Something Corporate

i was 15 when a friend of mine said 'eric, you gotta hear this band...They're phenomenal' and he gave me 'leaving through the window' by something corporate...and that entire album remains to be one of my favourites to this day...Globes and Maps a favourite song...but the one that speaks to me now is Hurricane...

standing there with your smile blinding
your eyes from seeing
my face as i'm dying
to figure out a girl...

it's violent and chaotic, my head is spinning and sometimes i just feel sick, and around and round i go...but there in the middle is a central point, that all of this wages around...and i wish i could figure this out...everything is said in cloak and dagger...we know what's on the line...

so pull me under your weather patterns
your cold fronts and the rain don't matter
cuz the sunburn's what i needed...

i'm not afraid to use words like love or didn't see the rainbow without a little didn't know how to win unless you've lost...i want to win, but if that means i take a chance at losing, that's worth the risk...

well maybe this time i can follow through
feel complete
stop paying dues
stop the rain from falling
keep my oceans calm
this time i know nothing's wrong...
