Words divide
Touched down on a southwest runway
Time collides
Shipments that never came
I drank enough
To almost feel at home right here
But not enough to make me disappear
Breaking rules and breaking down
Never thought twice about it
Pushing drugs and skipping town
Now we just talk about it
What if we never even make it back?
I don’t have the answer
I dropped the ball, we lost our only chance to have luck on our side
Revolving doors
Kept the neighbors up and talking
Unsettled scores
Face offs that never came
I thought a lot
This is not a life I can defend
And after this how could I face my friends
Seconds burned
Throat dry I swallowed my pride and..
Lesson learned
I looked hard and I’m to blame
Fuck it all
Repressing thoughts of suicide
A part of me three years I’ve had to hide

    General CommentThis song always reminds me of the town I went to high school in. Everyone thought they were so bad but they really werent as big as they thought. I think this song is the same and he's sayin that they couldnt let the other people see that it was all a facade. This part makes me think that the most: "Unsettled scores
    Face offs that never came
    I thought a lot
    This is not a life I can defend
    And after this how could I face my friends
    Seconds burned
    Throat dry I swallowed my pride and..
    Lesson learned
    I looked hard and I’m to blame."

    General CommentThis song reminds me of how I used to be, Didn't think about all the rules I broke, pushing drugs with friends and going to diffrent cities and states to pick them up, got arrested, depression, how can you face your close friends and family and such when you know you've fucked up in such a major way, when you think your so tough and all the sudden things get turned around and you realise your nothing, you have to swallow your pride and hope for understanding and forgivness.
