Looked out with just a dollar fifty and I'm homeless for the day
I was lonely and cold so I walked down to the train station just to pass the time away
Wasted time, wasted day, wasted year
All I know is that I'm growing up so fast and it's scary as hell and I've got to get out of here

It looked so scary to me, it looked so scary to, it looked so scary to me
It looked so scary to me, it looked so scary to, it looked so scary to me
You know from a cold train platform I watched an old man make his way
slowly across the snowy street below
My heart goes out to him and at the same time I'm afraid
Some day it's gonna be my old body walking through snow if I live to get old

It looked so scary to me, it looked so scary to, it looked so scary to me
It looked so scary to me, it looked so scary to, so fucking scary to me
Wasted time, wasted day, waste a day, waste away
We're wasting away

    General CommentIt's about that feeling that you're going no where with your life and how you need to leave the place your in, otherwise you're going to rot there forever...

    "Some day it's gonna be my old body walking through snow if I live to get old."

    ...I personally believe that this is one of the top three songs of the album. It's amazing. :P
