about

I love cheesesteaks because they are so good.

lyrics

A duffel bag and a handshake
A couple months painting houses by the lake
Screaming loud, using God's name
Looking back for someone who felt the same
I know you feel the same
I always knew your name
I'm still the one to blame

Back home on the dry planes
Through the wires I can see red letters fade
I don't care what the books say
I'll wait till we see the light of day

I don't care about the odds,
We're better than this
And I swear this is permanent

But the train's too damn expensive
And the water's never been this cold
In this long line I'm finding out
They draw these lines on maps
And we do just as we're told
In this long line I'm growing old

And I'm the only one without

Your blood was never blue like mine
Or my family tree I tried so hard to hide
Never a drop with me, you looked so good with those
Sweet leaves burning between your lips
At your house down by the border
We pretend there's a reason left to stay
But I just can't see myself in your arms
With so much debt to pay
I see your face on the glowing screen and I swear
It's the best that you'll ever get from me
Wrap yourself up in your new arms
And I'll start running free

But the drinks are too damn expensive
And the air has never been this cold
In this long line I'm growing old
The leaves still make me choke
But they make the voices go
It's been a long time
And I'm still without
