The last time that I saw you, August of '99,
I should've had my hammer and a few rusty spikes
to nail you on a wall and use bottles to catch your blood
and display you for the neighbors so they know your time had come.

    The first STD song I ever heard was At Your Funeral but As Your Ghost Takes Flight is the one that really made me hooked on STD. No one else was singing songs like this one back then.

    Change in style, wasn't well received, Chris got depressed and concocted an amazing three part concept album about love, loss, regret, isolation from the Self, burial, renewal and birth which ended with an amazing album that rivals SWYA but with a different style. They're Saves the Day but they're not how most people remember them. As a huge fan though, I love their shift as they've matured.

    And now it's at the point where one half of Saves The Day is one half of Glassjaw. Haha.

    It's over-looked because only Chris and 1 other in the recording of this album were part of the original Saves The Day. This album falls short of their earlier albums. It's still good, don't get me wrong. But it isn't REALLY STD
