so we sit at this table
with our hands in our laps
and we have a few drinks
and we share a few laughs
but now those days have passed
and they're not coming back
it's a shame cus thats all that i had

and we'll sing out loud for hours
till a morning that we know we can't avoid
these nights are noteable and priceless
but i swear that every word i say
i'll mean until my dying day
it's a shame
when i wake i can't recall a thing
it's a shame
when i wake i can't recall a thing

so keep things quiet
till the rest of the street falls asleep
then we'll break out
show everyone just what we're made of
so young
let's abuse it all and have a little fun
i'll drink to that
let's drink to that

and i'll sing out loud for hours
till a morning that we know we cant avoid
these nights are noteable and priceless
and i swear that every word i say
i'll mean until my dying day
it's a shame
when i wake i cant recall a thing
it's a shame
when i wake i cant recall a thing

i've got some problems
but we've got ten dollars
that's enough to get us wasted
before the night is over
these past five days
i've been completely sober
but tonight i'm gettin ripped wide open
(x2)
but tonight i'm gettin ripped wide open

and we'll sing out loud for hours
till a morning that we know we can't avoid
these nights are noteable and priceless
and i swear that every word i say
i'll mean until my dying day
it's a shame
when i wake i can't recall a thing
it's a shame
when i wake i can't recall a thing

    General Comment'i've got some problems

    we've all been there right? when you scrape together any money you have to buy drink with the sole intention of getting wasted so you can forget about your feelings. This song is so poignant. It seems to make the point that with drinking- it can go two ways. You either have a fantastic time with all your friends, or you get really depressed and let your feelings show.

    General Commenti think this song has a really powerful title,
    in relation to the lyrics, if you really think about it.
    knights of the island counter?
    they ARE the knights of the island counter.
    get it? anyone? it really saddens me,
    reminds me of a graduation or something.
