It's dark, skate park
You're hanging with your friends again
I waited by the phone
You lose, I choose
To be all by myself
I'm better off alone

Skater boy you listen up
Cuz I am getting tired
Of your shenanigans

Emotional Griptape
Better get some today
And watch me skate away
Emotional Griptape
Better get yours today
And watch me skate away

We crash
road rash
but we won't get up again
this time it's for good
We burn
you turn
but I won't be there
I've tried all I could

Skaterboy you listen up
Cuz I am getting tired
Of your shenanigans


Your independent built to grind
won't skate on less then Abec 5's
push me to the back of your mind
You're sponsored by world industries
but you're still not the boy for me
get a life, get a personality and get some

(Chorus) 2X

    General Commentsure these lyrics rhyme n everything, but the story that they tell kinda pisses me off. ive never ever met a skater guy that would ever put skateboarding infront of anything important like a good relationship. skateboarders are probably the most caring, passionate people ive ever met. maybe the chick who wrote these lyrics was just a bitch and the guy didnt wanna waste his time on her.
    oh, by the way, he couldnt have been a very good skateboarder if he was sponsered by world industries. eesh.

    General CommentAnyone else think they're completely generic sounding?
    There's nothing about them that really stands out.
    Sure, the lyrics are a topic not yet quite mainstream. But after good old Avril, I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot more of this subject.
    Maybe someone can give me some background on them because as of now, to me, they only seem like a group of "different because it's the new cool" girls trying to get famous.
