A band the preforms good emo songs and aren't one of those pop-punk sellouts. All in all, this is one heck of a good band that is a rare breed. Their music is 100% original and 100% Meaningful.

a emo band with true lyrics that arnt like other bands (ahem...blink 182) who talk about making out in bed.

a band who put on a GREAT show.

a very funny/friendly band who jokes around, but have meaningful lyrics.

a mis-understood band.... just because theyre on MTV.

UH, SOTY doesn't think they're goth. they're emo, and so what if they talk about death alot? they kick ass, and are origional. they arn't like fucking good charlotte, acting punk/goth, when they arn't. SOTY, is awesome, and they're lyrics are deep and meaningful. if you don't like them, you don't like them. if you do, then good for you. *thumbs up*

A "new" pop-punk-emo that nonetheless seems to rehash sentiments, lyrics, and cliches from a million other older, better emo/indie bands.

Deep if you've got an IQ of 50 or less or are a 13 year old girl.

Original if all you listen to is Good Charlotte.

Horrible if you have ears.
<Until the Day I Die> (beginning)

As years go by
I race the clock with you
But if you die right now
You know that I'd die to
I'd die too

You remind me of the times
When I knew who I was
But still the second hand will catch us
Like it always does

We'll make the same mistakes
I'll take the fall for you
I hope you need this now
Cause I know I still do

Until the day I die
I'll spill my heart for you

<Watermark> (middle)

I've got this store-bought way of saying I'm okay, and you've learned how to cry in total silence. We're talented and bright. We're lonely and uptight. We've found some lovely ways to disappoint, but the airport's always almost empty this time of the year, so let's go play on a baggage carousel. Set our watches forward like we're just arriving here from a past we left in a place we knew too well. (Hold on to the corners of today, and we'll fold it up to save until it's needed. Stand still. Let me scrub that brackish line that you got when soemthing rose and then receeded.)

One of these is full of cliches and platitudes and sounds like it was written by a twelve-year old. The other has fairly original lyrics. *hint* the first one is SOTY the second one is the Weakerthans
