It's 5 A.M. when we pull over
at the edge of the everglades
where the sun first hits the southern states
Walking slow and watch the exits
There's more than blood between brothers
and there's more than time between us

We're too blind to see the forest for the trees or palm trees
So you and I drive farther down I95

We've grown enough to know
what we've grown into
and you're everything
I've ever wanted to look up to
If for nothing else, for redemption's sake
just know that
I'm proud to have your blood running through my veins

There's room enough for the two of us
to watch the ghosts of growing up
in the arms of Wednesday morning
In every broken cloud
screaming in orange and rose
I knew that who we are is only what we fight for

We're too blind to see the forest for the trees or palm trees
So you and I drive farther down I95

We sit and watch Wednesday morning fill
the top half of the everglades
(the top half of the everglades)
I never said, "thanks for everything",
but you meant more than anything

We've grown enough to know
what we've grown into
and you're everything
I've ever wanted to look up to
If for nothing else, for redemption's sake
just know that
I'm proud to have your blood running through my veins

We've grown enough to know
what we've grown into
and you're everything
I've ever wanted to look up to
If for nothing else, for redemption's sake
just know that
I'm proud to have your blood running through my veins
