(Jane, he's a freak)
(But so am I)
(And we'll always be freaks and we'll never be like other people)
(And you'll never be a freak 'cause you're just too perfect)

Late nights and bloodshot eyes
Clock ticking half past five
We're barely breathing but we're still alive
Go!

Our plans are all laid out,
Take all these unmarked roads
We blaze the trails to places no one goes, yeah

One last chance to go
If I don't leave tonight I never will, let's go
One last chance to go,
Let's take it now in for the kill

In time we find ourselves
Back where we started from
Too weak to fight and much too tired to run, yeah!

Before you swallow me
Into your perfect life
I'm not going out without a fight

One last chance to go,
If I don't leave tonight I never will, let's go
One last chance to go,
Let's take it now in for the kill

(If I had to leave tonight would you come with me?)
(What?)
(If I had to go to New York, and live, tonight, would you come with me?)

But this blueprint's faded grey
And here it seems like just yesterday
When we mapped out the details of our great escape

But still these roads all beckon me
To uncover their mystery
But I fall like dead autumn leaves and let the jetstream carry me

One last chance to go
If I don't leave tonight I never will, let's go
One last chance to go

    General CommentThe first two verses are about how the person in the song is filled with so much hope and dreams.. Then the last verse is about him having regrets because he never followed his dreams..

    General Commentdefinately about unrealized dreams to break out of conforminty and/or the norm to something more special. besides the line "before you swallow me into your perfect life, i'm not going out without a fight," there's also the end of the song "but I fall like dead autumn leaves and let the jetstream carry me" - he's failed and fallen back into the grey jetstream of conformity

    General CommentDefinitely agree with ChyldeOfTheLotus on the meaning of this song. Amazing song. The intro leads to so much build up, and when the song kicks in it's like a punch in your face, fucking awesome song.

    General CommentI agree, but I also think that the person does not want to be like everyone else. "before you swallow me into your perfect life, i'm not going out without a fight, yeah!" They want to live life to the fullest even if that means takeing chances and makeing mistakes.
