Go down to wait all night
She's bound to run amok
Invested enough in it anyhow
To each his own
The garden needs sorting out
She curls her lips on the bow
I don't know if I'm dead or not
To anyone

Come on and get the minimum
Before you open up your eyes
This army has so many heads
To analyze...
Come on and get your overdose
Collect it at the borderline
And They want to get up in your head

[Chorus]
Cause they know, and so do I
The high road is hard to find
A detour in your new life
Tell all of your friends goodbye

The dawn to end all nights
That's all we hoped it was
A break from the warfare in your house
To each his own
A soldier is bailing out
He curled his lips on the barrel
And I don't know if the dead can talk
To anyone

Come on and get the minimum
Before you open up your eyes
This army has so many hands
Are you one of us?
Come on and get your overdose
Collect it at the borderline
And They want to get up in your head

[Chorus]
Cause they know, and so do I
The high road is hard to find
A detour in your new life
Tell all of your friends goodbye

It's too late to change your mind
You let loss be your guide
(Repeat x3)

    The high road is the better way. Hard work, patience, moral conscience. The easy way out is giving up. Taking the overdose, going with the crowd possibly even suicide in the case of the soldier. Taking the high road is lonely and unknown.

    Drug use, how it changes your image and the negative effects it has to your health and social environment. Yet still so many people are involved in either the production, transportation, and of course the use. No matter what the negative effects, nothing seems to be changing

    Its about choosing the "high road" the better way of living. Overdosing, killing yourself, (prostitution possibly) can sometimes be the easy way out. It's too late to change your mind when you let loss be your guide. "the low road. " the easier way out of "the welfare in you house" or whatever else is a trap. It sounds like it's comparing joining the military for the wrong reasons in there as well. The high road is hard to find but don't settle.

    The entire album is about opting out of the system, choosing nonconformity and choosing to create instead of just valuing the bs we're told is important.

    Its about staying in recovery.. A woman "running a muck"... "too late to change your mind, tell your friends goodbye".. Whats up with "she has her lips on a bough? Anyone?
