  • I can't tell you where I've been
    But I hope to God you know
    I want to run away from this
    Fuck California
    It's just the safest place I know;
    Where everything is making sense
    So get me out of here
    And I will take this to my grave
    Yeah, that's my dream

    You took me out to make a point
    I made damn sure you missed your flight
    I've got more lines
    To write about you when you're gone
    Because see, this CD has got me lost
    And songs won't ever save my life
    Just send those post cards to make it known

    That you won't take to heart all the ways I've lost
    Because I'm gone now and I'm trying not to change
    When everything I want to sing is just wasting breath;
    I'm a liar, but I'm working on my ways

    I swear some day when I've got a way to change my life
    I'll be a singer with a throat; and I won't fuck up all these lines
    But that's a hope, yeah that's all I'll ever be
    You used to have your faith in all my words
    But now you're killing all of me

    That you won't take to heart all the ways I've lost
    Because I'm gone now and I'm trying not to change
    When everything I want to sing is just wasting breath;
    I'm a liar, but I'm working on my ways

    I lost my voice, and then my mind
    I wrote a book of all my thoughts
    That could take me from my life
    I had to fight to stay alive
    Because if I make it through the night
    Then I just swear I could survive
    So where's your head
    And all your heart?
    I've got a plan to make this work
    But I can't bring myself to try
    I'll take this slow. I'll make you move
    I know you can hear me screaming because it's all I ever do

    That you won't take to heart all the ways I've lost
    Because I'm gone now and I'm trying not to change
    When everything I want to sing is just wasting breath;
    I'm a liar, but I'm working on my ways
