"The body is willing, the spirit is weak."
I think to myself as we walk up the street.
We speak not a word, it's gettin' dark.
The power lines pulse, streetlights seem to spark.
But, the spark is dim and the road before me consists of gray shapes shifting uneasily.
If I make it back, I won't leave next time.
A promise made blindly. Is there any other kind?

My conviction is dim as you stand before me.
I don't know what to hope for, I just know what I see,
and if I make it out I won't come back again,
cuz I'll never forget everything that happened.

Each member plays multiple instruments and writes songs, taking it in turn to sing lead and switching instruments between songs. ... more
