"Reckless Abandon" as written by and Tom/hoppus De Longe....
On and on, reckless abandon
Something's wrong
This is gonna shock them
Nothing to hold on to
We'll use this song
To lead you on

I learned a lot today
Not sure if I'll get laid and
Not sure if I'll fail or pass
Kissed every girl in class
Everybody would waste it all
To have a summer that they could call
A memory that's full of fun
Fucked up when it's all done

On and on, reckless abandon
Something's wrong
This is gonna shock them
Nothing to hold on to
We'll use this song
To lead you on
And break the truth
With more bad news
We left a scar
Size extra large

Sip a drink of the alcohol
End up kneeling in bathroom stalls
Eyes are red and my movements slow
Too high, got vertigo

He took a shit in the bathroom tub
And fed the dog brownie drugs
Tried hard not to get caught
He fucked a chick in the parking lot

On and on, reckless abandon
Something's wrong
This is gonna shock them
Nothing to hold on to
We'll use this song
To lead you on
And break the truth
With more bad news
We left a scar
Size extra large

Break a window and bust a wall
Making fun of your friend's mom
Turn the music up way too loud
Charge the pizza to the house
Everybody would waste it all
To have a summer that they could call
A memory that's full of fun
Fucked up when it's all done

On and on, reckless abandon
Something's wrong
This is gonna shock them
Nothing to hold on to
We'll use this song
To lead you on
And break the truth
With more bad news
We left a scar
Size extra large

    General CommentI think that this is the best song off of their CD Take Of Your Pants And Jacket! If you never heard of it downlaod it like right now. When I saw them in concert for the 4th time, they let the crowd sing the begining! It totally rocked ass!;)

    General CommentThis is something that should be played for all my friends out there, because they don't know how to have a good time and get fucked up enough to where there just chillin' instead, they like to black out and go to mental insitutions! yay, what fun!
