Get your head straight before it's too late.
Get your head straight and find a better way.

There are good nights, and there are hard rides.
There are a million things to think about when you give up getting high.
Limited sight came back to tired eyes,
And we watched the city lights fight brightly with their will to stay alive.
Everything is gonna be alright.

Get your head straight before it's too late.
Get your head straight and find a better way.

On the whole, we don't talk much anymore.
We might as well be blind and left to rely on scent and semaphore.
This contact craving doesn't legalize these conscious contradictions,
Constrained, and content to stay inside.
This year goes out to metamorphosis.
There's gotta be a better way to begin to get some more from this.
The problem is, I don't know what it is.

(But I'll come)
When I find out.
These are the seeds to monstrous trees.
When I find out...
They're growing out and dropping leads.
When I find out,
They're gonna harvest.
When I find out,
I'm gonna promise to get my head straight.

Get your head straight before it's too late.
Get your head straight and find a better way.

    General Commentthis song is definitely 1 of my favorite boys night out songs (lyrically) because i relate to it a lot. my favorite part is the beginning "Get your head straight before it's too late. Get your head straight and find a better way. There are good nights, and there are hard rides. There are a million things to think about when you give up getting high." It's saying give up drugs, find another way to live, before you're even further in, or dead. Once giving up addiction, you have to live life, and deal with feelings instead of being numb "hard rides" but also, being clean is really rewarding hensce the "good nights". Once you give up getting high, your whole world chances. There's SO much more to think of. Morals come back, motivation comes back, you want to make something of yourself. It's amazing

    General CommentThe whole Boys Night Out self-titled CD is about how the singer of BNO has done way to many drugs, and how he needs to get cleaned up. He knows it, and he wrote a CD about. If you listen closely, it actually tells a story, it's just not as clear as trainwreck.
