opener lyrics – jimmy eat world

you told me “don’t you look at the sun, it burns your eyes out”
i disobeyed and see a man who’s going nowhere
he fed me this: “you don’t got to worry, you’re on your feet”
please help me down
should have made room for others who can’t be beat into open sea

i brainstormed and caught up with my friend who’s doing fine now
it’s been uplifting knowing you all have static sources
i fed him this: “man, am i in a hurry to break this chord of our paranoia”
took him too long to notice and now i’m down where i can’t be found

and there’s no antidote for a petty loaf
i think we’ve found the lighter side of our friendly host
i don’t mean to boast, we can face all this nonsense
