I look outside in the cold dark night
Chaos building up inside
Nothing here to calm my mind
Getting lost under the weights of all our crimes
We realized that everything begins and ends and starts again

You really prove you're not my friend
I'm kicking my can again, kicking my can again
Staying quiet hoping nothing will end
I'm kicking my can again, kicking my can again

It's cause you know I'm so good at it
It's cause you know I'm so so good at it
It's cause you know I'm so good at it
It's cause you know I'm so so good at it
Addict addict

Energy upbeat under my feet
Under my feet energy upbeat
Energy upbeat under my feet
Under my feet energy upbeat

Oh so innocent this devil by my side
She's got me running circles she wants me running circles
I'm being swept away by the undertow and tide
Maybe I know just what you mean
When you say it's just a girl thing

You really prove you're not my friend
I'm kicking my can again kicking my can again
Staying quiet hoping nothing will end
I'm kicking my can again kicking my can again

It was so plain he's got his arms in the air
Waving to the heavens waiting for answers it was so plain
He's got his arms in the air
Waving to the heavens waiting for answers it was so plain

It's cause you know I'm so good at it
It's cause you know I'm so so good at it
It's cause you know I'm so good at it
It's cause you know I'm so so good at it
Addict addict

Energy upbeat under my feet
Under my feet energy upbeat
Energy upbeat under my feet
Under my feet energy upbeat

You can only stay away for so long

It's cause you know, sha la la la
It's cause you know, sha la la la
It's cause you know, sha la la la
It's cause you know, sha la la la

    My InterpretationThis song is so wonderful. I live in Portland and it's an awesome local band.

    To me the song is about being in love, or just wanting to be, with someone who is bad for you. She drives him mad, by the sounds of it probably was with another man, but he is addicted to her love and it starts, end, and starts again. He can't break the cycle because he can't get enough of her.

    All in all, catchy and lovely song.
