lyrics

you were the one that i thought i could trust,
but when you jumped the gun i knew i had to adjust
what constituted someone seeing eye to eye.
you saw things too black and white
for the shades of gray i chose to stand by.

it's just that i get so tired of that liberal notion
that our beliefs get to end need they be set into motion,
and actions and words relate like that thing they say.
you say "keep it down," and i say "turn the volume up to fifty"

it's just that i get so tired of that same conversation
the one where i back down once it involves confrontation
but when your shit-talking backstabbing tactics still fly
why's that the higher ground
than acting on the things you claim to live by?

and you were the one that i thought i could trust,
but you jumped the gun when you pinned me as just...
i'm not the valedictorian or the ringleader of the crime.
i'm just a kid who gets in trouble sometimes

so who's getting tired of that half-assed notion
that our beliefs get to end need they be set into motion?
and actions and words relate like that thing that they say
you say, "keep it down" and i say "turn the volume up to fifty."
