(Da da da de da da da da da da da da)
Let's go

It's not easy making a name for yourself
Where do you draw the line?
I never thought I'd be in this far
Let's have fun some and never change that for anyone
Try not to miss me when I'm gone

(Whoa uh oh, whoa uh oh)
I sold my soul to the open road (will be the downfall)
You'll find me in the same spot believe me
I can never stop, my life's turned upside down

Meet me out past the train tracks I'm leavin' and not coming back

You're right and I was wrong
This town will be the downfall of us all

I'm gonna need you to try to follow along
I did the best that I could to try to write you songs

Now go tell them we sold out!
Like we're the ones who changed
I write what I feel, I say what I mean
You can't buy sincerity

(Whoa uh oh, whoa uh oh)
I sold my soul to the open road (will be the downfall)
You'll find me in the same spot believe me
I can never stop, my life's turned upside down
Meet me out past the train tracks I'm leavin' and not coming back

You're right and I was wrong
This town will be the downfall of us all

Don't forget yourselves we've made up our minds
We signed three, four, five on the dotted lines
Don't forget yourselves we've made up our minds
And we signed three, four, five on the dotted lines

You'll find me in the same spot believe me
I could never stop, my life's turned upside down
Meet me out past the train tracks I'm leavin' and not coming back
You're right and I was wrong

You'll find me in the same spot believe me
I could never stop, my life's turned upside down

Meet me out past the train tracks I'm leavin' and not coming back

You're right and I was wrong
This town will be the downfall of us all
This town will be the downfall of us all

Downfall of us all
Downfall of us all
Downfall of us all
Downfall of us all

    General Commentthat sounds pretty good cyrix thanks for that
    but idk in the first line of the chorus it still seems that "you won't" would make more sense, cause he goes on to say "i could never stop, my life's turned upside down" implying his life is always changing or he is always on the move or something to that
    idk just a thought
    but i do agree that it could easily sound like "you'll" too

    General CommentTo me, this song sounds like a continuation to The Plot To Bomb The Panhandle, where they are still trying to tell the haters to fuck off about how they have "changed" and are not the underground band they fell in love with.

    As for the song it's self it like the whole album is very good, I love the gang chorus and while listening to this, I can picture the giant mosh they will have when this song is played, because just listening to it makes me want to get up and dance.

    General Commentidiots its,

    i'm gonna need you to try to follow along.
    i did the best that i could to try and write you songs.

    like we're the ones who changed.
    i write what i feel, i say what i mean.
    you can't buy sincerity.
