I don't see me mad at situations, I see me turn and walk away
I see a tattoo on my right thigh that I will probably regret one day
Yeah, I will probably regret one day
But now, I am happy to be bonding in a kitchen with my friends
A spool of thread, a few more good vibes, a safety pin and a ballpoint pen
A safety pin and a ballpoint pen
A safety pin and a ballpoint pen
And a ballpoint pen

But there are answers here, they're just harder to figure out
Since all your questions got harder to dodge and dip around
And there is nothing wrong with my lifestyle
No matter how many times I tell myself to breathe in, hold it, hold it, now let it out, now let it out

One day I will realize I don't need this because it is just not who I am
Until that day comes, I'll keep my eyes closed, and I will try to feel all of the effects
Yeah, I will try to feel all of the effects
And now I am talking way too fast and a little bit louder than I should,
Trying to say thank you for understanding my side of the story the best that you could
My side of the story the best that you could
My side of the story the best that you could
The best that you could

But there are answers here, they're just harder to figure out
Since all your questions got harder to dodge and dip around
And there is nothing wrong with your lifestyle
No matter how many times they tell themselves just breathe in, hold it, hold it, now let it out

And this is how the cool boyfriend sits in the passenger seat of his girlfriend's car
He's lookin' at me, I wish the light would turn green, set me free, oh set me free, oh set me
Teach my rolling veins where there's a will, there is a way
Just cut me open, let me drain, oh let me drain, oh let me drain, oh let me

I'll move to Florida, and I'll buy a brand new pick-up truck
And I'll tint all the windows including the driver's side
Now you can't see me, so you can't touch me
When I sit at the red light and watch your boyfriend wonder if I'm inside
If I am dead inside

    2 different type of drugs he is describing? And the 'just not who I am' - using them to get over the girl with the new 'cool boyfriend'?

    General CommentI really think the chorus is about a stick and poke tattoo. Giving yourself a tattoo with a saftey pin and the ink from a pen. Now hear me out. Obviously its the front bottoms and lyrics can get deeper then most people appreciate, I feel like the general mood of the song is kinda about having fun in the moment enjoying your life for where your at in that moment. And just like the stick in poke he says "I see a tattoo on my right thigh I will proablly regret some day" he might be referring to how the girl he's with wasn't really something he wanted to get tied down to. But more just something in the moment to enjoy and instead of rushing things he wanted them to happen naturally and maybe the girl moved on just because she wanted someone to call her own for a status or something. I might be totally wrong that's just how I see it and freakin love this band ! Saw them in Birmingham and if you get a chance you should check them out.
