Couldn't ask for a better day, two by two
To the ring to the right point of view
Each retreat to the corner that's defined by you
To the ring to the right point of

Lonely reign
She is the boxer, she knows
When and where to strike
He is the boxer, he knows
No peaceful sleep tonight

Caught the downfall of Pete and May, Ryan too
He did not approve of Kayleigh's mood
Doctor Mike was fight or flight at Dundrum School
To the ring to the right point of

No return, no passion left to burn
The boxers grow weary
Their eyesight blurry view

Lonely reign
She is the boxer, she knows
When and where to strike
He is the boxer, he knows
No peaceful sleep tonight

All's quiet on the front
Smokey room
Boxer standing tall, peering through
Finding no one left to fight
What to do?
To the ring to the right point of view

Lonely reign
She is the boxer, she knows
When and where to strike
He is the boxer, he knows
No peaceful sleep tonight

Lonely reign
Lonely reign
Lonely reign

    General CommentDefinitely one of the coolest bands around today. Last year, the drama department at my school got invited to a competition in Scotland, and we were having trouble raising money, so Carbonleaf agreed to play a benefit show in our gym. Not only did they play the show, but they announced on stage that they would be using half of the money they made that night from ticket sales and CD sales and whatnot to press a special CD of the performance to be sold only at my school, and that all profits from the CDs would be donated back to the drama department.

    How amazingly cool is that? They raised an incredible amount of extra money for us, and I have one of a very small number of special release albums autographed by Barry... So fucking cool....
