This pressure is too much to take.

Every bend reaches a break,

but that's a sore subject.

its time to get your head checked.

you can't keep dwelling on every

moment that slipped by because

with every sunset comes a sunrise

we don't know or care where we go

just turn up that radio

we'll sing along to all our favorite songs

and hope these interstates will go

on and on and on.



So long sincerity, escape your mind

its your save haven from reality

but It's okay it didn't mean much anyway

to me.



It seems like just yesterday.

when we would stay up late out on your front lawn

talking about where we've been and all

the places we're going.

we would lose track of time watching

cars pass us by and I would sneak back

home before the sunrise

.....and how everyday would seem so long

and every night would go

on and on and on



So long sincerity, escape your mind

its your save haven from reality

but It's okay it didn't mean much anyway

to me.



Still bleeding from these back stabbed scars

young boys dying in an old mans war

and your sympathy cant take that away.



so long sincerity, escape from reality.

    General Commentit's such a summer long, just like hanging out with your friends.
    It seems like just yesterday.

    when we would stay up late out on your front lawn

    talking about where we've been and all

    the places we're going.

    we would lose track of time watching

    cars pass us by and I would sneak back

    home before the sunrise

    .....and how everyday would seem so long

    and every night would go

    on and on and on

    General Commentin a way it could be coming from their point of view looking back at where they as a band started (2nd verse) and where they are now (1st verse).
