I've got no reason for the things I fear • You look so good it hurts sometimes • It's easy enough to be great... easy enough to be wise • Even heroes have a right to bleed • She's the leader of her own world order... a goddess of her own religion • she remembers bridges, burns 'em to the ground • she talks like summer and listens like june • no, I don't listen good and I'm always in need • she just wants that something to hold on toWhen I'm gone, you'll need love to light the shadows on you face • Forgetting all I'm lacking, completely incomplete • You tell me you don't wanna fight, you're just here to see if I'm doing alright • Fly, fly away so high that you never come back downLet me be lonely tonight.

These are lyrics exerpted from the fourth edition of a compilation CD put together by Birmingham, AL radio station WRAX "Birmingham's Rock Alternative" (107.7 FM). The CD contains songs played acoustic, and live, by various groups. Typically when WRAX brings a band to town to play a concert they'll do a special "invite only" (read: The X gives away tickets) show. From all of those shows WRAX puts together a very Good CD.

All proceeds from the sales benefit United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Birmingham. Each edition has sold out fairly quickly after release. There are 15,000 copies of the Fourth Edition, which was released on December 17, 2001 after a short delay due to production problems.
