Or were they listening to Tantric and Live, went to college and acted like the first 18 years of their lives never existed. I'm not sure if it's denial, or I just wasn't that cool when I was their age.

The thing is, I know I wasn't that cool. I still am not.

I remember you telling me what you told me. The first relationship I was ever in. I felt hurt. I felt angry. I told you to get out my car. I quickly sped off. For some reason, the speakers in my car wouldn't turn up loud enough. As I parked the car and walked back...[read more]

This was extremely well written Adam. I don't necessarily "get" that album, as I really have only enjoyed Where You Want To Be and Louder Now. But as someone else has said, the message of this piece is relatable no matter who you are.
