Category: goodbye monday b-sides


have you seen what they do to innocence now?

There’s always something somewhere that interrupts your business
Gets in the way of your success
There’s always something somewhere that splits the electorate in two
Renders each half ridiculous

Burn your pile of magazines
Destroy the dial on your radio
Turn your back on that television
See stars in your mind
See the stars in your mind

There’s always something somewhere that catches you on tape
everyone is someone else’s celebrity
Feel free to feel famous when you’re down-
town at the end of the world

You are free to fly…free to deny gravity……stretch time………

There’s always something somewhere that interrupts your business
Gets in the way of your success
Never let anyone anytime tell you that you’re worthless
Dream of love, take back your time!



A harvest-moony reflection, written in November 1993 and left alone until 2007, when the band got into a rainy day mode and dusted it off.

b-side of the Words Of Release single off Goodbye Monday Blue.

on top of a cement sidewalk — under a cloudless sky
you and i had our first embrace — before our first goodbye

then i drove along the freeway — away from the city
saw the skyline in my mirror –- could’ve sworn you were looking at me

i don’t want to know anymore
i don’t need to know anymore
Because i know you’re still there
i just know that you’re still there

so now i’m flyin over this memory — on a hazy afternoon
you have to know that i am watching — you have to know i made it through


Don’t. Break. Down.
b-side of goodbye monday blue

Wishing this time was just in dreams
But it’s one more triangle scheme
You, me and all the distance between…

Sending all those letters home
from the front line like a movie star in the sky
but now you’re wasted like a sequel going nowhere
lie after lie after lie

’cause it’ll be on my head if you break down
you don’t break down
so don’t break down

the dreams the faith we have in each other
through made up war
closing doors
decades every day

there’s a fixed amount of luck in the world
to wish it different would break all the rules

everything falls

still sun shines

you worked hard to make something happen
never say you are not made for this world
just watch out, if you wake up in a messed up mission
because before you know it…

all of a sudden everything falls
away from you

enjoy power while it lasts
tastes change, lovers fly so fast
but all you need is one good last
long time ago

all of a sudden everything falls
into grace when you least expect it
even when it all just falls away
all around you

all of a sudden everything stalls
at the moment of execution
all of a sudden the white phone rings
and it’s for you

do me a favor -> say you’re in grace
say you’re in grace

everything falls
