The Top Ten
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
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.
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
You can't compare this song to the rest! Touch, Peel and Stand is amazing!

This is my favorite DOTN song ever! Love it! 😉😉

Surprised this one wasn't on here so I'll add it. It's a great song, probably their best.
