The Anniversary was an indie rock band formed in 1997 in Lawrence, Kansas. The band released two full length albums: "Your Majesty and "Designing a Nervous Breakdown" as well as a number of splits. Originally a group of high school friends, Matthew Pryor of The Get Up Kids approached them about recording an album. Designing a Nervous Breakdown was the result. The band broke up on February 6, 2004 despite having a number of songs ready for a third album. Three of the members joined together to form the band The Only Children, taking a few of the completed songs along with them. Justin Roelofs went off to release a self-titled album under the name White Flight and Adrianne Verhoeven released the album "Smoke Rings" under the name Dri.

    The muscle and bone - they encase my heart but never touch my soul.
    I'll save that for the water and its shore, fear makes friends with joy.
    And I'll march slowly and I'll never forget
    How the music stopped or the feel of your breath. (four times)
    The flesh and the blood - they keep my body warm but still my mind is cold.

    I've seen those eyes. I've watched them close at night.
    And you breathe in and you breathe out again.
    Sister's coming over and I'm afraid to tell her secrets that I know.
    Painting without colors, it tends to make it better, it bleaches out the world.
    Was it the end - the end that kept you up till the morning?

    Feeling the time peel away at my life again.
    As memories combine, not sure where I've ever been.
    'Cause it's the D in Detroit which scares me to no end. I'll count to ten.
    When living this down makes so much sense.
    We collide - and onward we do fly

    Sweet Marie, there's a hole where your heart should be
    And on the hill she's begging for a harmony
    Sweet Marie, there's a hole where your heart should be

    Turn down the headlights and look my way
    We'll tell our parents the best of things no matter how awful they seem
    The sickness of a family
    Trace your eyes, wake and retrieve
    The morning sun can look so mean - the color
