this is a foreign feeling, this is the moment you start breathing
after ninety seven seconds spent legally dead
awoken in a panic, someone pounding on your chest
telling you to start again

this is a long time coming, this is the radiator humming
on that last drive home from work that was sucking out your soul
you can lay your roots forever, but sometimes you've gotta go
and let something else grow

and we sing "hey hey hey we wanna stay"
just an hour more or til the night becomes the day
and after that we're gone, 'cause it's time for moving on
cross the country on a song, we sing along

hey hey hey we're still the same
when you wake up still alive and let the sun shine on your face
after that we're gone, there's no use in staying long
cross the country on a song we sing along
