While driving I tend to notice the skids on the shoulder
And wonder what happened
And I wonder how long it's been
Since everyone but me saw that my luck is failing
I don't know what to do with myself
Because this week, it hasn't stopped raining
I wish I could be a kid and have no sense of direction
Then Glenville wouldn't be as fucked as it is

I want to call this place home
But after three hours in the rain
You start to lose hope in what you say
But I'll try to find the good in this place
I want to call this place home
But after three hours in the rain
You start to lose hope in what you say
But I'll try to find the good in this place

I find it funny how the local liquor store is called "Regulars"
Because it explains half the men in the Bayou
I sleep better than I did a year ago
Even though I still wake up without you
At the rate my motivation's taking me
I can't help but get stuck at Pine Ridge
We have the one dude who stands on Lakehill and 50
Who has a sign that says "stop war"
And I guess I can't say that I blame him

I want to call this place home
But after three hours in the rain
You start to lose hope in what you say
But I'll try to find the good in this place
I want to call this place home
But after three hours in the rain
You start to lose hope in what you say
But I'll try to find the good in this place

Been fighting my thoughts about leaving for almost four months now
And I've lost all passion
So I don't even know how to explain how I've changed
But I've come to learn
Youth and defeat don't go hand and hand
Youth and defeat don't go hand and hand

One step forward but six steps back
We're not headed anywhere yet, but at least it's progress
