This is a sort of cryptic song about a person I’ve known for a long while who’s got unbelievable amounts of potential but just hasn’t done anything about it. The song’s kind of written from their perspective, and is about how happy I’d feel if one day they told me they were upping ship and just headed out to do something.

Let’s break into the school tonight,
There’s a place that we can go,
To get away from the clowns tonight,
And while I know that it’s cold tonight,
We both know it’s gonna be so much better come the morning light,
Without all of your ghosts.

I drank beer and you drank sparkling wine,
You wrote our names upon the desk,
And you sat down, and said that so should I,
And asked, ‘What happens next?’
I raised my hand to answer you,
And said that, ‘I don’t know.
But this seems liked the perfect time to let you know,
That I’m leaving town in the morning.
I can’t quite believe it. I guess we’ve just got to leave it, gentle soul.’

And gone is that stone from your soul,
Fear isn’t all you will know,
And all straight lives eventually go,
Crooked when high times get low.
