i went out tonight

and met some people i already knew

i touched the wall

and i asked what should i do

you cave, and kill the lights

relive all the fights, learn your moves

then craft some cutting comments
for the evening news

you've run your mouth right down

into the ground and it shows

quit your fakin, you're makin sure

that everybody knows

that boy don't make a sound

as you drag his name through the ground

but your bragging and your baggage, man,
it's so damn loud


eah he could've been a father

he's every woman's son

look at all the tricks he taught her

ain't she pretty, ain't this fun

you'd best put on your brave face

cause you're staring down the sun

those aren't weapons,
they're just broken little toys


i see comedy in the fact that
we're both winning

hey, you scored, when the seasons changed

and you stepped out of the ring

i see fallacy in the fact that
we're both shilling

but what you're selling comes so cheap

you're lying tangled in the corner

they've gone and placed their bets

and all that lies upon the table

is another cigarette

you see a last ditch move to strike now

it just sounds the same

as all the kids out back
with skateboards makin noise



i'm gonna give this street
a whole new name

someone played a old song

you were out there playing games

and the choice of conversation

it was looking rather plain

now your bridges are all burning and

you're dancing in the flames

and you'd like to think
you never had a choice




we're gonna let you win at your own game
