Lyrics

Late nights and dive bars
Black x's on my hands
Sixteen in highschool and not quite yet a man
Knowing everything just by knowing that I know nothing at all
Three song salute to my wasted youth
Chasing dreams
Waiting for the phone
They say do what you love and the rest will follow
But when love fails me then what's the rest?
A spoonful of sugar will help me swallow this resignation past my chest
Take another breath with your hands on your knees
Stand up baby, they don't want you to breathe
We got a straight spine that'll keep you in line
With a close eye
Wake sure youre doing it right
With your head down low
Down low
Eyes up of the ground
Eyes up off the ground
Head down low
Down low
Eyes up off the ground
Eyes up off the ground
But don't ever go anywhere near giving up
Well I dont think I'm gonna make it
Well I think I've had enough
Let go
Woah
They say youre gonna go far
But how?
I don't believe it
I know now that was only wishful thinking
Let go
Woah
Let go
When I was young
I thought I'd make history
No, I'll fade away in obscurity
Long days with no pay
Bags under my eyes
Still I tell myself I'll make it someday
A dream of mine
Won't be realized
Breaking my back for intangable things
Dreamer come back to a place where I still believe
But beggers cant be choosers
so I'll leave this one to chance
The early bird gets the worm
So I wake up at noon
And get up in advance
Take another breath with your hands on your knees
Let my head fester with doubt
Now its starting to bleed
For the last time they'll keep you in line
With a close eye make sure youre doing it right
With your head down low
Down low
Eyes up of the ground
Eyes up off the ground
Head down low
Down low
Eyes up off the ground
Eyes up off the ground
But don't ever go anywhere near giving up
Well I dont think I'm gonna make it
Well I think I've had enough
Let go
Woah
She said youre gonna go far
But how?
I can't believe
I know now that was only wishful thinking
Let go
Woah
Let go
