when i looked around. i did not see your face in town. and well i know by now. you didn't want me anyhow. well i know by now. you're so cold. these things i cannot change. you're so bold
wake. dark smiles this wishing glass. i will not stay. bathed in loss and shadowed heart. which road. which one is the way home. this is it. i will not wait. i am through with rings. this comic love. i will find my way. find this wretched heart
looking for doorways. and finding halls. windows and walls. and outside the sun. never stops shining. leaves never fall. these hands never failed you. can't see to far. can't see too well. it's all the ending. and you're in hell. who and where to. pain by the pound. i want to help you. but i don't know how


This split includes one track from Planes Mistaken For Stars, three from Houston's infamous Race Car Riot (including a rare vocal performance on"Rain Check) and the conclusion track to The Appleseed Cast's "Ring Wars" story titled "Tale of the Aftermath." We originally heard about Race Car Riot from Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World. We fell for this band so hard that we started to think of what Deep Elm could do as a label to help bands that did not live in New York City (back in the day, Deep Elm only worked with locals bands in an effort to support the local scene, like Dischord). So the idea was a open-submission compilation series...thus The Emo Diaries was born. Of all the songs on the infamous Chapter One "What's Mine Is Yours"...from Jimmy Eat World to Jejune to Samiam to Camber...the Race Car Riot song caused the biggest stir. And there were no lyrics, it's an instrumental. Sometimes words aren't necessary. The music just speaks to you. It's that good. This is the first release in our self-titled Split Series.
