Wake up!

Oh how the times have changed.
You're not the person I knew back then.
Let's get this straight.
This is a calling, when will they stop falling for this?
You lack all inspiration.

We are not the same.
I'll do whatever it takes
To get it through to you.
We'll call this a day.
We are not the same.
You are worthless.
Stay in your place.

It's like speaking in tongues for all you know.
Will we ever get what we deserve?
How long until the tables turn?
Will we ever get what we deserve?

I've created a monster.
I got a side of me that no one should see.
So quit stalling, pack your bags, keep walking away.
Your life leads to destruction.

We are not the same.
I've struggled to long to sit back and let you take this from me.
We are not the same.
I have given everything.

It's like speaking in tongues for all you know.
Will we ever get what we deserve?
How long until the tables turn?
Will we ever get what we deserve?
Get what we deserve?
Get what we deserve?
Get what we deserve?

Disrespect your surroundings.

You won't make it out alive.
You won't make it out alive.
You won't make it out alive.
You won't make it out alive.

It's like speaking in tongues for all you know.
Will we ever get what we deserve?
How long until the tables turn?
Will we ever get what we deserve?

    The song title is more or less a direct quote from "The Good Son", which is a movie from the 90's about a kid who turns out to be a psychopath. He creates a lifesized doll who he names "Mr. Highway", takes him to a highway overpass, and sits him on the edge of the bridge. Turning to his cousin, who has no idea what's about to happen, he says, "Poor Mr. Highway, he's thinking about the end. He's had enough of this terrible life." grins, and pushes the doll off the bridge into oncoming traffic, causing a massive accident.

    I doubt this is what it actually means, but i see this as the song being what all the "good guys" are thinking in there head when they see a girl they know/like with a complete douche bag.

    To me, this song speaks as a recovering drug addict fighting the conflict within himself/herself as the drug addict tries to stay sober and starts to realize how different he/she has become from the addiction. And as the fog clears they see the aftermath of it all. To me that's how it speaks to me; maybe cause I'm a recovering addict myself. But that's just my opinion of the song.

    My meaning to mr highways thinking about the end is that everyday we have goals that the world just knocks down and noone ever listens. So to me the song is just asking the question of "when the world be on my side? "
