Three chords and the truth is what I grew up to believe but was it a lie
It spent my money spilled my blood it took my love and used my time
I found myself with my back to the wall but did I find myself just what I want
Cause all my heroes all my life where always the same the losing kind
Me and Nichols and the losing kind

Just another pretty face was never gonna save my soul
So I put my stock in everything from the sound out here
All I thought
Would make me whole

An angry young kid in an angrier town trying to lash out to burn it all down
So did the fight find me or did I find it I never knew I guess I never will
But I put my money in my mouth cause in that town you can’t back down
So in double time I defied it all but in double time you’re screaming at a wall
Just like Ian screaming at a wall
