You have to do it running
But you do everything that they ask you to
'Cause you dont mind seeing yourself in a picture
As long as you look faraway, as long as you look removed

    Wow, the drums on this track are fantastic! Amazing pattern, I've tried to play it but it's impossible for me. Bryan Devendorf is a beast. Fantastic track.

    "Another uninnocent elegant fall into the unmagnificent lives of adults" something Holden Caulfield would say

    Amazing track. The chorus is so beautiful, yet intense at the same time.
