Stuck In The Suburbs Lyrics – Settle Your Scores

I set sail for certain disaster
With every move I make the clock ticks faster
But there’s still so many places I’ll never see
And too many moments that I should have seized
So when I’m laying on my deathbed
Looking back at the life I’ve led
Will I hold my head with pride?
Or will my shortcomings eat me up inside?

There’s gotta be more to life
Than paying bills and waiting to die
I want to do more than just survive
I wanna feel alive

I’m looking back, looking back
Back on everything I never did
And all the things that I should have said
I’m thinking back, thinking back
Back to when I had a perfect shot
But I didn’t take it
Was I too scared or just lazy?
Either way my mistakes still haunt me
Everyone else has it all figured out
But I’m still stuck in the suburbs

I’ve got too much time to ponder
And as my thoughts race I start to wonder
What I could have done differently
And what caliber of man I’d be
And so I’ll waste my breath on another distraction
Anything to keep myself from self-reflection
All I do is sit and complain
As I watch all my best years circle the drain

There’s gotta be more to life
Than paying bills and waiting to die
I want to do more than just survive
I wanna feel alive

I’m looking back, looking back
Back on everything I never did
And all the things that I should have said
I’m thinking back, thinking back
Back to when I had a perfect shot
But I didn’t take it
Was I too scared or just lazy?
Either way my mistakes still haunt me
Everyone else has it all figured out
But I’m still stuck in the suburbs

Stuck in the suburbs
Stuck in the suburbs
Stuck in the suburbs

Don’t wanna lead a life so ordinary
On the contrary
I just wanna be able to say I spent my time doing something worthwhile
Don’t wanna lead a life so ordinary
On the contrary
I just wanna be able to say I fully lived my life

I’m looking back, looking back
Back on everything I never did
And all the things that I should have said
I’m thinking back, thinking back
Back to when I had a perfect shot
But I didn’t take it
Was I too scared or just lazy?
Either way my mistakes still haunt me
Everyone else has it all figured out
But I’m still stuck in the suburbs
