  1. I've never been so emo when I listened to this song while driving on the streets of Paradise City… riding a Krieger F1 in the mountain trail.

  2. Who do you carry the torch for, my young man?
    Do you believe in anything?
    Do you carry it around just to burn things down?

    Meet me tonight on the turnpike, my darling
    cause we believe in everything
    If we sweat all these debts then we're sure to drown
    So we strap ourselves up to this engine now
    with a God that we found, laying under the backseat

    What did you learn tonight?
    you're shouting so loud you barely enjoy this broken thing
    you're a voice that never sings, is what I say
    You were freezing over hell
    You were bringing on the end, you do so well
    You can only blame yourself, it's what I say

    Order your daughters to ignore me, think that will sort me
    and sweep me under the rug
    And a beating with a book everyone
    the book tells you to love
    There is an ember in the heart of the kiln
    And its burning hot with love
    Burning out my sins until there's nothing but dust
    holding me with care into your cigarette
    Cause the God I believe in never worked on a campaign trail

    Feels like we could escape this
    I might throw it away for fear of the silver sun
    If you try running a maze of your lies
    It's too hard to save you've thrown out everyone

  3. i feel fucking retarded for not realizing this band is the same band that Ive been listening to and loving lately that I heard when playing Burnout… ffs.

  4. For me, the best part of this song is at 2:43 when the chorus kicks back in but the drums are different that time, they're playing a heavier, steadier beat. Amazing how a simple drum change can make it sound that much more awesome.

  5. It's been 17 years since I first listened to this band back when I was still in elementary school. Bands came and went and I lost interest in them as I started maturing, but these guys are so great they still hold a spot on my playlist. Such great wordsmithing.

  6. This used to be my shit as a kid and I will come back in the future years to come until I die. Brand new is my main.

  7. Feels like we could escape with our minds,
    I might throw it away for fear of the silver sun
