I think its obvious we wont understand why he used the lyrics he did,but this album is personal to Charles the vocalist. Its most likely him writing about his memories of his teen years. We may not understand it,but i'd like him to explain each song for maybe a deeper meaning.

Thank you.

And to all you people who say Saosin does this better, I actually disagree. Secret and Whisper have a different sound and are on their own planet with it, I would say. They're faster and more melodic and ambient.

As for you lyric-haters, sometimes simple lyrics are just as effective as eloquent ones with flowery language. I admire Adam Young (Owl City) for his simplicity and limericky cleverness just as much as I admire Kevin Matisyn (Evans Blue, Parabelle) for his eloquence and emotional depth.

mad mad props for even mentioning Evans Blue on this site.
I know man, they were awesome with Kevin. And thanks for the props, Kevin is my favorite lyricist ever. He's up there on par with Anthony Green, skill-wise. Of course that's just my opinion.

Hell yeah old evans blue
Agreed!

yes sir, thats some good shit. whats the lead singer up to these days? i know he was gonna do some solo stuff?
i dont have a clue. evans blue was a band with kickass songs that seemed to never find a place to fit into. they werent part of a scene and that may have hurt them
I disagree. They were part of the whole Breaking Benjamin/Red/Crossfade metal type scene. What really set them apart though was Kevin's voice.

Kevin's in a band called Parabelle now. It was originally a side project that he did with a couple guys from Framing Hanley and a couple other guys too but since Kevin and one of the Framing Hanley guys both got kicked out of their bands they decided to run with it.

See here: http://www.myspace.com/parabelle

Kevin's also working on a solo album, I had the pleasure of actually chatting with him on AIM. =D

His myspace is here: http://www.myspace.com/kevinmatisyn

thats very true. to smart for cock rockers, too mainstream for indie rockers, but still a really soild band. they are still around, but with a diff. lead singer. and let me say, he doesnt hold a candle.
I wouldn't say they were mainstream at all. Their instrumentation was pretty unique back when Kevin was around because I think the collab to combine his vocals with the band demanded it. But now that Chandler is in, they're pretty much a Breaking Benjamin knock-off and sold themselves out.

did they ever tour together then?

Yup. Here's some stuff from EB's wikipedia entry:

In late March 2006, Evans Blue embarked upon their first U.S. tour alongside Taproot. They have since played with bands such as Staind, Alice in Chains, 10 Years, Three Days Grace, Flyleaf and former labelmates Breaking Benjamin.They were accompanied by Framing Hanley, Fair to Midland and Submersed throughout the summer 2007 tour, which spanned through September. Framing Hanley rejoined the band for the tour, with the additions of Saving Abel and Canadian rockers Neurosonic.
