There's no way that I'm going out to the bar with you tonight
It's just not very becoming of me today.
And I'm so gotdamn tired of people asking me
"what have you been up to since high school? I heard you went on tour. Did you come back famous?"

Fuck no, I didn't I guess you could say I made up for the money I lost in experience.
(I still went out and tried it, didn't I?)
I'm driving back to the suburbs with indifference to everyone who thinks they have an opinion.
(You still stayed home and drowned yourself in wine)
I think we're over past due on a revenue.
I'm starting to believe less and less in celebrating without accomplishment.

Maybe its so that you need me as much as I need you.
You'll find out slow that you need me as much as I need you.

Are we real friends or am I an accessory?
A friend is a gift that you give yourself until your enemies.
Yeah, I see how it is... Must we justify our friendship through a pic in the mirror?
Verify it by cyber strangers. My dignity is in major danger.

Maybe its a blessing in disguise that we don't see eye to eye anymore,
I don't feel like touching that much anymore, I'd rather talk.
And I don't feel like drinking that much anymore,
I'd rather think about whats in store in my future.

Shit I should have probably gone to college.
Instead of shows and racking up the mileage.
I know those DIY venues and shows littered in PBRs was lots of fun.
I had no intention of doing that for too long, I had to take it back to the 661.
Last night in downtown Bakersfield at 3am I blew a .09 and spent the night in jail.
It's not supposed to be like this, for god sakes I was an honor role student from Stockdale.
Its not supposed to be like this, I pray they never find out what I send in the mail.
It's not supposed to be like this, a young boy doing crazy shit I'd better never fail.

Somehow I don't mind that I fucked up so hard, life just keeps going...
Somehow I don't mind that I fucked up so hard, life just keeps going..
