Waking up on the floor
Joining ranks with the stains of the nights before
Grab the keys, where's the door?
I've had enough of this town--I can't take anymore
Broken bottles, bits of glass.
Empty packs of cigarettes to last the rest of my whole life.

I'll bite off more than I can chew until it hurts.
Putting the question on my direction.
I'll bite off more than I can chew if to eat your words.
There is no answer for the better or worse.

Waking up on the floor.
"What kind of future is that one to be working toward?"
"I don't know, you tell me."
You've taken quite an interest as of lately.
Bleeding dry of loves for cash,
I've carried you upon my back.
And I, I can't carry you anymore

I'll bite off more than I can chew until it hurts.
Putting the question on my direction.
I'll bite off more than I can chew if to eat your words.
There is no answer for the better or worse.

The road will bring to you something fresh, something new.
Bite more than you can chew until they eat their words.
We calculate a path in all we do, do the math.
The odds are stacked up high, therein the problem lies.

    General Commentin my opinion, this person is frusterated because another person in his life (most likely a lover) has no intentions to step foward, and is so consumed in her own life, and there is a whole world that she is missing out on, and he is sick of trying to make her see this. and it's becoming too much for him to keep 'carrying' her through life.

    but then again, maybe i only see this because it's a reflection of my own life.
