And I'm good, good, good to go
And I'm good, good, good to go
I got to get away
Get away from all of my mistakes

And I'm good, good, good to go
And I'm good, good, good to go
I got to get away
Get away from all of my mistakes

So here I sit looking at the traffic lights
The red extinguishes the hope that the green ignites
I want to run away I want to ditch my life
Cause all of my mistakes keep me awake at night

And after all of my alibis desert me
I just want to get by
I don't want nothing to hurt me
I had no idea where my head was at
But if my heart says I'm sorry can we leave it at that
Because I just want for all of this to end

And I so hate consequences
And running from you is what my best defense is
Whoa, Consequences
Oh God, don't make me face up to this
And I so hate consequences
And running from you is what my best defense is
Cause I know that I let you down
And I don't want to deal with that

And I'm good, good, good to go
And I'm good, good, good to go
I got to get away
Get away from all of my mistakes

It just now hit me this is more than just a set back
And when you spelled it out, well, I guess I didn't get that
And every trace of momentum is gone
And this isn't turning out the way I want

And after all of my alibis desert me
I just want to get by
I don't want nothing to hurt me
I had no idea where my head was at
But if my heart says I'm sorry can we leave it at that
Because I just want for all of this to end

And I so hate consequences
And running from you is what my best defense is
Whoa, Consequences
Oh God, don't make me face up to this
And I so hate consequences
And running from you is what my best defense is
Cause I know that I let you down
And I don't want to deal with that

And I spent all last night
Tearing down
Every stoplight
And stop sign in this town
Now I think there might
Be no way to stop me now
I'll get away despite
The fact I'm so weighed down

All of my escapes have been exhausted
I thought I had a way but then I lost it
And my resistance was once much stronger
And I know I can't go on like this much longer

When I got tired of running from you
I stopped right there to catch my breath
There your words they caught my ears
You said, "I miss you son. Come home"
And my sins, they watched me leave
And in my heart I so believed
The love you felt for me was mine
The love I'd wished for all this time
And when the doors were closed
I heard no I told so's
I said the words I knew you knew
Oh God, Oh God I needed you
God all this time I needed you, I needed you

And I so hate consequences
And running from you is what my best defense is
I hate these consequences
Because I know that I let you down
Now I don't wanna deal with that

    This song is about not just any father/son relationship, but it is about God and his child relationship. It is about the son, which is in fact every person on earth, who sins, and is too afraid of what the consequnces will be, so they run away. Running away, however, just makes everything they were trying to escape from catch up with them that much sooner. It also very discouaging: "the red extinguishes the hope that the green ignites". Their "mistakes" haunt them until they repent, confessing their sins to the only one who can really forgive and make their past be something that just makes them stronger. When they do, they see God's love, His unfathomable grace and his unconditional forgiveness. At that moment, their mistakes become stepping stones into a better and richer existence with Christ.

    I feel like this song is about a father/son or mother/son relationship. It seems the son has made a lot of mistakes and disappointed his parents in some way so bad, that he wanted to ditch everything he has and run away. He finally relizes he can't keep running from them, so when he goes back he learns that there was love there all along, and he needed to have that reassurment in his life.
