Am I correct in understanding that vinyl pre-order bundles will be put back up at some point today?

I think either today or tomorrow. I'm sure the band will tweet it out.

Was there intent behind having a few hints to lyrics Vinnie Caruana has written before?

I know it's basically old news, but I can't believe the popularity of lyrics videos, so many singles from our "scene" get one, and not to say they are a bad thing, it's just surprising how popular they got and how fast

One of the best songs they've ever written. And the lyrics are just amazing.

Cigarette smoke dances back in the window
And I can see the haze on the dome light
I'm conjuring ghosts on a forty hour ride home
And they keep asking me what I'm doing with my life

While my cousins go to bed with their wives
I'm feeling like I've fallen behind

Well the highway won
I'm listening to traffic reports one-on-one, coming quietly undone
I was born to run away from anything good
An escape artists's son, with sun drenched pavement in my blood

The first thing that I do when I walk in
Is find a way out for when shit gets bad and

I've been looking for tears in the screen door
I've been waiting for another disaster

Well I'm terrified, like a kid in the 60's
Staring at the sky, waiting for the bomb to fall
And it's all a lie, what they say about stability
It scares me sometimes the emptiness I see in my eyes

And all the kids names I've ever liked, are tied to tragedy
Well I don't want my children growing up to be anything like me

I was kinda hoping you'd stay
I was kinda hoping you'd stay

I keep a flashlight and a small knife
In the corner of my bed stand
I keep a flashlight and the train times
But you wouldn't understand
How could you understand?

Jesus Christ, I'm 26
All the people I graduated with
All have kids, all have wives
All have people who care if the come home at night
Well Jesus Christ
Did I fuck up?

In case anybody was wondering.

This may be my favorite lyric video ever. And it doesn't have anything to do with The Wonder Years, directly. I'm just such a huge fan of that 40's-60's era footage. Everything seems so simple and wholesome. I wish I had grown up in that time. I love the song and the lyrics are great but I found myself not paying attention to either while watching and just peering through the text to see the footage. If anyone in the band is reading this, if I can get just a video with the song and the footage and no text, that would be fucking awesome, haha.

Usually I think they're annoying, but I think the lyrics are one of, if not THE strongest part of the song. Soupy never fails to deliver in the lyrical department.
