lyrics

Men of Luggage, check your coats, sit down and stay awhile,
Loosen your ties. Enough rope to hang yourselves,
Is waiting on the nightstand when you're picking up the phone,
I thought at least you would have figure out by now,

That same mistake that you'll make over and over again,

In your lives. You're burying the past and then just digging up the graves.
Don't feel bad, I know you'd fight it if you could.
Making up the rivals who are knocking down your door,
Don't hang around they might be coming back for blood.

That same mistake that you'll make over and over again,
That same heartbreak that you'll make over and over again,
So travel light.

And you're wearing the coat that isn't keeping out the cold,
And you carry that torch for yourself.
And I warn you the flame might just burn you at the touch,
But you don't want to hear about it all that much.

Men of Luggage turn around, try to retrace your steps.
I do not think they will be coming back for you.
Men of Luggage, it's okay, it's hard to live this life,
In your shoes I don't know what I would do.

That same mistake that you'll make over and over again.
That same heartbreak that you'll make over and over again.
So travel light.
