THE TIDE

It's too late to do anything but too early to snooze
Let's watch some silly videos while we warm ourselves with booze
And we haven't left the bed all day
Like sleeping in and going out's the only way
We've found to make the offtime any good

Guess I'm built for the road, like a mobile home
Cuz when we're off tour I start to feel alone
Man the crowds are getting bigger and they know most of the songs
And when I come back to the city I feel like something's wrong

I get unproductive, we start sleeping late
We forget about our goals and miss track of the date
You say "honey, our future's open wide,
Let's enjoy it, and try to sail through this tide"

Isn't it better if we go
Side by side
Hand in hand
Against the tide we'll row

Man I know I'm no position
To complain when I skipped through my tuittion
I could've been a grad with a steady gig
Now I'm travelling through the world just to make it big

And I don't, wanna waste your time
Wanna waste your money, like to spend my life
Just for one more album, one more song
Talking bout' the things that I did wrong

And it's killing me, I wanna show my folks
And my friends back home that I have high hopes
That someday, those empty shows wil be thousands, you never know

Isn't it better if we go
Side by side
Hand in hand
Against the tide we'll row

Make it stop that deafening silence
Fill it with applause or I'll fill it with violence
Give me peace for a night or two
That ringing in your ears when the crowd wants you
Now I'm back in the mass of nameless faces
If it is like they say that we're "Going places"
Let me know when we get there, Katto
Cuz right now I'm dead scared

 

Buy a house, when you make it big
Have some kids! When you make it big
Remember me! when you make it big
What if I tell you, I already feel big

Isn't it better if we go
Side by side
Hand in hand
Against the tide we'll row
