You're always ready with a question But you never take my suggestions Not this month, not this year not fucking ever Problem is, you've come through for me like never When is this shit gonna end? How long do I have to pretend? You fucking let me down again Is this how you treat all your friends?
When the rain comes you can't cross over the river anymore When the snow falls you'll be sliding once you step outside the door When the sun shines you'll burn up if you walk through parking lots When the wind blows the leaf piles moved like monsters in the night If you even last a day Hallmark Hill's gonna wipe the smile off your face When your neighbors go you'll never know who's living down the street When the land's sold you won't be picking wildflowers anymore When your parents call you better run home through abandoned back yards When the trains rolls the metal squeals like monsters in the night
Fort Worth, TX sold me on too many dreams Of people working together and getting shit done But it turns out that politics are more important than friendships And while you're making your plans, I'll be having fun But I believe that you can make a difference Without even trying, Without compromising And I've been proven right over and over again For the last 10 years But it turns out that politics are more important than fucking anything And I think that thinking gets in the way of getting shit done But it turns out that politics are more important than friendships So leave me out of your plans because they aren't any fun.
Hope you don't think this is over, if you did I'd be too sad to sing a note cause This was always at will I know it's scary but still It's the reason we're still around With all the shit that gets us down We wake up every day That's pretty cool, you gotta say I know I get so distracted, push stupid shit til I don't know why I'm pushing, but
I'm sick of hearing how green you are You won't change the world by driving a hybrid car It's too little, and it's too late I'm not impressed by your bumper sticker Your canvas tote bag doesn't explain your jeans That's not fair trade cotton, or is it just me It's too little and it's a joke And I'm not impressed by your shopping habits You're not gonna change the world Because you won't give anything up Do all you can as long as your lifestyle doesn't change Your milk is organic and your veal is free range It's too little and you're fooling yourself And I'm not impressed by your fucking posturing
20 years without a dad those fuckers ask 'what could you have had?' But some difference some half assed hustler would make right now 80 degrees at 6am bus is diverted for construction you're walking again Cause the next one won't come for over an hour Nobody's crying for you, maybe that's what they were trying to do so Look back, fuck that, it's been a million years since summertime Repent, get bent, you're never gonna see the sun again 50 bucks or they'll turn off the lights meds have gone up again so I guess tonight Read your kids bedtime stories from memory 30 years I've been around, some bad decisions but mostly it all went down Like every other white kid too smart for his own good
You don't seem that great to me But everyone else is an idiot in my eyes I don't know why I'm supposed to be impressed But compared to her it should be no surprise I can't imagine being with anyone else If something ever happens I better be happy with myself She's irreplaceable and I'd be so alone forever Don't even try to talk to me Your breath smells like beer and cigarettes And I can see the cracks in your makeup And your stupid clothes and your stupid hair make you easy to forget
You may not know by looking, I'm fed up I've been plotting and scheming so long I've had enough so Don't want no ladder to climb You jerks are wasting my time Don't wanna work in an office, there's too much competition Don't wanna be anyone's boss so I'm gonna be the alpha mailman Don't need anymore school my brain is filled up And those letters after your name are just so stuck up so Don't want no ladder to climb You fucks are wasting my time I'm gonna wear light blue and I'm gonna walk my route and I'll never ever be sad again, no way
I don't know when it happened but somehow I've been in charge for way too long now I'm older, I'm married, I'm working but I'm still way more punk than you Your youth is being wasted because it doesn't matter what you do So quit dying your hair and act like you care about what's going on Because you won't be young for long But it's not too late It's bigger than everything You should be embarrassed that the punkest guys in town are almost 30 So now it's your turn
Make sure to go out every night Make sure to order your high life just right Make sure to take the gears off your bike But don't ride anywhere south of ben white Practicality's not real big here Don't have time for it You're busy keeping it weird You think waterloo is just a tourist trap But I'm not looking for your mandolin crap In fact tonight I'm gonna go see the bats Not sure your hipster brain can handle that Complex concepts are new and different Don't have time for them You're busy keeping it weird
