You’ve dragged me
Into a darkened ally
You’ve made me
Cause trouble everywhere
And you’ve pushed me
Into your drinking games

Now it’s time to lose
My way around town
Lights turned down
I’m ready to roll
I’ll leave this place behind
Without a note this time

Hood up
I walk by your place
Your arm hung out the window
Your hand grasped a bottle
I can’t look back now
It’s time to leave while I have the chance

It’s time to lose
My way around town
Lights turned down
I’m ready to roll
I’ll leave this place behind
Without a note this time

Walking through this
Low grade movie
Of street fights
And stolen merchandise
I wonder how I survived
After you fooled me into your life

Now it’s time to lose
My way around town
Lights turned down
I’m ready to roll
I’ll leave this place behind
Without a note this time
