Always was a sucker for a button-down tomboy
two black one white and one blue
he says, " you look familiar", she pretends he doesn't notice
pretending aint so far from the truth

cut up from the beginning oh and neither team is winning
what makes the distance so compelling, where's the sense in it

shell shock and diesel, can't you feel that locomotive
cutting them rails, laying down tracks
a shot at once a million and you know you shouldn't blow it baby
but everybody feels just what you lack

straight up you didn't know it, you takes these lines and you blow it
you lose your questions in the answers and your turn around

you aint been working on no railroad, its all been lies from the get go
you'll learn your lesson as it sets in, no more hand me downs

always was a sucker you knew you shouldn't touch her
one black one white and what you shouldn't do
