about

I think this is would be the single. Like Plastic Knives, it grew completely out of a GarageBand goof around and wound up turning into something so much bigger.

lyrics

From suburban homes in RSM
To faithlessness and a punk rock band
I didn't think it'd all go by so fast
Community service and late night shows
I'm not sure where my time goes
I didn't think it'd all go by so fast
It goes by so fast

So stay if you want
Or you can just go
My high self esteem's hit an all time low
It seems once again
That I've lost a friend
My mind's in the red
Here's what I said

Where has everybody gone?
They're missing out on all my songs
I think I'm doing something wrong
There's no one left to sing along
Somewhere along the way I lost it, yeah

'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast
I used to be first but now I'm last
And I used to think that I had some class
One second here, now it's all in the past
'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast
If I was out there, I know I would not last
And I used to think that I had some class
One second here, now it's all in the past

So hand me a pen
I'll write down these words
Put my thoughts on paper so you can be sure
If it happens again
You won't lose a friend
With means to your ends
Here's what I said

Where has everybody gone?
They're missing out on all my songs
I think I'm doing something wrong
There's no one left to sing along
Maybe that's the way I want it, yeah yeah yeah

'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast
I used to be first but now I'm last
And I used to think that I had some class
One second here, now it's all in the past
'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast
If I was out there, I know I would not last
And I used to think that I had some class
One second here, now it's all in the past

So look at me now
What do you see?
I'm everything I want to be
Did I fail?
Did I succeed?
I didn't turn out perfectly
I fought the bullshit
I fought the smears
I wrote these songs for my own ears
That ticking clock's what I most fear
We're out of time I'm sorry dear

'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast
I used to be first but now I'm last
And I used to think that I had some class
One second here, now it's all in the past
'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast
If I was out there, I know I would not last
And I used to think that I had some class
One second here, now it's all in the past

'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast
I used to be first but now I'm last (I'm sorry, dear)
And I used to think that I had some class
One second here, now it's all in the past (I'm sorry, dear)
'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast
If I was out there, I know I would not last (I'm sorry, dear)
And I used to think that I had some class
One second here, I'm sorry, dear
