i've got the scars that i'm hiding
from times that i should have died and
a drink to remember them all
but it's the ones i've inflicted
that keep me addicted
and keep you admitted this fall
so don't expect this to let up
now get set up for the setup
just put up or shut up or don't call

sister, i've seen things this summer some say should stay safely stashed away
and brother, you better bring a baseball bat or better
because broken bones and black eyes are a safe bet

so, just once let's do something different
if it's not too much
just once let's do something different
if it's not too, if it's not too much

conflicting turn signals - we're dead
a bold, bright beacon blinking red
the answer that's been written since day one
the ride ruined in the recoil
tipped and entrenched in the topsoil
an impulse still searching for the gun
faster, feet flat to the floor mat
the tank topped up with the top back
brake lights blotted out by the sun

sister, i've seen things this summer some say should stay safely stashed away
and brother, you better bring a baseball bat or better
because broken bones and black eyes are a safe bet

so, just once let's do something different
if it's not too much
just once let's do something different
if it's not too, if it's not too much

i've suffered through my potential
and didn't come back with anything substantial
i'm sorry, but i need saving
this horror is the perfect ending

just once
so, just once let's do something different
if it's not too much
just once let's do something different
if it's not too, if it's not too much
if it's not too, if it's not too much

    General CommentThier were so many times when this relationship seemed destined to crash and burn. Where he had failed her/ SO many ties the relationship had dies before. He just needs it to end for good.

    General Commenti could go donw the list of songs and post on each one but ill save you the conveinance.
    five words.
    boys night out loves alliteration.
    look at each of their songs.
    take this one for example;
    -SISTER, i've SEEN things this SUMMER, that SOME SAY SHOULD STAY SAFELY SAHED away!gah!
    -and BROTHER, you BETTER BRING a BASEBALL BAT or BETTER.
    -a BOLD, BRIGHT BEACON BLINKING red... irony. red>blue>b
    -the RIDE RUINED in the RECOIL
    -FASTER, FETT FLAT to the FLOORMAT!
    -THE TANK TOPPED up with THE TOP back!

    its only obvious.
    i rest my case.
    oh oh and they're describing a car wreck just so ya know.
