Sometimes life takes a path that is hard to walk on, so all you have to do is put on your hiking boots.

Everything was golden
Color scraped the sky
And maybe you and I will meet again
But for now
I am gone
So don’t try to tell me that its better
Don’t act like the race is won
Don’t pretend like your leaving
Waving your hand to the side
Because you’re on a fast road looking past me
To the millions behind
And maybe you and I will collide
At the finish line
At the finish line
Chorus- because your on a path of red lights
And your not slowing down
Your going to be the last one standing
And the first one on the ground
Because your going to run through red lights
No one is stopping you now
Your going to run through red lights
Those red lights will chase you down
Those red lights will chase you down

And your trying to build your castle
But it just keeps falling down
And the world isn’t big enough for your ego
So your looking for someone else
But there is no one left to turn to you left them
All behind
At the starting line
At the starting line
And the zero mile line
