lyrics

Trying to keep a head above water
Nearly drowned, but “hey, I can’t complain”
You keep saying

Can’t quite put my finger on it
Time moves in the price of gasoline
Ya know what I mean?

Every town has a story
Word of mouth is practically a plea
Through clenched teeth

Keep in mind my prized collection
Hold that thought, it’s carrying me away
That highway

I don’t know why
I’m getting old like
You
So soon

Silhouettes we fight the winter
Cinematic, wrestling with the cold
How long can you go?

Even though you’re stealing from us
That’s okay; we’re stealing from you too
Gotta stay new

Alleviating all your symptoms
All the gems you found along the way
Slide into place

Still I’ve got this nagging suspicion
That’s been banging on the door for years
Through the old fears

I tried my
I tried my whole life
To get away
I paid the
I paid the price for
My escape

Seems so obvious, yet no one’s
Ever done it quite like this, my friend
Out of this dead end

Time to tender resignation
Looks as though your ship has just arrived
The nick of time

Rile them up, and keep them distracted
All the voices that had been drowned out
Stirring about

Remnants of a previous mind frame
You look like you might have seen a ghost
So let’s toast

I don’t know why
I’m getting old like
You
So soon
