Same Mistakes: http://rapidshare.com/files/183464885/Same_Mistakes.mp3
This is the audio of an unreleased Rifles song performed live at one of their shows. A great song but with no actual title, I've just called it "Same Mistakes" because of the chorus. I've also done my best with the lyrics here:

The morning's waiting for me
but it finds me sleepin'
all folded up and alone
like the odysseys of Rome

In the art of no control
when the evening creeps in
that's when the sweat starts to pour and all things
bound to get unstuck

And the banging in my head that aches
makes my fingers start to shake
but then I'm brought back home again

One day to another day
wasn't looking for the change but a change come anyway
unstuck like a sitting duck
if it wasn't for the love then I wouldn't make the same mistakes

And now it's so hard to place
the events last evening
one hundred pounds worth of ?----?
and a two stone weight in change
that will always indicate
difficulty breathing
and paranoia floats around and all that's
bound to get unstuck

And I've underslept again
cause it took two hours to take a walk
?with a temper anyway?

One day to another day
wasn't looking for a change but change come anyway
unstuck like sitting duck
if it wasn't for the love, I wouldn't make the same mistakes

And it's so hard to say that I love ya
when ?I found out her problems are not mine?
and I said that I need you
All the things I wouldn't do

And I've underslept again
cause it took two hours to take a walk
?with a temper anyway?

One day to another day
wasn't looking for a change but change come anyway
unstuck like sitting duck
if it wasn't for the love, I wouldn't make the same mistakes

(Please help with the lyrics if you know any)

  2. Sounds like:

    "And the banging in the ?--------?"

    is "and the banging in my head that aches".
