These days go by like trucks and trains
Some hit so hard you barely feel a thing
Lights out right now back then and forevermore
Lights out left now these robots marching

To the nearest liquor store
There's something green that's leaving town
Always thought it was blue
Always knew I was wrong

Where it goes hell knows
Maybe somewhere better than here
And what they say of the grass on the other sides true
Too much time looking up is turning everything blue

Including me, including you
Including you
These times count down like boats and planes
Some wash away in undertow

Some plummet down in flames
Lights out right now back then and forevermore
With sirens on this ambulance is racing
To the west coast shore

There's something blue that's leaving town
We always talked about black we're considering brown
Where it goes hell knows
Maybe somewhere better than here

And what they say of the grass on the other sides true
Too much time looking up's turning everything blue
Including me, including the ocean, including you
Feel the ocean blue

Engulfing you
I view the deep blue sea
It's turning red right in front of me
There's something gray that's leaving town

And it's way beyond me
How it gets off the ground
Where it goes hell knows
Maybe somewhere better than here

And what they say of the grass on the other sides true
Too much time looking ups turning everything blue
Including me, including the pilots, including you

    General CommentThis song discribes suicide and death so well that its scary. Alot of alkaline trio's songs deal with pain and loss, but this song tops it all off. Jumping off a cliff into the california ocean and watching your own blood turn the water red before you die. Anyone listening to this song should have some beer and aspirin ready. Alk3 kicks ass
