on my first day back in town
i did a good job of keeping my head down
smiling as i go
for we ladies and gentlemen of the road

keep your reckless heart, your crooked teeth, and that wrecked nose
sleeping on floors, huddled in our coats, we are so busted

i'll rephrase my request in the form of a threat
the trouble we make versus the trouble we take
hotel bars and hours and hours,
life is an all-ages show

the life you've waited your whole life for
curled up in a fetal position on the floor
punk rockin, pill-poppin, doing the do
nobody wants to be someone's second choice but i'd do it for you

keep your reckless heart, your crooked teeth, and that wrecked nose
sleeping on floors, huddled in our coats, we are so busted

I'll rephrase my request in the form of a threat
the trouble we make versus the trouble we take
airport bars and hours and hours,
life is an all-ages show
you know?

keep your reckless heart, your crooked teeth, and that wrecked nose
sleeping on floors, huddled in our coats, we are so busted

I'll rephrase my request in the form of a threat
the trouble we make versus the trouble we take
airport bars and hours and hours,
life is an all-ages show
you know?

    General CommentThe life it describes is that of a modern nomadic-punk. It's about living a recklessly, beautiful life. Life is an all ages show because its truly for all ages. It should be enjoyed thoroughly and from beginning to end. Of course, you gotta be able to think fast and be quick on your feet, so going out on your own probably isn't a good idea to when you're twelve.
