  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    We don't have to tell you how great it is to stick a CD in your new fangled hi-fidelity stereophonic listening system, or how advanced one feels when your car stereo sucks the shiny 12cm music thing into the dash as if by magic! (It's actually magic, but THEY don't want you to know that...)

    You already know the joy.

    But, when you get this baby you'll be bringing home a beautiful, lovingly designed, three-fold digipak that'll make most of your friends and 43% of your enemies wet their pants in jealousy. There's also a gorgeous 16 page booklet containing all the words so you'll already be one up at the local karaoke bar/club/festival.

    It's basically like bringing home a new child... But, better.

lyrics

It started in the evening, on a cold September morning
The city lights were shining down on my bed
I was cold and I was lonely, not a penny in my pocket
You bet your bottom dollar no one cared about me

I’m starting a fire to warm my old bones
Setting the matches in the fire light
The flames reflected in the mouning faces
In the corners and the shadows
On the edges of my mind

I drove into Washington slower than a watershed
Easy on the diesel, easing down the road
I swear to you my old and tired friend
There won’t be any going back for you and me this time

‘Cause, I’m starting a fire to warm my old bones
Setting the matches in the fire light
The flames reflected in the mouning faces
In the corners and the shadows
On the edges of my mind

This is the last time, I won’t remember you
No more friendly faces, no more candy canes
No more longing for the morning never coming
No use in praying for me, no use in praying for you

And, it’s long past time and we’re moving on the city edges
Closing on suburbia and the urban myth we once knew
I can’t describe the feeling that someone’s gotta pay
For the endless isolation, stars and moon, and Hollywood

Chorus

And, soon, with a short sharp jolt
Blue will be black, and laid low we’re coming home as heroes
