Best Days of the New Songs


The Top TenXW

1What's Left for Me?

Easily the most overlooked song off the first album. Guitar work is stellar as always. Not to mention some of Travis' most harrowing lyrics. Whimsical will always be number 1 in my book. - TragedyBound27

3Weapon & the Wound

This followed by Die Born, Enemy, Take Me Back The, Touch Peel and Stand, Shelf in the Room, Flight Response, The Down Town, Where are You, Bring Yourself, etc.

4Touch, Peel and Stand

Voted for this because I could not find Dancing With The Wind which is my favorite song. Too bad. This is in a close 2nd however. Like like pizza

He wants to leave from the place he knows, "Kick me out, let me go" cries Travis, as he is overwhelmed by a "releasing sense of getting tired" and wants only to retreat to the confines of his established, predictable, and safe world. He is saying THIS is who I am but it is because of the shelf. I have never wanted to face the reality of the situation. I can see now that my beliefs differ.
