lyrics

Running out of money like I ran away from Asheville, teardrops in the corners of my eyes will make me bashful
But you can't hide the truth, when it's pouring out of you, just like the liquor that you're pouring down your throat
And I believe that sarcasm is just a form of safe truth, filtering the feelings that you're trying not let loose
But you can't fool them all, no your bluffs will all get called, and they'll all see you for what you really are:
Confused, and a little bit scared, and completely unprepared to face this next chapter of life, without a reading light in the dark
And I've been kicking through the leaves like I've been kicking through my plans at night, every time I think they're set in stone, it changes like a stoplight
It goes from green to red, before you know it, you'll be dead, and the yellow light just warned you all along to slow down
All these kids are preaching about living fast and dying young, I suppose I'm into that cuz growing old don't seem as fun
You gotta get it while you can, before you're forced to be a man, and start doing things the way they should be done:
In control, and aware, that you've got to make them care, and the only way they'll care is if someone tells them that it's cool. So is it cool?
