I'm afraid that I'm coming apart with each days passing. I lost the air holding your hand burning up time breathing. My wrists so saddened by dull razorblades. and how brave I was staring into the sun wishing my heart was that strong. So don't say that its all gone because there are many days I swore I lost. My wrists so saddened by dull razorblades. You'll pull through this. I wake, I try, with paper wings I fly. And I am clenching faith again, falling to my knees again. And for the first time in my life, I thought that maybe I'd be right. I'm afraid I am coming apart with each days passing. punching holes in the clouds, words gave way when whispers shatter the air. Sewing words together, to make them all fit right.

    General CommentThey were so good at Warped, I thought it was awesome how they cut their set so some of the Drive-thru bands could play despite the difference in music...All of Drive-thru's equipment couldn't get through customs at the Candadian border so some ended up not playing and the whole Drive-thru stage was empty...so Skycamefalling and From Autumn to Ashes shortened their sets so Starting Line and Finch could play..:-D
