"Lights and Trees" felt like it was written in haste to me. I don't think any of us really loved the song like we did others on "Tourist". Nonetheless, we decided to keep it for the record. It had some strong moments, but for the most part it sort of lacked anything special or new. We actually finished recording after Tim had left the band.
Recorded with Tom Gordon @ Imirage Studios in Sparks , Nevada.
The line-up for this recording was:
Zach Pieren Kris Villines Tim Mansfield Brian Boydstun Travis Stewart
The Words: Everything fell into you. I watch my words from a long way off. You fill everything. Everything. I feel your eyes travel, yet winter's so far off. And will you save some for me? My pit of debris. I will bury some of you. Despite pain and grief you still fill everything. Despite pain and grief you still occupy everything. Take me and all of this for I will never look for any less in you. You fill everything
