Album: Rival Factions (2007)

  • Lyrics
  • Lead singer Andrew Schwab explained to "It's looking at night life culture, dance club culture with a little eighties twist on it - I tried to paint some imagery of the sort of indulgent new wave atmosphere that was twenty years ago that sort of recurred now. And sort of the emptiness of that - living from the hours of midnight to six AM. And how, essentially, when the party ends and you're alone with yourself, how empty life can be when you live for that thing. The chorus is 'I've swallowed it all, but I could never be full. And now they call me a fool for leaving.' I've tried all that. It doesn't work." >>
