lyrics

'Cause if I'm not playing shows at a half filled bar
or getting kicked out when I take it too far
I'm going back to school & I'm selling my guitar
Bye, boys, bury me in the backyard
& have fun
Such fun

So who's going in on a bag of bad blow?
Let's do it all before we even hit the show
Don't know about you but that's what I call rock 'n' roll
All the squares in the back all going "No, no, no, no, no, no"
Have fun
Such fun


I hope everyone here dies of natural causes
Or at least cancer or AIDS or the plague or some other disease
A car accident could even work
Just so long as it's nothing that'd ever give others some peace
& now I'm always nervous when I should be at ease
'Cause you never know the next time you're going to be saying "No, please"

& I just wish in the end that there was somebody else to blame
& I just wish he didn't believe that that's what he became
& I was doing my best to leave out all of the names
But it's the names & the faces that keep me from doing the same

I remember David calling me and asking if I heard something weird
I remember calling Leland 'cause I figured that he'd want to hear
I remember asking Jack, "Is what I just heard true?"
He texted back
"Yeah dude."
I remember joking with Noonan & every joke it turned to a riot
I remember Kat walking in, the room got so fucking quiet
I remember Walt wailing, "He was everybody [there's] best friend!"
I remember Pete going "I know" again and again
This'll happen again and again
