Blue October

blueoctober1.jpg

is a band that maybe I shouldn't be representing because I only got into them through their last two releases but they need to be represented period and I'm willing to make that stand for them. One thing that really is a strong point for this group is their writing. In fact, when asked about my top five lyricist, Justin Furstenfeld, makes it onto the list easily. Not only am I in awe of his confessional writing and the imagery it creates in my head but I'm also in awe of how he climbs inside every song he sings. The writing is so personal that Justin becomes someone who's acting out his own story. One aspect that contributes to this writing process I believe is his bi-polar disorder which also describes the mix in Blue Octobers music. They tend to put the most dour and sinister imagery and create a song that actually uplifts the listener when they here it! Without further ado here's the music of Blue October!

Here are some songs that represent the material put out before I was first exposed to them!

The Answers


If I can't crawl inside of you,
I'm laughing with a broken face
I stumble across my self esteem.
But to picture the pleasure is making me want my space.

Understand...
that God wrapped you like a bow.
But in my head...
There's some shelves that need cleaning,
from basement to ceiling, control.

If what you're seeing is an open book,
thats great 'cause I'm an open book.
But I'm real shy.

There's a part of me seeking and desperately needing
to open up.
That's strange 'cause I'm an open book,
a confused boy.

I'm an automatic steeple for depressed and lonely people.
My heart while in its cage, is used to give and not
receive a thing,
But the only funny thing is that I don't know how to give myself advice.

I've got this post dramatic thing
I've got this tattoo of a ring that lies
around my wedding finger and that's where I want to state this claim.
That I've got to learn to live and dream
before I go and get myself in love.

In love.

There's Zoloft, Welbutrin, there's Paxil that's proven,
no side effects.
But the rest left unnamed 'cause they worked like a charm on me.

But when your savings is drying,
you can't stop from crying
you've got to suck it up.
You're not her buttercup,
you're not her favorite book.

Black Orchid


Have you ever been so lonely,
No one there to hold?
Pull me in or disown me,
And then climb inside.
My arms are open wide.
Have a look inside.

It is not that I am scared to learn,
Why I'm empty inside.
hold my hand or show some concern,
If I live or die.
My eyes are open wide.
Help me look inside.

I hear the water drip from the faucet.
It's sweetly falling in tune.
I'm gently closing the closet.
I fall to the floor,
and crawl to my room.
The thought of ending it soon...
Just let me sleep in my room.

Hear me cry! cry! cry!
I hear a knock at the front door.
Don't come in!
I try to look at you
But I can't stop shaking.
Leave me alone. Just go away.
Mother I'm so scared.

Empty bed and all of the sheets are gone,
They're wrapped around me and you.
All is quiet but the drop of a gun.
I want to belong...to someone...
But maybe life's not for everyone.

The 21st


The 21st. comes so soon every month
An anniversary of not being strong enough
You're much too co-dependent
A shrink is recommended

Your father tells you to try to be responsible
Your mother loves you, but not the way she did before
Your brother's torn to pieces
But no one knows the reasons

He loves the winter, but it smells too much like memories
The ornament she gave him still hangs from his Christmas tree
A jingle bell will glisten
That's when she loved to kiss him

So say farewell to all the little things she would say and do
The morning, sleepy eyed girl waves goodbye to you
You're much to co-dependent
A shrink is recommended
Yeah...

But yeah, who are the people you hang around with?
Who are the ones you're gonna call?
When you feel like ending it all?
But yeah, who are the people you hang around with?
Who are the ones you're gonna call?
When you feel like ending it all?

But I can't bring you down
But I can't bring you down
But I can't bring you down
But I can't bring you down

But I can't bring you down
But I can't bring you down
But I can't bring you down

Consent To Treatment

Independently Happy with Spoken Word Intro


I feel that it's hard enough to say good-bye.
I feel there's the water. Should I sink or dive?
An empty plate, fill up my sentimental morning star.
I steal the art of putting truth in a lie.
I still want the girl that really caught my eye.
But, she lives in Oklahoma City, far away from me.
An empty hope chest.
Quit the dope quest,
And remain independently happy

I'm finally happy...happy... independently happy...

I deal with the fact that I've forgotten the worst.
I feel that my social behavior may seem somewhat unrehearsed.
Another page,
A sullen rage,
And I'll be back to my normal self.

And I'm finally happy...happy... independently happy...

I drive to the edge of my considerate plain.
I apologize to the people I hurt on the way.
I wipe the slate clean
I kick the daydream,
And remain independently happy.

I'm finally happy...happy... independently happy...

Schizophrenia


A silver plated numbing gum
And Jesus resting on my thumb, ha
A hard to reach malaria
I've got the mood that seems to scare ya
Yeah I'm paranoid, self destroyed
And believe me Lord I'm sorry
I've got the mood that seems to bury ya
I've got the nightmare called
Schizophrenia

[Chorus]
I cry, I cry, and I don't know why
The fever becomes my home
I cry, I cry, and I don't know why
The fever becomes my home
Becomes my home
It becomes my home

And I love it when you're holding me
You have a gentle way of calming
You know, I haven't felt that way since, since 1993,
When my mother held me
I bet you're waiting for the long sob story
Of how I was mistreated again
No, 'cause now I wasn't built that way
I was strong and f***in' desperately brave,
And I didn't mean to scare ya
Schizophrenia

I cry, I cry, and I don't know why
The fever becomes my home
I cry, I cry, and I don't know why
The fever becomes my home
It becomes my home
It becomes my home
It becomes my home
Cry, cry, don't know why
I cry, I cry, and I don't know why

History For Sale
(This is the album where they really started to gather steam)

491762.gif

Razorblade
(This song rocks hard)



In the day by day collision
Called the art of growing up
There's an innocence we look for in the stars
To be taken back to younger days
When there was no giving up
On the people we held closest to our hearts

Yeah it is you that I remember in that glowing
It is you that took my first away from me
It is you I set my standards to... to every walk of life
I haven't met another you since you were with me.

[Chorus]
A brief bout with a razorblade cut me
I freaked out, thinking people didn't love me
I watched closely as the you I knew forgot me
In letting go, I am so proud of what I've done

In a way, I failed religion
I spit the wine from mouth to cup
And I reached for something more than just your God
Uncle, you spared not your children
And while your praying hands are up
There's no forgiveness for you! You sick f***!

It is you that I remember in their bedroom
It is you that took their first away from them
It is you they set their standards to
You wounded them for life
You were a preacher and suppose to be above men

Sing with me

[Chorus]
A brief bout with a razorblade cut me
I freaked out, thinking people didn't love me
I watched closely as the you I knew forgot me
In letting go, I am so proud of what I've done

Come In Closer


The first born, my heart will call Truly
A God-like boy of the sky
The fog hissed away like a movie
And serpents go home for the night
The thundercloud rain hits the freeway
The clowns put on makeup for show
The nightfall, my skin crawl kind of evening
And how the wind she blows
How the wind she blows

(Chorus) I want you to come closer
Come in closer. Come in closer.
I want you to come in closer
Come in closer. Come in closer.
I want you to come in closer, in closer

Come dancing with devils
Need not to know their names
We'll waltz like an army
For the fear of our pain
Our souls become useless
As the day they were born
In a rusted arm rocking chair
Away from your storm

But still, the truth remains lethal
A lie made by man
Where my shoes become hammers
And my words become sand
Like a sour patch, a wedding batch
Of roses you threw across my floor
In the rusted arm rocking chair
Away from your storm

(Chorus)
I really do

Re: "The Official" Blue October Thread

The next two c.d.s are where I started to get into them!

Foiled
(This c.d. is a great example IMO where a band broke into the public consciousness by just doing what it does best! The lyrics are as focused as ever and so is the contrast! Some of these songs have a escapist almost new age vibe IMO!)

blue_october_foiled1.gif

Hate Me
(normally I don't bother with the big hit singles but this one deserved to be their breakthrough song)



(Verse 1)
I have to block out thoughts of you, so I don't lose my head
They crawl in like a cockroach leaving babies in my bed
Dropping little reels of tape to remind me that I'm alone
Playing movies in my head that make a porno feel like home
There's a burning in my pride, a nervous bleeding in my brain
An ounce of peace is all I want for you, Will you never call again?
And will you never say that you loved me just to put it in my face
And will you never try to reach me, it is I that wanted space

(Chorus 1)
Hate me today.
Hate me tomorrow.
Hate me for all the things i didn't do for you.
Hate me in ways, yeah ways hard to swallow.
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you.


(Verse 2)
I'm sober now for 3 whole months, it's one accomplishment that you helped me with.
The one thing that always tore us apart is the one thing I won't touch again.
In a sick way I want to thank you for holding my head up late at night
While I was busy waging wars on myself, you were trying to stop the fight
You never doubted my warped opinions on things like suicidal hate.
You made me compliment myself when it was way too hard to take
So I'll drive so f***ing far away that I'll never cross your mind
And do whatever it takes in your heart to leave me behind

(Chorus)
Hate me today.
Hate me tomorrow.
Hate me for all the things i didn't do for you.
Hate me in ways, yeah ways hard to swallow.
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you.

(Verse 3)
And with a sad heart I say bye to you and wave
Kicking shadows on the street for every mistake that I have made
And like a baby boy I never was a man
Until I saw your blue eyes cry and I held your face in my hand
And then I fell down yelling "Make it go away!"
Just make her smile come back and shine just like it used to be
And then she whispered "How can you do this to me?"

(Chorus)
Hate me today.
Hate me tomorrow.
Hate me for all the things i didn't do for you.
Hate me in ways, yeah ways hard to swallow.
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you.

Into The Ocean
(Perhaps the happiest sounding Blue October song period)


I'm just a normal boy
That sank when I fell overboard
My ship would leave the country
But I'd rather swim ashore

Without a life vest I'd be stuck again
Wish I was much more masculine
Maybe then I could learn to swim
Like 'fourteen miles away'

Now floating up and down
I spin, colliding into sound
Like whales beneath me diving down
I'm sinking to the bottom of my
Everything that freaks me out
The lighthouse beam has just run out
I'm cold as cold as cold can be
be

I want to swim away but don't know how
Sometimes it feels just like I'm falling in the ocean
Let the waves up take me down
Let the hurricane set in motion... yeah
Let the rain of what I feel right now...come down
Let the rain come down

Where is the coastguard
I keep looking each direction
For a spotlight, give me something
I need something for protection
Maybe flotsam junk will do just fine
the jetsam sunk, I'm left behind
I'm treading for my life believe me
(How can I keep up this breathing)

Not knowing how to think
I scream aloud, begin to sink
My legs and arms are broken down
With envy for the solid ground
I'm reaching for the life within me
How can one man stop his ending
I thought of just your face
Relaxed, and floated into space

I want to swim away but don't know how
Sometimes it feels just like I'm falling in the ocean
Let the waves up take me down
Let the hurricane set in motion... yeah
Let the rain of what I feel right now...come down
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down

Now waking to the sun
I calculate what I had done
Like jumping from the bow (yeah)
Just to prove that I knew how (yeah)
It's midnight's late reminder of
The loss of her, the one I love
My will to quickly end it all
Set front row in my need to fall

Into the ocean, end it all
Into the ocean, end it all
Into the ocean, end it all
into the ocean...end it all

[Zayra]
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)

I want to swim away but don't know how
Sometimes it feels just like I'm falling in the ocean
Let the waves up take me down
Let the hurricane set in motion (yeah)
Let the rain of what I feel right now...come down
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down

Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
(In to space)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
(I thought of just your face)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)

Congratulations ft. Imogen heap
(Love this song! has a very Enya inspired sound!)


Is that seat taken
Congratulations
Would you like to take a walk with me

My mind it kind of goes fast
I try to slow it down for you
I think I'd love to take a drive
I want to give you something
I've been wanting to give to you for years
My heart

My heart, my pain won't cover up
You left me.. hu hu hu hu
My heart won't take this cover up
You left me.. hu hu hu hu

I came to see the light in my best friend
You seemed as happy as you'd ever been
My chance of being open was broken
And now you're Mrs. him.

My words they don't come out right
But I'll try to say I'm happy for you
I think I'm going to take that drive
I want to give you something
I've been wanting to give to you for years
My heart

My heart, my pain won't cover up
You left me.. hu hu hu hu
My heart
My heart won't take this cover up
You left me.. hu hu hu hu

And I can't change this
I can never take it back
But now I can't change your mind
(You left me)
And I can't take this
I can never take this back
But now I can't change your mind
can't change your mind
(You left me)
Can't change you mind
(You left me.. hu hu hu hu)
(You left me.. hu hu hu hu)
(You left me.. hu hu hu hu)
(You left me.. hu hu hu hu)

Go away
Make it go away
Please.

18th Floor Balcony
(beautiful raw acoustic song)


I close my eyes and I smile
Knowing that everything is alright
To the core
So close that door
Is this happening?

My breath is on your hair
I'm unaware
That you opened the blinds and let the city in
God, you held my hand
And we stand
Just taking in everything.

And I knew it from the start
So my arms are open wide
Your head is on my stomach
And we're trying so hard not to fall asleep
Here we are
On this 18th floor balcony.
We're both flying away.

So we talked about mom's and dad's
About family pasts
Just getting to know where we came from
Our hearts were on display
For all to see
I can't believe this is happening to me

And I raised my hand as if to show you that I was yours
That I was so yours for the taking
I'm so yours for the taking
That's when I felt the wind pick up
I grabbed the rail while choking up
These words to say and then you kissed me...

I knew it from the start
So my arms are open wide
Your head is on my stomach
And we're trying so hard not to fall asleep
Here we are
On this 18th floor balcony...
We're both flying away.

And I'll try to sleep
To keep you in my dreams
'til I can bring you home with me
I'll try to sleep
And when I do I'll keep you in my... dreams

I knew it from the start
So my arms are open wide
Your head is on my stomach
And we're trying so hard not to fall asleep
So here we are
On this 18th floor balcony, yeah

I knew it from the start
My arms are open wide
Your head is on my stomach
No, we're not going to sleep

Here we are
On this 18th floor balcony... we're both..
Flying away

Re: "The Official" Blue October Thread

The following is the c.d. that really put me over the edge for these guys! I've played and replayed this album from start to finish so many times upon finding it on Rhapsody and after I bought it that same weekend! It's got his most positive writing which involves his child and his darkest which is a murder fantasy!

Approaching Normal
blue-october-approaching-normal.jpg

Dirt Room


I'm like a ghost
I'll be living in a dirt room
Waiting for the day to be close
To the window when you're home
I'll be standing by your back door
Reaching for the knife in my coat
I'm going to put it to your throat
Sweaty piggy, you're a bad man
What a ****ing sad way to go
Your mother raised you as a joke
I should have wiped away a burden
Used the curtain in the kitchen to choke you

Chorus:
You think you own me
You should have known me
You took the future and the food off my family's plate
You think you'll use me
I'm stronger than you
You take my money, but it's useless
We'll see what I do to you
Look what I do to you

Oh god then you awoke
You started screaming through the duct tape
Don't ever think I'm letting you go
I'm busy digging you a hole
Now you'll be living in a dirt room
Breathing through the a straw of your own
I really think that this is fun for the money
I'll make it comfy for the time wasted making you rich
I want to cover you in ants, bees, and honey
Then take a picture for the cover of our album

Chorus:
You think you own me
You should have known me
You took the future and the food off my family's plate
You think you'll use me
I'm stronger than you
You take my money, but it's useless
We'll see what I do to you

Chorus:
You think you own me
You should have known me
You took the future and the food off my family's plate
You think you'll use me
But I'm stronger than you
You take my money, but it's useless
We'll see what I do to you

And now I see you, oh
'Cause your back's against the wall
And finally you're mine
You're mine

Chorus:
You think you own me
You should have known me
You took the future and the food off my family's plate
You think you'll use me
I'm stronger than you
You take my money, but it's useless
We'll see what I do to you

I really think that this is fun for the money
We'll make you comfy for the time wasted making you rich
I want to cover you in ants, bees and honey
Then take a picture for the cover of our album!

Weight of the World


I blackout in the room again
A busted lip and broken skin.
I wake up in the bathroom
and dare not bother asking
why the mirror's cracked and all I see
are shards of glass inside of me.

There's voices there to dare me
my father's here to scare me.
My mother sits beyond the door
she's curled up crying on the floor,
look at what her son's done.

(chorus)
When the weight of all the world's gone wrong.
Wrong again.
Gone ****ing wrong again.

Well liars, they leave a guilty trail.
And let me tell you I've been lying for years.
That must be why I'm standing in this space.
Disregarding that I've created these monsters
they're on both of my sides.
So I wipe the blood from both of their eyes,
from all four of their eyes.

And while I wait for wounds to heal
I see you by the window sill,
your heart's torn out
a plastic spoon
when honesty lit up that room
so I stole the pillow case to clean
this mess I've made of someone's dream.
Now you've seen what I've done

(chorus)

This room is old and wise.
I fall onto the bed and wonder,
"How did I get here?"
The little boy who would argue with a tree
Go ahead, thump his head
he'll turn back to normal.

Now why is that what I see?
Don't bother trusting me.
Don't bother waiting.
Don't bother changing things that won't give into changing.
Just let me go away.
I'm packed.
I'm down.
Whenever.
Let's go.
Let's really really go...

Say It


Its all about steam
Its all about dreams
Its all about making the best out of everything
You'll know when your fine
Cause you'll talk like a mime

And you fall on your face
You get back up man you're doing fine
a considerate clown, a preachy preaching machine
is one of the sweetest things you would say about me
but I don't have the time for your distorted esteem
why are you toying with my mind?

I don't wanna hear you say (x8) it
I don't wanna hear you say (x6) it
I don't wanna hear you say (x8) it
Now you're messing with my pride

Look, you think you're smarter than me
Well everyone knows you will never be smarter than me
That's how it goes
I gained forty pounds because of you
Was there an S on my chest?
Well I confess, you were too much stress
Id have a heart attack at best
So now I breathe it out, I breathe it out
And I spit it on the crowd cause they lift me up, they lift me up, they lift me up

When I'm feeling down
What am I spitting out? spitting out, something we never talk about
Its called my mind

I don't wanna hear you say (x8) it
I don't wanna hear you say (x6) it
I don't wanna hear you say (x8) it
Now youre messing with my pride

Im sick of standing in your line
So now you'll have to take it
take this to heart
I will never let you **** me over
Stop talking down to me your war is old
your game is over
So here's my coldest shoulder

I don't wanna hear you say (x8) it
I don't wanna hear you say (x6) it
I don't wanna hear you say (x8) it
Now you're messing with my pride

My pride
Something we don't talk about
Something we never talk about

Re: "The Official" Blue October Thread

These next three are my absolute personal favorites of the album:

Picking Up The Pieces
(my favorite lyrically)


I really need to talk with you
I keep stepping on the vein
That keeps my lifeline flowing thru
I wanna be your perfect stick of glue
But I don't feel perfect at all
Sad and insecure flaw

I find it hard to hold conversation
I get sweaty sick and I wanna walk away
Its not you its strictly me in this situation
Im wondering will it ever go away just go away

sometimes I feel like weeping
awake and when I'm sleeping
perfecting how to put a game face on

this puzzle Ive been keeping
has been in hiding creeping out the closet door
spilling out onto the floor

How long will I be picking up pieces
How long will I be picking up my heart

Ill be as honest as I feel
I'm getting more paranoid and I'm hearing things
And they never turn out real
It feels like my heart is made of pure steel
Its just so heavy all the time

Yea I'm scared of death
And I'm scared of living
I gave up on the past cause its unforgiving
I misplaced my trust

I watched my word begin to rust
I'm a balloon about to bust
I need a place for reliving

But sometimes I feel like weeping
awake and when I'm sleeping
perfecting how to put a game face on

this puzzle Ive been keeping
has been in hiding creeping out the closet door
spilling out onto the floor

How long will I be picking up pieces
How long will I be picking up my heart

How long (in another space and time)
Will I be picking up pieces in the corner of my mind
How long (its getting oh so hard to find)
Keep picking up pieces in the corner of my mind
But I still walk on

My Never
(one of the most heartfelt pure ballads I've ever heard)


Will you think of me,
in time?
It's never my luck,
So never mind.
I wanna say your name,
But the pain starts
again,
It's never my luck,
So never mind.

Chorus:
And I had a dream that you were with me ,
it wasn't my fault,
you rolled me over,
flipped me over,
like a somersault.
And that doesn't happen to me
I've never been here before
I saw forever in my never,
And i stood outside her
Heaven.

Will you wait for me,
In time,
It's never my luck,
So never mind.
And yeah
i lost a lot of what i
don't expect to ever return
I tend to push em 'till the pushing's turned from
hurtin' to burn,
I always take them to that place I thought they wanted
to go,
but end up dancing 'round
this clown commands,
applause at a show...

Chorus:
I had a dream that you were with me ,
it wasn't my fault,
you rolled me over,
flipped me over,
a somersault.
And that doesn't happen to me
I've never been here before
I saw forever in my never,
And I stood outside her
Heaven
her heaven,
heaven, heaven


And i could only dream of you and sleep,
but i won't ever see sunlight again,
i can try to be with you , but somehow I'll end up just losing a friend,
i can only reach for you
relate to you,
I'm losing my friend...
Where did she go?
where?

Chorus:
I had a dream that you were with me ,
it wasn't my fault,
you rolled me over,
flipped me over,
like a somersault.
that doesn't happen to me
I've never been here before
I saw forever in my never,
And i stood outside her
Heaven
I stood outside her heaven
Let me in your heaven
I wanna live inside your heaven

The End
(one of the darkest most intense songs I've ever heard, it's like being in a horror flick)


Here alone, standing barefoot in our lawn
Worms squeezing their way through my toes
Tonight that's how it goes
I'm at your window, kneeling quiet
I thought at least I'd maybe try to get your head right
Your heart right, let him go
Then through the glass I see your dress fall to the floor
As he embraces every inch of you
The woman I adore
I can't believe the way you're bending
Can't believe this never ending
Moaning asking him for more
Begging him for more

How far will I go
To make it feel right, come home
I have to fix this on my own

Chorus:
Replace my heart
Cause I'm convinced mine broke the day I let us end
Replace my heart
I don't wanna live by coping, I'm done with hoping
End

I creeped in close enough to see the way he touched her
From her feet across her knees, inside her sweetest spot
He pleased and pleased her
I turned around and tried to take control
But no control was capable
A centerfold of how less than low can possibly go
I squeezed the life into my brain
Like pushing knives into a vein
I've gotta get, I said I've gotta get inside
So to the back window I crawl in silence
Standing in the darkness of my living room
This used to be my home

How far will I go
To make it feel right, come home
I'm moving forward to the bedroom door

Chorus:
Replace my heart
Cause I'm convinced mine broke the day I let us end
Replace my heart
I don't wanna live by coping, I'm done with hoping
End

I turn the doorknob with two fingers to be slow enough
To sneak into the room
Among the corner darkness gloom
I had to see this happening
He pushed himself so deep inside her, clapping
Rang and bounced off every wooden walled room
And that's when all went silent blank
Except for the color red
As I walked calmly, numbing, paralyzed beside the bed
I said, "I know I'm not allowed to be here
I just had to see how good your new man really f***s you
Cause you both been ****ing me!"

"So now I planned this last thing
You can both do as a pair"
I tied both blindfolds tight around your f***ing eyes
To blind your stare
I don't want to alarm you
But I figured we could end this
In what seems easy, quick, and painless
"Man, so I'll get down to business
I choose you first, there's a gun, it's at your head
So laugh at me one more time
But put your face inside the bed
You sit and watch me while I do this shit
And learn from what I've said"
I cocked the pistol, pulled the trigger
And all I saw was red

How far will I go
To make it feel right, come home
I have to fix this on my own

Then the screaming, oh, the screaming
It's nice to see you scared
Of such a weak and stupid husband
Who knows you never really cared
I'll leave you with a question
That I need to hear from your head
Was all this worth it knowing
You have just seconds left to live?
Now think about your answer
Lying face down in the bed
I cocked the pistol, pulled the trigger
And all I saw was red
I gently stroke her arm as she lies lifeless on her back
Then I placed the barrel in my mouth
All I saw was black

Their followup c.d., Approaching Normal, is my personal favorite! You should check out The End! It's one of the darkest, most intense songs I've ever heard! :grinthumb

Re: "The Official" Blue October Thread

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Nope! They're are a Texas band! :grinthumb Honestly, I took a backwards trip with these guys after falling unexpectedly in love with Approaching Normal the newest c.d. and seeing them live! I owned Foiled but honestly didn't give it a chance! I have now and it's great with 18th Floor Balcony being my song obsession right now! The early stuff is just a flavor and they improve c.d. by c.d.! :grinthumb
