lyrics

Standing on the shoreline assuring myself
that things will be fine but I’m still riddled with doubt
I’ve been pacing the pavement of parking lots and streets,
I’ve been letting go of everything of meaning to me
While the sun sets it’s twilight (on come the streetlights)
hopelessness runs through this town on the power-lines
If we live for the late nights (but miss every sunrise)
then why do we bother with waking up?

(chorus)
I’m sick of the same old weekend, I’ve had it with fair-weather friends
For the first time I’m eagerly awaiting the summer’s end
I’m scared of being trapped here, I dread the thought of working 9 to 5
I’m tired of treading the same roads on these isolated drives

Well of course I'd get pissed when the privileged kids would tell me I’m a pessimist
When all you love leaves and everything you believe falls apart at the seams
you tend to get a little jaded
And it seems as though this city never sleeps…well I’ve gotta go, tell ‘em “hey” for me

(chorus)

Fuck it, I’m broken. I’ll take up smoking. I'll drop out, and move on, and after this I’m gone
And I want you to know I don’t think it’s better to leave here alone, end up running forever

(chorus)
