Description
A cover of a song my friend wrote back in 2003 that I had a hand in. I've always enjoyed it, so decided to do my own version. There were a couple different takes that we recorded-no surprise, I went with the "more rock" version.

Lyrics
We hold a candlelight vigil in a volcano
Singing our hymns to the gods below
Take a stab at this with a shot in the dark
I'm further from the truth when you miss your mark
Too bad hand outs can't hold out hope
Stringing themselves with a soap on a rope
In a place like this-you're damned for a spark
I'm further from the truth the closer they all are

I've got a headline, something that's fit to print
I've got a deadline but I don't know if it lives

I've been living hand to mouth, hand over fist
I bite my own hands I'm a masochist
Chomping at the bit where the tearing starts
My fingertips bleed, performance art
I'm begging you to steal on time borrowed,
so you can teach me everything you know
I'm feeling like shit more everyday
And damn, I hate to see you go this way

I've got a headline, something that's fit to print
I've got a deadline but I don't know if it lives

All the days fall the same

I've got a headline, something that's fit to print
I've got a deadline but I don't know if it lives

All the days fall the same

We hold a candlelight vigil in a volcano
Singing our hymns to the gods below
Take a stab at this with a shot in the dark
I'm further from the truth when you miss your mark
Too bad hand outs can't hold out hope
Stringing themselves with a soap on a rope
In a place like this-you're damned for a spark
I'm further from the truth the closer they all are

I've got a headline, something that's fit to print
I've got a deadline but I don't know if it lives
