lyrics

I was stopped at the side of the highway
I was stopped at the side of the road
I guess I was going too fast,
I guess I was going too fast for my own good

He let me go with only a warning
He let me go with only these words, he said
"Son you should try to relax,
son you should try to relax for your own good"

I spent the whole day just sitting in silence
I spent the whole day with the radio off
I couldn't think of a good song to sing,
I couldn't think of a single good thing to save my life

It's been so long since I stared at a sunset
I was a kid last time I really felt that
The world was a beautiful place,
and I guess it's a beautiful place, but it's hard to tell

I get so tired of hearing my own voice
But I can't ever seem to want to shut my mouth for shit,
it makes me sick

I can't stop thinking about what that cop said
I can't stop thinking about what he told me
Said "son you should try to relax",
and I really should try to relax for my own good
