lyrics

We are people you should know
because we always know what's best,
and better men than you have died
trying to figure out what's next,
so we put the guesswork to rest.

Play with bands everybody knows,
dear god there are rules you know.
First the 7, then the 12 follows,
dear god there are rules you know.
Maybe tour, homecoming show,
then it's quick back on the road,
then give up (can't pay back the loans),
start a blog, turn up your nose.

You can fumble in the dark
but you'll only waste your time.
Look at how we got this far and stand in line.
Wipe that smile off your face, don't you know that
you're in the wrong place?

Got these earplugs in, feet pressed to the floor,
dusty vinyl couch and the old 64,
shouting one-line jokes, noise ceiling to floor,
four grown men giving up on being adored.

YOU SHOULD MAKE MISTAKES.

Singing songs with your friends alone,
pressing records that you'd want to own.
Singing songs with your friends alone,
what secrets could your basement hold?

Singing songs with your friends alone,
how'd you do it all on your own?
Singing songs with your friends alone,
what secrets could your basement hold?
