we can try to move away
burn our hair off change our names
stare at beer and swallow light
touch each other every night

but as my shadow leaves
the empty space left in between
the shallow ache of what had been
and the loneliness that i have seen

our suitcase packed we've had enough
of trying to get mixed up with that stuff
we're ready to change and to grow up
throw out the games in all the houses
where we slept over

(night after night)

where we grew older

(fight after fight)

and our lives gave way
to the things that we say
like we're stuck inside a play

but as we close the door
suddenly we wanted more
just to be seventeen again
and never say goodbye to all our friends


freeze frame back on this shit
with another feat

but this is not a repeat

i keep it moving like a track meet
while my boy jack is trapped in the way way back seat
roll through the slope in a ’94 taurus
the world at large safely ignores us
but lately ruby red eyesight is driving my hindsight crazy

stuck in the maze of my memories
with former lives and the lies i tell as enemies
who all signify that i can’t deny all my contrived anxieties
fuck them, i’m back on the grind
progress is the quest and i’m making good time

pain is the past escaping from the mind
if you want to grow up leave it behind

nothing can change if it's alright
and you'll never grow if you feel fine

can we try again if we go back then?

it doesn't really matter at all
is the answer to the hardest question
waiting for the apple to fall
it's not why it falls but the fact that it falls at all

nothing can change
