"Fourth & Goal"

You take one step through the front door
Then you stop and breath a sigh
You drop your grocery bags on the hardwood floor
Some days you're just too tired to cry

You call up high school friends every now and then
To relive your glory days
You haven't been happy since you don't know when
So you try to cure it different ways

Life's a smash-up race for the cup
You've been chasing a dream
Now it's time to wake up

You take a couple pills for the headache
Then you smoke to calm your mind
You drink alcohol for the heartache
But what you're looking for you can't find

So you stay out late at the end of the week
In dirty bars at punk rock shows
It's getting rare for you and your family to speak
You're keeping secrets everybody knows

Life's a smash-up race for the cup
You've been chasing a dream
Now it's time to wake up

But we hope that soon you'll see the mirror
And work to salvage what remains
Find some help to think a little clearer
Find some way to deal with all your pains

Because you're driving too fast down a dead-end street
And there are stones at the end of the pass
You better slow down boy or you're bound to meet
With twisted metal and shattered glass

Life's a smash-up race for the cup
You've been chasing a dream
Now it's time to wake up

Because it's fourth and goal...
