTJ have a new album coming out or something? What label are they on now anyway, they've been on them all...

    General CommentI agree with wicked123.

    This song makes me feel like getting up and dancing.

    General CommentTo me this song is all about them times when you end up awake all night 'cause you just CANNOT sleep 'cause your so worried/annoyed/upset about things and you have been for a long time and you just promise yourself not to be anymore. Not coke.
    Oh, and I agree with the dancing thing, its hard not to dance to LTJ.
    PS I miss their stuff like this song. In With The Out Crowd just did not cut it.
