lyrics

when you dumpster dove a shirt of
a band that you never heard of
i knew you were not the same
cuz system of a down is lame
i used to like them too
when i was in high school
and you talked about giving yourself
home tattoos like you
discovered something great
but you were 10 years late
ink, razors and fire
only make sense if you're a minor

but you were 24 going on 25
you thought you were just being born but you were already alive
while i was getting ready to welcome you home and start our life
you were still learning to live
and you decided you could not give
me anything

you should've stayed in california
where the skies are always warmer
and your friends don't age
and you can copulate
with no consequence
to your old boyfriends
so go forth on your adventure
you will never have to answer
to another face
that wishes you hadn't changed
but once you feel like you've lived
you will regret what you did

when you were 24 going on 25
you thought you were just being born but you were already alive
while i was getting ready to welcome you home and start our life
you were still learning to live
and you decided you could not give
me anything
