lyrics

I think I have checked out from social encounters
And found fortress in these walls
But there white and crazy
They scare and amaze me
How they seem to keep me here

So let the room flood now and I'll tear these walls down
And sail so far away
To a new city so coastal and pretty
And that is how it's going to stay

And if you know about me
You know that I have got
About a month til' I drop
And curse this town
What is it that I need then?
Must I move everything to Sweden?
Whoa, I will not go
Just not yet

I feel like I'm wrecked now and Berkeley should save me
It seems I'm not by myself
We're jumping in numbers, quick coming and going
And I'll follow you all out

My leave can't come too soon
I fear this room will crush me
And put me on display
To raise the awareness and frighten the parents
To pay closer attention to kids
So they will never end up like this

And if you know about me
You know that I have got
A million to nothing shot to make it out
I'll never tear these walls don
They'll stand keeping me from my girl's town
Whoa, they say take it slow
But I have, and I will lose my mind again

And if you know about me
You know that I would like
To record for all my life
I bet that Nick would probably go for the same thing
(And we'd advocate misbehaving)
Whoa, all these trick hos
Which to choose?

It's like I gotta show my lady as proof
Of some sanity
(And I will lose my mind again)
When all of us know
That this is insanity
(As if Maria's just an object of proof)

Oh, I love the way Maria makes me feel today
The sunshine thrills and rain kiss for me

And if you know about me
You know that I have got
About a month till I drop
I'll curse the town that I'm not even at yet
But I'd bet that it's where I'm landing
Whoa, that's where I'll go
And I'll stay

And if you now about me
You know that I can dream
Without any kind of sleep
I'd bet that Nick is exactly the same way
And together we'll rip on this damn place
Whoa, we'll take it down slow,
Let it burn
And if a fire's not enough, sing!
