lyrics

If you're not careful, you just might still be here
just keep your eyes open
just keep your eyes
it's just an expression, but you find yourself stretched too thin
the midwestern winter threatens to freeze your skin

all of the anger building up inside our cars
just open your window, watch it float away
and all the distractions creeping up inside your head
have every intention of going blind

I'm a lean, mean, dying machine
the biggest mistake that you've ever seen was me
packing my bags to leave

nobody daydreams of living in Illinois
what can I offer you now? I couldn't say
and all the construction workers out on route 59
will they make a difference? I couldn't say

I'm a lean, mean, dying machine
the biggest mistake that you've ever seen was me
packing my bags to leave
You're a lean, mean, crying machine
the biggest mistake that you've ever seen was me
hurting your feelings

If you're not careful, you just might still be here
just keep your eyes open
just keep your eyes
