Written and recorded in October 2010. Oldest song on the EP.
All vocal tracks were recorded with a cold. Fun.
I remember the smell and I remember the taste,
Someone was screaming what it was all about.
Ignored and sustained its waste,
Reason said, "Don't dive to deep,
for you'll only meet Regret,
and I've seen some bad things that I'll never forget."
We'll watch them all go,
Its nearly time for me to go.
Reason, why did I never listen?
How does an empty frame obscure all vision?
Its like being told that you'll never breathe again,
But I can breathe again,
I'm just to scared to see or mend the shattered path ahead.
Take a look outside 'cus we found a bleeding soldier,
Says there's a flood ahead and we better run for cover.
"Take it from me," he pleas, "you can't fight this moving water.
I've heard what it has to say and I heard the Devil's laughter."
We'll watch them all,
Its nearly time for me to go,
