With the cops on your lips it's a holy routine
If you'd stop all your trips you could see what I mean
I forgot not to slip 'bout you're under 18
You had it in your hands

Leave it up to me
It's a known disease
Keep it in your fleece
Don't worry about the custom police, don't
I'll tell you just how good it can be, this lazy summer

But you got no relief from the pain in your head
And it's hollow and greased and it says that you're dead
But you make fun and tease and the things that you said
They always stab your back
And I've been holding out for love ever since I had a heart

    General Commentyea wow i love this song it like has this happy feel to it but at the end he says 'And I've been holding out for love ever since I had a heart' so i think there is a sence of depression also when they say 'They always stab your back'

    General CommentI am thinking it is just about a couple in the summer where everything is layed back and the little things that happen between them such as "If you'd stop all your trips you could see what I mean
    " and "I'll tell you just how good it can be, this lazy summer". i think the 88 is an amazing band and this is a reallly good song.

    General Commentthis song reminds me of driving on a sunny day, near the ocean. i always listen to this song when im driving anywhere in the summer, because i never do anything importnant. it really takes the stress out of everyday things, work, school, ect.
