LyricsEdit

If we don't watch the sun

It will rise

If we don't take our time

It's not wise


Putting posters up

For your band (Hey, we're playing ... come by)

Now I'll tear them down

With my hand


I didn't want to notice

Didn't know the gun was loaded

Didn't really know this

What kind of asshole drives a Lotus?


Come here and go get with me

I wanna see you Wednesday

Come on, come on, come over

Take it off your shoulder

Come on and pull me over

We gotta get to work now

Sliding it off your shoulder

As we're falling over


Oh, welcome to Japan!

Scuba-dancing!

Touchdown!


I didn't want to notice

Didn't know the gun was loaded

Didn't really know this

What kind of asshole drives a Lotus?

I didn't want to bore you

Didn't wanna pick up your shit for ya

I've been ready to do this

I'll be there


Come here and go get with me

I wanna see you Wednesday

Come on, come on, come over

Take it off your shoulder

Come on and pull me over

We gotta get to work now

Sliding it off your shoulder

As we're falling over


You did it alone

You did it for fun

You did it for everyone who's on the run

You're not just a friend

You'll be born again

We'll be in this race until the very end

He lives on the phone

He cheats on his clone

You'll never believe me 'til you're on your own


Comes in once a month

And he never leaves

He said he is broken

Yet he lives free

Didn't wanna floor ya

I didn't wanna be there for ya

Didn't wanna warn ya

I'll be there
