Album: A City By The Light Divided (2006)
  • In a letter sent to fans, it explained, "Geoff Rickly (lead singer, Thursday) lived in a small village for the start of his life and it was extremely boring, so he made a pact with a friend to leave someday for the big city. All his life he lived in this same house, surrounded by this same white fence. He swore he would get out, but his friend died on the train tracks (ties in with "Running From The Rain") in the town. He never left and this if Rickly's grief. >>
