about

Their Dreams Are Dead was originally released on 2007 and Square of Opposition generously agreed to release the 3rd vinyl pressing in 2015. We're 8 years older but these songs still resonate strong with who we are and what our band is about.

Track Name: The Golden Ghost
The arguments seem endless
And you’re wondering when I’m staying home
And I think that home is where the heart is,
And my heart is every highway, every city,
Every street corner that I have yet to see

We’ll never be what you want us to be
We’ll never leave all this behind
We’ll never be what you want us to be,
And it’s alright

My best friend, he wrote,
“We are more than final etchings on a headstone.
We are more than this song could ever say”
So let’s follow our hearts and make something of ourselves

We’ll never be what you want us to be
We’ll never leave all this behind
We’ll never be what you want us to be,
And it’s alright

'Cause we are more than this song could ever say
Let’s follow our hearts and make something of ourselves
And it will be alright.

Please let go
Don’t hold on so tight.
One day you’ll see that it’s alright to believe in yourself,
That you can be anything
Track Name: Until The Day I Die
I just wanted to say
That you are one of the few people
To make me feel, to make me feel so beautiful

So let’s go to Nevada,
let’s go everywhere that we said we we’re gonna
let’s leave these leaky pipes behind
uncross our legs, unpack me from your mind
lets throw our old clocks away

We've got plenty of time, time

I just wanted to say thank your for making me smile
I just wanted to say thanks for driving while I sleep a while
I just wanted to say we have our whole lives ahead of us
I just wanted to say that we’re not going anywhere

We've got plenty of time, time

We've got our whole lives ahead of us
We’re not going anywhere

I’m gonna love you 'til the day I die
Track Name: Ohio
Miles away from here
Is a place dearest to our hearts
You built the strongest city around
With nothing but yourselves

While others go to sleep to dream of something better
You do your best to make your biggest dreams come true
With voices ringing through living walls and windows you woke
You woke the whole town up

I fell in love with Ohio
I fell in love with Ohio
I fell in love with Ohio

Look what you have done
Look what you have done
The doors are wide open
You made a home for everyone

While others go to sleep to dream of something better
You do your best to make you biggest dreams come true
With voices ringing through living walls and windows you woke
You woke the whole town up

I fell in love with Ohio
I fell in love with Ohio
I fell in love with Ohio

While others sleep to dream
You'll make your dreams come true
While others go to sleep to dream
We're singing in your living room
Track Name: South 1st
Like the dust from our ancient ceiling
Making its way to the ground
We are falling

And we held ourselves against the floodgates
But it was already too late

Deadbolt the door and move on
There’s nothing left for us to say
I gave you words
You gave me your version of loving
And now we’re giving each other up

Was it really too much?
Was it really too much to ask for?

And who knew that time would break us?
And who knew that time would be our only excuse?

Everybody’s looking at you
Everybody’s wondering how it feels to be without you
We have nothing left to say
We both fell a long time ago
Track Name: I-78
The longest drive
On the darkest highway
To the brightest city and
I have fallen asleep

I didn't know that this would be our last drive

Do we live for the heat of the moment
Or do our dreams pass by without knowing?
If you’re with me let’s get up and get going!
C’mon let’s go, c’mon let’s go!

At least we can say that we
Crossed the Atlantic ocean together
Track Name: Wave
There is a wave
And it’s 40 feet tall
And we watch it crash together

I’ve been dreaming the strangest dreams
I guess it’s all these changes

And we watch it crash together
Track Name: Let Go
Pull the knives out of our backs
It’s time we let ourselves heal
I think it’s time we let go

There’s so much more to this
There’s so much more than the notes we choose to sing

And isn't it strange that we’re traveling the same speeds
And isn't it strange that we’re traveling to the same places?

There’s so much more to this
There’s so much more than the notes we choose to sing
I think it’s time we let go
Track Name: Until the Day I Die, Part 2
don’t think it would be fair
To say that I understand
Why you spend the day burying your head

And we recall a time
When our words meant so much
I think they still do
Because they have to resonate somewhere
And we’re only getting older
But that doesn't mean we stop believing

And you say you’re comfortable here
In the darkest room of a two story house
But your pain is growing bigger
I think it’s time to get out
Before your heart gives in

How can I love you ‘til the day I die
If you chose to drink yourself to death?
So take my hand and let’s get up!
Take my hand and never stop believing

And I know it’s not easy
But we can try

Take my hand and let’s get up!
I’m going to love you ‘til the day I die.
Track Name: Tour Song
The road has taken a toll on me
And as I look at passing cars, I’m wondering

If I could, would I do this all over again,
Or would I do it without you?
To follow my heart
Means being alone for half the year

Because it won’t be long ‘til we’re home again

And we’re driving all night long,
And we’re not gonna stop ‘til the sun comes up

It won’t be long ‘til we’re home again
Track Name: Lullaby
Your head is against the floor
And I don’t know what to do
I never knew what to do

To say you’re strong is not enough to say what you are
But to be completely honest, I don’t know what else to say

Did you know you laugh exactly the same way?
And every winter comes and it doesn’t get easier
But you do the best you can

So I sing this song to you
To help you fall asleep.
