lyrics

I am bored and basic
I am loved
But alone when the day is done

In the absence of arms embracing
I lose resolve
And I wager a wasteful sum

It was a day at the races
You lost it all
In a bet on a worthless run

Wrapped up in the arms of strangers
The pain dissolves
You put your faith in a wasted son

He don't wanna feel that way no more
But he felt like that again
You otta know by now how this might end
'cause you wrote it

There were trials and cases
Your sins laid out
For the rest of the world

The truth came out in stereo
And though overjoyed
The stress was too much for you

In these modern times
Its easy to let go
Of these lifeless lines
When all you have to hold
Are these faded rhymes
On your radio

It was a day at the races
You gave it all
Your heart in a valiant run

Though there were no arms embracing
You found resolve
At the end of a loaded gun
