Man I hate this town
So I'm looking for the only way out
And the life I wanted years ago is maybe not the life I should have found

I still live for sound
But, lately all the people seem to talk too loud
And my feet are on the ground
But, all the words I say are coming out like crowds

They all know my name
And I don't want the same
So I guess I better go

All those nights wasted on the speed of sound
I still think that I just might come around for one more

It's always nice to blame
But, sometimes this life is certain like your name
And the louder that the songs get played the more those songs will start to sound the same

And I'm afraid I'll stay
It's not because of all of things that you would say
It's cause every time I fall in love is another time I'll watch you walk away

I'm not the same
Cause now I can't change
So I guess I better go

All those nights wasted on the speed of sound
I still think that I just might come around, for one more

All those nights wasted on the speed of sound
I think I might not be around for one more

    General Commentto me its a simple song about growing up and getting sick of the "scene." reminds me of going out all the time to shows... getting wrapped up in a local music scene.. bars, clubs, etc. always seeing the same faces and eventually feeling like you're stuck in a cycle of doing the same things in the same places with the same people. when you're younger, its all fresh and new and exciting.. you spend a lot of time finding your place in it all, but with time, it becomes monotonous and you want to find something more. maybe like a hipster growing up :-)

    never got fully into this band, but i love this song.
