lyrics

the grey lady
the freezing lake
the blues behind the smile you fake

you don't decide so either way
it's like you planned it

staying put's a tiny crime
we lost that lull
we lost that time

you used to be a friend of mine
now we're not speaking

time moves so fast and so slow
and now you're a decade older, and it shows
your voice sends shivers down my throat

this giant lake became our sea
the winter's now a part of me
you can keep the sun and those palm trees
cause we're not moving

these college kids they pick a coast
a picket line
a party vote

whatever truth you claim to know
its all and nothing

time moves so fast and so slow
and now your decades over, and it shows
your voice sends shivers down my throat

get a job
and pick a side
marry your boss
fire you wife

the highway's packed at twelve at night
the year is over

I can't believe your phone don't work
your the center of the universe
a melting pot that don't get stirred

you're all and nothing
