I do not own this song. All credit to the artist. Purely for enjoyment and critical review.

Lyrics:
Hey turn around man I'm gonna take you downtown
If you wanna grab a sack go ahead and do it
My fear of death is set in place by a lie
I glorified you there's the only way of life yeah
My teeth were shakin', slowly surely anticipating
Yeah the wrinkles on my face, they weren't from my old age
I try to understand you throwin' it away
All your talent down the drain, and it just makes perfect sense

When I look you in the eyes it takes me right back
Yeah your future helps me move on from my dark past

Don't give in,
It's not real,
You don't by choice,
Choose to feel

Your words insane; man maybe if I was left brained I could understand all your phony logic
I was indifferent, I saw the first time
Come on back, Come on back, Come on back, to give you life
Hey man it's hard when that loco(motive) keeps on moving
Got some money and some change, just to wait for my train
I try to stop me now, I'm locked and engaged
Come on back, Come on back, Come on back and leave your pain

When I look you in the eyes it takes me right back
Yeah your future helps me move on from my dark past

Don't give in
It's not real
You don't by choice
Choose to feel

We found you laying in your hotel room
With your bible tied up because you were actin' a fool
You started shaking, you were in your bed
Doing everything we could, just hoping that you're not dead
We dragged you out and threw you into our car
Pushed the pedal to the floor, drove to the hospital yard
They brought you in and told us both to wait
I was praying to myself, it's not too late

There are consequences (for your actions)
There are consequences (it's real life)
There are consequences (you can't escape from 'em)
There are consequences
