about

On June 10, 2008 we got lost driving on a lonely highway through the woods of Arkansas. With no gas in the 91’ Ford we accepted the fact that we would be stranded overnight until the world around us woke back up. There we were, hopeless and alone. Lost in the American Night. We’ve never felt so alive and free.

Track Name: Wake The Fear
I need the sun
In my life to live
I fear the nightfall
Will bring about the end
This world I stand on
It will burn again

We can fight the night
And wake the fear
Of all that we have held inside
Cause all we have is rhetoric

I dreamt again
Anticipating death
Out in the ocean
Safely in my bed
The stars above me
Looking down from space
Their gaze will haunt me
Forever scar this place

We can fight the night
And wake the fear
Of all that we have held inside
Cause all we have is rhetoric

Burn Burn
Burn it down for your safety
Burn Burn
Oh the flames of insanity
Burn Burn
You know that it has to
Burn Burn Burn

We can fight the night
And wake the fear
Of all that we have held inside
Cause all we have is rhetoric
Track Name: The American Night
I could tell more than anything else
All I'd ever get from this city was a letdown

How will you ever know just what you wanna be
When everything around you
Is only half as deep as you'd want to see
Well maybe it's around here

All I want to do is waste away
Turn the page on another day
But it's too soon
Lack of clarity has bled me dry
All I crave is the American Night
So dark and true

How will you ever know just what you wanna be
When everything around you
Is only half as deep as you'd want to see
Well maybe it's around here

How will you ever know just what you wanna be
When everything around you
(All I want to do is waste away)
Is only half as deep as you'd want to see
(Turn the page on another day)
Well maybe it's around here
How will you ever know just what you wanna be
(All I want to do is waste away)
Maybe it's around here
(Turn the page on another day)
Track Name: Skulls And Knives
Chicago's too cold
Bring those boys back home
I miss the nights of getting so high
Driving around getting nowhere
Thinking this is the life
Oh and this is the life
Oh and hey how are you?
Did you be what you wanted to be?
Did you see yourself on the TV?
Did you feel like nothing else mattered?

Oh and Jake how's Seattle?
I hear it's really nice over there
Do you get so lonely when they ship you out to sea?

Oh and nothing will compare
To the year of skulls and knives
To the year that we considered
Ourselves family

So this one's to
WBD and the CCC
And everyone in between
To the girl that stole our hearts
To Lar and Mark

Oh and nothing will compare
To the year of skulls and knives
To the year that we considered
Ourselves family
