"Goodbye Song" as written by and Kimya Dawson Adam Green....
Packing my bags
Time is a drag
Smell myself
To make sure I'm still there

I'm alone in the park
(Say goodbye)
With the Saber Tooth Shark
(I won't cry)
And every pretty girl that broke my heart
(Old friend, see you again)

Receding lines
(I know)
Broken dimes
(Must go)
Who's gonna meet their match this time
(See red, sore head)

The maker's at home
(Alone here)
Smoking a bone
(Alone there)
I'm on my own, I'm on my own
(I'm alone everywhere)

These nightmares
(Say goodbye)
Nightmares
(I won't cry)
With the repeating cast of characters
(Old friend, see you again)

I don't wanna talk
(So afraid)
When my thoughts are true
(Back in the day)
I hate myself when I think like you
(Tag along, same song)

'Cause it's over
(Bazooka Joe)
It's over
(Punk show)
It's ancient, it's so old
(Front row, demo)

It's ancient
(3000 miles)
It's ancient
(New styles)

It's so old, let's call the whole thing
(When in Rome, go home)
Off
(Say goodbye, I won't cry, old friend)

Let's call the whole thing
(See you again)
Off
(Say goodbye, I won't cry, old friend)

See you again, say goodbye
I won't cry, old friend
I'll see you again

    Packing my bags
    Time is a drag
    Smell myself to make sure I'm still there
    I'm alone in the park (Say goodbye)
    With the saber-tooth shark (I won't cry)
    And every pretty girl that broke my heart (Old friend, see you again)
    Receding lines (I know)
    Broken dimes (Must go)
    Who's gonna meet their match this time (See red, sore head)
    The maker's at home (Alone here)
    Smoking a bone (Alone there)
    I'm on my own, I'm on my own (I'm alone everywhere)
    These nightmares (Say goodbye)
    Nightmares (I won't cry)
    With the repeating cast of characters (Old friend, see you again)
    I don't wanna talk (So afraid)
    When my thoughts are true (Back in the day)
    I hate myself when I think like you (Tag along, same song)

    (See you again)

    (Say goodbye
    I won't cry
    Old friend
    I'll see you again)

    General Commentwoo-hoo! I got seriously boggled and eventually gave up in trying decipher the two. My mind can rest at ease now. Thank you, you are a star.

    General CommentNo, he actually says smoking a bone as in getting high. Smoking a bone is a slang term for smoking a bowl; the only reason it exists is because they is so much different weed slang throughout the world so there is a good chunk of the population that says smoking a bone instead of smoking a bowl. If you listen to the song, he quite clearly says bone, but he means the same thing.
