kevin kills his eleventh olympia
and arries karen out to the car
the lies are piling up so high
that he can't sleep at night
kevin cares for still another
areful company in bed
the clothes are piling up so high now
out of his head

go around son
get your head on
go get her
your watching her walk away
go around son
run along
the stereos on
they're playing your fucking song

kevin holds his hell so tightly
and never ever lets you see
the ride can only go so high now
our lives are all changing

go around son
get your head on
go get her
your watching her walk away
go around son
run along
the stereos on
they're playing your fucking song

    General Commenti think it's about a guy who is with a girl out of loyalty to her. he really cares about her and maybe they have a kid together or something and that's why he's with her but really he's still in love with someone else and all he wants to do is leave her and then she ends up leaving him instead and he realises how much he really wants to be with her

    General Commentbasically, kevin and karen are dating, kevins cheating on her. the "son" is another guy who cares about karen and pretty much knows kevins an areshole but doesnt want to do anything about it. the singer is the sons father whos telling him to get off his ass and tell her how he feels

    General Commentcompletely agree with Ganner
    i totally feel as if i'm watching a close girlfriend of mine being taken advantage of by some asshole when i listen to this song.
    and totally feel like i'm being told to get my act together and go after her

    General CommentI think "son" is Kevin. Because he says "get your head on" like get some sense and don't let her walk away.
