Seems to be the way it'll be now
Feeling me before it all
I've got these roads to deceive me
I've been lost on them all
You've got a mouth to feed
I've got a man on the side
You'll see my lie

You've got a town to speak to
You've got rented dye
I drive it around somewhere
Before I was alive
I was alive
You've got a mountain beneath you
You're always know your crime

I'll always have both sides
All the times of hate
All around, this is here

You've got a running see-saw
That's what I heard
I have always felt fine
I've nothing no one nowhere

    General Commentyea I know what you mean about wanting to discuss the music you listen to so much with others. Thats why I like this site, and look forward to seeing if other people posted comments on songs I like.

    As for the meaning of this song I really am still not sure when reviewing the lyrics. I am trying to simplify things by thinking about nothing but the song title, although the lyrics throughout the song are what I am most interested in.
