Drinking for a living,
That's just what I do.
When I'm not with you,
My heart goes to bed.
The end of the bar,
That's just where I'll be,
Don't try and come find me,
Cause I'm already dead.
With one eye tied upon the open road,
I feel your presence and I can't let it go.
It moves so slowly as it creeps into my mind,
Steals every breath I have and leaves my heart behind.

I wanna know what you're feeling, if you're feeling alone,
I wanna hear if you still care
The last time I remember you was the last time I wasn't scared.

When the night starts fading and and the morning arrives,
I wanna still feel you around,
Will you creep into my head again and pick me up of the ground?
Once more tell me what you're fighting for.

Gotta try, gotta try for tomorrow
When you can't see through today
There's nowhere left to stay.

Sometimes I feel like I'm out here all alone
Just one in a million stuck with no place left to go.

Fear steps up to me with every move that I make,
Following close behind my soul it wants to take.

    General CommentIn the Warped magazine for, I think 03, the Caddies reminded everybody that this song is not a call to action, but rather a warning.

    Didn't really understand the play on words until now. Cute.

    General Commentdamn when I heard it for the first time I loved it, a friend of mine started to mail all bands he liked and this was one of them, he has a great taste of music I must say, and somehow what they sing about is something I've been wondering about the last few months...strange to meet the feeling again...

    General CommentThis is a break-up song, right? The girl dumped the guy and he can't get over her because he misses her. Funny because this mine and my boyfriend's song, and we're still together.
