He never thought that he would leave so soon. Passed out in May, but then woke up June hanging over July. Security! Security! Beware: the cost of living is a one way fare. I'm pulling the alarm, so get in or get out. His polyester sticks out in the crowd. It's true, there is such a thing as too loud -but I won't let him know. White lipstick smeared upon my bathroom mirror. He stuck me with the bill -but I don't care. Ugly or pretty, it's still my city. Make up your mind and get in or get out! Say what you will, but get in or get out! We never thought that he would leave this town. We always that he would hang around getting old with the rest. Jean jackets folded on his closet shelf. The weather begs for leather coats... Ah well.

    General Commentit's really fun to listen to this song, and i know that when i look back on my life it'll be my college song, cause first of all i'm looking at colleges right now, and it just fits with having to make that decission of leaving or stayin and the reasons behind that

    General Commenti like this song a lot. its about picking whether this person wants to stay or leave. the narrator is happy where he is but the person he is singing to needs to make up there mind. *tips her hat*
