I used to have this idea
that getting a silver medal wouldn't set me free
oh but you know that I really don't need
catch or fame or credit
nor a big fat bank account with no debit
so just set me straight
cause (??) your peace of mind just cant wait

I sent a telegram marked urgent, urgent
I hope it gets to my door, my big, big door
I'm going free if they kill me
cause this ain't much better anyway

Just push it away
push it away, yeah
just push it away, push it away
push it away

Oh success, that elusive brainchild of breed
something you want, not need
face it, cause
money cant buy true friendship or trust
and applause will never be any substitute for love
but not me man, check it out

I sent a telegram marked urgent, urgent
I hope it gets to my door, my big, big door
I'm going free if they kill me
Cause this ain't much better anyway

Just push it away
push it away, yeah
just push it away, push it away
push it away

    General CommentThis song is awesome, different style of 311. Too bad the best recording of it out there is still fuzzy. The lyrics pretty much speak for themselves, Nick Hexum is a god.
