Stand up, sit down baby
Gonna be a formal dress down heyday
We decide, why not go downtown
How about you and me, we go get wasted

You'll have, you'll have to excuse me
Please, please, please excuse me
You'll have, you'll have to excuse me
This will be my first time

By definition from grade school to English 30
We quietly become strong so early
Take it or leave it
They can't believe it

They go from kindergarten to killing sprees
They go from heartache to inner peace
100 foot ceilings, 100 percent deceit
He said, let's leave this between you and me

My cats watch my stuff, leave my house
Between you and me the cat burglars are
What did you see, what did you steal
Tell me baby, how does it feel
Yeah, yeah feel

It's a top ten list of things that move me the most
A top ten list of things that bother me most
A top ten list of things that scare me the most
I'd have to say that the future

Wasting time in the fast food line
I decide to walk the fine line
And celebrate life, celebrate death
I choose to celebrate the first
I celebrate the first

We decide to go out walking
The whole time that we're talking
Convinced that we're living
Whole time that we're dying

We decide to go out walking
Whole time that you're talking
Convinced that you're living
Whole time that I'm dying

Keeps me on my toes, where did the time go?
You keep me on my toes, where did the time go?

On the edge of town where the gravel's thin
They're gonna wear you down
Until you're thin and tired, tired, tired

Of wasting time in the fast food line
I decide to walk the fine line
And celebrate life, celebrate death
I choose to celebrate

The first to come, the first to go
The first to say yes, the first to say no
I'm gonna seize this moment

The first to come, the first to go
The first to say yes, the first to say no

We decide to go out walking
The whole time that we're talking
Convinced that we're living
Whole time that we're dying

Keeps me on my toes, where did the time go?
Keeps me on my toes where did the time go?
Keeps me on my toes where did the time go?

You keep me on my toes
You keep me on my toes
