Recorded at Saratoga Park Studios in Fremont, CA during a heady time of collaboration with other Epithet artists. The song was composed and written in about 20 minutes, with Jeff Carlson of The Electra.



When we finally got back to Amsterdam
The snow was melting on the ground
The sun was a golden ball of fire
When we got the news across the wire

You looked so shocked
You looked so helpless
And I was helpless too
So we took the train back again
Back again
To Amsterdam

Marching in our wooden footsteps
Two steps from our past
We caught just a glimpse of the sky at night
And we floundered in the candlelight

The days have passed
The dark comes quickly
And I’ve forgotten how
To break the chain, get back again
Back again
To Amsterdam
