This wasn't for you. This wasn't FOR anyone. It's simply a remoke of a classic. We held hands, we shared beds. She told her that we were lovers. Were we? But this wasn't for you really, what's the cat to do when the mouse is begging? ('02)

'areyouinorareyouout? youcan'twineitherway," he said,'butthefallwillbefantasticandwhat'sleftisnothinglessthanperfection."

It's freezing, but it is the desert, what to do? maybe we'll see a body. Maybe we'll see a few. I shook, did you?

Please, sit down. May I offer you something? Anything you wish..NO NOTHING. IF YOU DON'T MIND, THIS WILL BE RECORDED...

They started far off...but they resound, as sharp as they sound. You can't mistake the sound. First the click, the the visible breath, both parting the bitting cold of the night. They came, they come in time....

Is there something I should know or have I just seen too much?

We were once together, now i'm simply surrounded.

They were perfect, they were beautiful. They met in the middle of of nowhere, in the middle of nothing, and kissed where everyone could see. No words. No before. No after. They kissed and it was perfect. it was beautiful. It was everything. It was nothing.

Eventually it all comes back to this. Eventually you have nothing else. Shame really. MAY I GET YOU SOMETHING? Give me anything.

I saw you in the picture you took with them when you were with him and I took you from it and kept you for myself. WAIT FLASH TAPE'S STILL ROLLING

The power went out. I turned on the radio. The power went out. I turned on the radio. The power went out. I turned on the radio.... I heard a voice

    General CommentI don't know if this has any specific meaning or maybe they just wanted to write a bunch of weird crap in this cd book. Maybe each thought has something to do about the songs it is under

    General CommentI was wondering the meaning to these, also.
    I was thinking that they could be lyrics that weren't made into a song, and they were a few sentences chosen by the band.

    Some of the quotes kind of sound like something from an interview, but I am still puzzled as to what the hell they could mean.

    Whatever they are, they're beautiful.

    General Commenti heard that the notes on the bottom are clues about the next album. see, the one that says 'i turned on the radio...etc' has at the end 'i heard a voice', the name of the new DVD.

    i like them, i find them quite haunting.

    General Commentya, they have some relation to the songs. like how the last one is repeatedly being said, and the last song on the album is "endlessly, she said"
    and "It's freezing, but it is the desert" makes me think of the chorus of summer shudder.

    i agree with akaloowanton with the summer shudder part. "i shook, did you?" reminded me of "with just a look, they shook" from miss murder. like when they looked at you they made you shudder, or shake or shook, and the desert part reminded me of summer, put together is summer shudder.

    General Comment12 paragraphs, 12 songs.
    the 3rd paragraph just says "(date unclear)"... 0.o
    so wouldnt that mean it's from miss murder, and the "i shook, did you?" *shrug*
    but anyway, the missing frame and kiss and control seem obvious just by the song names.
    actually, im thinking the songs were maybe based on these notes?

    General CommentDecemberunderground is a concept album...meaning the whole album makes up a story.
    Just like AFI's previous album, the story may not start on Track 1. One popular theory (and my opinion of the album) is the story of an actor (possibly the same actor from Sing the Sorrow), is recieving an interview. He tells of an affair with one of his costars, and, eventually, the interview is over, and I think the interviewer commits suicide afterward. Anyway, the actor eventually goes to the set of his movie, and kills himself onstage.

    This is not my theory, rather one that I heard on AFI's forums. I think it's a pretty solid theory, and my description was pretty bare-bones (the original description was much more in-depth, interpreting every little nuance of the songs),'s something to think about.

    This album is incredibly inspiring. Even though I enjoy earlier, more punk-based AFI material, this album is one of my favorite CDs. Great job guys!
