about

A small collection of outtakes from the "Making It Right Again" recording sessions (2004-2005). These are songs that didn't make the album for various reasons. The title track is easily the standout here. Enjoy them for what they are, failed but interesting experiments.

Track Name: A Lie
An hour before everything was alright
I should have left you alone at the end of the night
But I told myself a lie

In a lonely apartment, in the still of the night
All I felt was your heartbeat as you turned out the light
But we told ourselves a lie
But we told ourselves a lie

So I'm left to dream of how things might have been
And hope there's a way to make this right again
I can see you and me stepping in the light again

The tears in the morning I couldn't contain
I was issued a warning, I couldn't refrain
Track Name: So Alone
Scientists gaze through their lenses at night
And they're sure that we're not alone
The moms and dads tuck their kids in tight
And assure them that they're not alone

So why do they feel so alone?
Why do they feel so alone? (I don't know)

People build homes and they all look the same
'Cause we've gotta have places for people to stay
There's so many of them and they're all so close
But the people inside are so far away (from each other)

Why do they feel so alone?
Why do they feel so alone?

The kids at the mall buy expensive clothes
They just want to fit in
The old people dream of the days gone by
And they wish they could have them back again

Why do they feel so alone?
Why do they feel so alone?
I don't know

Why do they feel so alone?
Why do they feel so alone?
I don't know
Track Name: The Descent
[Instrumental - No Lyrics]
