We were good when we were young That's when we had our fun On the town striking fear Let em know the gang is here Could have stopped the bleeding wound Elephant in the room Bury it deep inside Let me find a place to hide From the boom the collapsing machine Let the shrapnel put you in the tomb Of the dwindling dream Every time I reached out you would call my name Someone new to blame It was looking bad from the start But we took our chance and let it get away Somehow woke from the deep Coma and whisky sleep I've been out a year or two That's what giving in will do Could have said what's on my mind As if I had a spine Bury it deep inside Let me find a place to hide From the boom the collapsing machine Let the shrapnel put you in the tomb Of the dwindling dream Every time I reached out you would call my name Someone new to blame It was looking bad from the start But we took our chance and let it get away

Every day that I took on the world I didn't see the face and I didn't see the curls Of the one who passed me by Laughing in my eye You and I were overtaken Family banished and forsaken Do you have a coin I need another life or two Every day that I tried to relax I got spun around and I wound up on my back With the buzzards up ahead Waiting for the dead You and I were overtaken Family banished and forsaken Do you have a coin I need another life or two With the buzzards up ahead You and me were overtaken Family banished and forsaken Do you have a coin I need another life or two I gave up I need place to play the fool I'll come home running back to you

Leave me nestled in my puddle of bile Holding in your laugh as I take a while Cuz it's just another day in The story of a pawn But I feel like a natural born killer As I dream into the dawn Maybe one day I'll conquer my fears Maybe one day I'll say no to the tears But in the heat of the moment I'm always grasping straws If my face does seem peculiar Guess what that's not all Ask for someone to take me home Away from the demons with whom I roam Cuz the streets are feeling empty And I don't have the buzz And the walk home is familiar Away from the things I've done

If you need a shoulder to lean on What would the solution be If you need an ear to hear you I probably got a place to be If you got a strong opinion On principal I'd have to shrug Just another day in paradise with you Shoving it beneath the rug If your fears all came true I'll tip a glass to you Maybe for a minute I'll keep going with it despite you If you're worried bout the future I'll worry bout it in a year If you're worried we're stagnating That ship already left the pier You're just the Tom to my Jerry Chasing me around the house You cough up a million fur balls and counting I'm quiet as a mouse If your fears all came true I'll tip a glass to you Maybe for a minute I'll keep going with it despite you Some silly reason Reason to hang on If you try to deny The last bit left inside Maybe for a minute Maybe for a minute Maybe for a minute I'll keep going with it despite you

Wouldn't do it if I was sober But at the bar one night We both discussed the things we hated And myself came to mind Don't ask me what i'm thinking I could say too many bad things in response Your father looks like a fat turd stinkin' Oh no here I go there I go you got me going Again There goes my boy There goes my boy There goes my boy Watch me now

Some days I might act too strange Tell me when I'll see you again If you wanted to set me straight I'll stay up and take the bait If you wanted Anything you wanted If you wanted Anything you wanted I'm just worried I'll miss the train I'm just trying to make the change If you wanted to be my brain Don't hold back and take the reigns Who would save me If I fell from the boat Time is ticking I don't know how to float No need to hurry The automatic worry Take a chance to see me through Take a chance to be there too Close my eyes and run away Not this time I'll say it again If you wanted to be that way I'll be here to do it again Who would save me If I fell from the boat Time is ticking I don't know how to float No need to hurry The automatic worry Take a chance to see me through Take a chance to be there too If you wanted Anything you wanted If you wanted Anything you wanted If you wanted Anything you wanted If you wanted Anything you wanted
