The bittersweet sounds echo everywhere
And you've fallen from me
But you still care
If I could show you everything I see
You must stop wondering what's wrong with me
But I know what's wrong
I just can't get out of bed
The happy pills that make me dead all day
Can't make me happy to be awake
But I'll die a sweeter death once I'm alive
To be someone smiling to feel like I'm home
For another year to get back on my feet

You paint in colors I can't see
But still you're
Drowning in black and white with me
And all I wish
You'll leave before I ever do
'Cause I'm blind enough now to almost ruin you
And never know

    General Commenti love this song. it's depressing though, but i really feel this song. i think everyone has days where they "can't get out of bed". i met someone once, who told me to listen to this song, and i was really glad that i met that person.

    General CommentI think that the best line of this song is "I'm blind enough now to almost ruin you and never know." It's just so terribly sad.

    I love Slowreader. I saw them open for Ozma. I hadn't heard of them before. When I saw their merch., stand I saw that they were selling The Impossibles DVD. I was like " way...these are the guys from The Impossibles!" Profound thoughts, I know.

    General CommentI looked up Slowreader on amazon and only one album, featuring eleven songs, was found. So where is this song located?

    General Commentthis is not a "slowreader" song. But it is very good non the less. Try you tube for the video.

    General Commentthis song :[

    and orian, if this is not a slowreader song, then who wrote it? because there isn't anything on google for this song, except about slowreader. and, it sounds like something they would write.

    General Commentthis definitely is a slowreader song, it is a b-side, as in, not officially released. Gabe and Rory leaked this on the internet, themselves, being it one of their first songs they wrote after the dissolution of the IMPOSSIBLES (which I suggest everyone check out, as well)

    side note__
    "satisfaction is the death of desire" is not necessarily a b-side, though it was not released on their self-titled album, it was featured on the 2nd Fueled By Ramen sampler audio catalog.

    this stuff is audible heaven. it's all genius.
