I remember when we first met it was freshman summer I cant forget and daydreams of you and i wrote your name on my folder a 1000 times so why can't I let you go? when I know I should well I'm not sure I ever could and how will we go on again? it doesn't matter cause you left me ticks the time away again doesn't matter cause you gone well I remember when we first met and now I'm left to weather if you'll be gone forever but daydreams of you and I theres a place I don't need to try.

Practice all the lines we've rehearsed play will start at nine and drama is a game I've been thru sort thru broken ties and the curtains on the rise in the moment of surprise the stage that i built on holidays so stand back lights on... I won't fail when your gone... I will never die without you fine without you life without you exists...in time So have you seen the show run lately? seats are hard to find and the teachers on the rooftop singing praise aint justified and the curtains on the rise in the moment of surprise our thoughts will coincide on better days so stand back lights on... I wont fail when your gone... I will never die without you fine without you life without you exists...in time and the curtains on the rise in the moment of surprise when you find the part to play don't let it get away

Game over she said i got a new friend and thats harder to face over the deep end its harder to sense she wanted to go home Game over she said are you receiving the time that we spent has been deceiving so were parting our ways with no regrets tonight because I've been doing fine so please don't leave me I've been feeling fine so stop wasting all your time don't deceive me I've been telling lies because I've been doing fine and if you don't believe me I've been feeling fine so stop wasting all your time so please don't leave me all night controlling 2 player situation will surely result in hesitation continuing lives and continuing tries will surely result the situation So game over she said the level needed for the time and the place has been defeated so don't blame its hard to believe it was love we had because I've been doing fine

This one dimension of myself has hurt the ones I love and I have come to shut you out and the god I fear above and I will make my way through the lines drawn on the floor it goes away so quickly now but I've been gone before and everything I do and everything I say they come in conflict even as I sing this song today and I know I've let you down please know it's not your fault because knowing you has made me halfway decent by default so let me go and fall asleep when I wake up it won't be me so let me go and fall asleep when I wake up it won't be no it won't be me and everything I do and everything I say they come in conflict even as I sing this song today and I know I've let you down please know its not your fault because loving me has made me halfway decent by default so let me go and fall asleep when I wake up it won't be me so let me go and fall asleep when I wake up it won't be so let me go and fall asleep when I wake up it won't be me so let me go and fall asleep when I wake up it won't be

and so I can't decide if I wanna stay or leave tonight cause a dream has called that I've waited for my entire life so leave the window open cause tonight I think I'm coming home so leave the window open for tonight... and so baby I'll be missing everything I leave behind but just maybe I'll be finding what it takes to feel alive so leave the window open cause tonight I think I'm coming home so leave the window open for tonight... pictures I have seen... and places in between.... I'll see you in my dreams.....

she has seen no words speak through him he has seen her grow through plastic eyes and the sign thats posted on the door reads do not enter, monster in disguise she says theres no such thing inside but he says that when I finally love me I wont break inside you will see plus I promised mom and dad...... standing, sleeping, sitting, breathing, cant help but feel the cold air in this room complacency and urgency ode to those that know better than I do so she says will I go numb inside but she's says are you the boy who loved me was it something said please tell me because the flaws that run through you will surely trample me you see this soul has many voids throughout me I have fallen deep inside I'll never find the right way and I'M sick of living life through weakness I would rather slip and die than live this life without you so when I finally love me I will break inside you will see cause I promised mom and dad I have this thing called son wrapped up this soul has many voids through out me i have fallen deep inside, I will never find the right way and I'm sick of living life through weakness I would rather slip and die than live this life without you

so hold yourself together I've been good but you've been better now that all our misdirection is left right on me on the car ride home you tell me i was lost could you please tell me broken down and broken off from you inside well I've been waiting for my longing soul to say and she's been holding on for a reason then i might stay if you hold yourself together I've been writing you this letter stating all the things you needed me to say and so ahhh ain't it funny how it used to be like a broke down memory tonight (2x) so staying on is hard to do but breaking down is long over due and i, tend to leave my whoas behind well I've been waiting for my longing soul to say and she's been holding on for a reason then i might stay if you hold yourself together I've been writing you this letter stating all the things you needed me to say if you hold yourself together I've been writing you this letter stating all the things you needed me to say and so ahhh ain't it funny how it used to be like a broke down memory tonight (2x)

Well it's friday night at the football game, the crowd is cheering one more time for me, and everything is going fine so far but life is just ten yards away a football play that goes on three but when you don't know me and you don't see me the ball springs loose you're alone and scrambling once again you're looking for that open man today i'm right beside you screaming you can do this no one seems to understand i'm not afraid to take a stand and when you don't know me it makes no difference what you say you are wrong and maybe you don't wanna say will i just get sacked someday i do this all because of you yeah tired and bleeding it's tough i will go on it makes me wanna sing this song and maybe you don't wanna say dreams come true don't they?

and maybe one day if you would just look straight into my eyes and you would find your son inside not just a twinkle in your eye and maybe you'd say "I did the best I can with what I know" our hollowed past will feed the wrong it makes more sense to move along and maybe one day maybe you'd say keep ourselves from moving on and we will try and get along maybe one day maybe one day we will both just lead our lives and we will try and compromise again, without you some things we're happy you could say: doesn't matter anyway doesn't matter in the end doesn't matter, all depends and I was happy just to say doesn't matter anyway doesn't matter in the end doesn't matter in the end and I was happy just to say I met you and maybe one day maybe you'd say keep ourselves from moving on and we will try and get along maybe one day maybe one day if we could both just lead our lives and we would try and compromise maybe one day so maybe one day maybe one day keep ourselves from moving on and we will try and get along maybe one day

Reviewed by Johnny Loftus
"Audio Karate sounds blatantly, happily (and unhappily) young on Space Camp, its Kung Fu debut, and this continually reminds you that you've heard all of this before. Peppy punk revivalist anthems filled to the brim with earnest vocals, guitarists outdoing each other with power chord slides and keening solos, and enough pogoing melody to fill a thousand Warped Tours -- this is the sound of Space Camp. But who cares if you've heard it before when vocalist/guitarist Art is giving you his mushy, bleeding heart to hold while he blasts out another fabulous riff? "I remember when we first met," he sings in the bomb track opener, "Rosemead." "It was freshman summer I can't forget/Daydreams of you and I/Wrote your name on my folder a thousand times." If you're not teary-eyed yet, you will be when you find out Art messed it up and she left him. "Nintendo 89" is another melodic nugget, featuring great breaks and rhythm guitar chug, thumping bass, and Descendents-worthy high-pitched wailing. Just when the energy-drink high that is Space Camp can't get any more hyper, Audio Karate drops "Senior Year," which tumbles one set of anthemic chords into a successively more powerful set. It's like listening to three of your favorite Cali pop-punk songs at once while looking at the picture of the one who got away in your high-school yearbook. And if Art's singing about the same girl he lost in "Rosemead," back at the beginning of the album, then the boys in Audio Karate have on their freshly scrubbed hands the makings of a sugary skatepunk rock opera."
