lyrics

I take one step back from the edge
And I'm living it down
"Around anyone else.."
Back and forth!
I'm, thinking of you
And it's freaking me out!
"Around anyone else..."

I take one step back from the edge
And sit down on her wall
Cigarettes, caffeine-free Diet Coke
Let the stories begin!
This sage of East Ave!
Spinning yarn after yarn!
She said "kids one day Ruth will be gone,
You must take care of her, cats"
As the thunderclouds grew...
I awoke that night,
Covered in ants
With her words in my head
Echoing through and through
She said...

"My, how the time flies by my eyes,
For once in my life, I wish the world would
Slow things down!''

Oh why do we try?
"Take my advice, don't rush to grow old
Your innocence is all you have!"

Back in those younger days,
It said 'No Fear' on my shirt,
But she knew I was filled with it,
She could tell how I hurt!
She said "kids when these days are gone
There's no getting them back"
And as god as my witness,
She knew for a fact!

And the story goes...

I retreat back into myself
And as John hurled that stone...
Came the death rattle moans
From the dog,
And the waves of advice
"That boy will land you in jai!"
Cue the side-burns police
"Hold the door!"
Now it's...'May we come in?..."
There's Jeanette on TV!
And she's bad mouthing me!
The whole town now thinks that
I kill cats
And I never planned to be a
Sociopathic creep! She said...

"My, how the time flies by my eyes,
For once in my life, I wish the world would
Slow things down!''

Oh why do we try?
"Take my advice, don't rush to grow old
Your innocence is all you have!"

Back in those younger days,
It said 'No Fear' on my shirt,
But she knew I was filled with it,
She could tell how I hurt!
She said "kids when these days are gone
There's no getting them back"
And as god as my witness,
She knew for a fact!


And the story goes...
