While we were getting up
And breaking down
And building it up again
You were mixing weak drinks
For weeknight sleep
And holding up the wall
With your new friends

Look, I said it was cool
Now the air seems fresher on my side of the room
Fuck conversations, it’s just time wasted
This is me saying that it’s cool

What else is there for me to do?
Sit back and count how many dollar drafts
It takes for you to forget we’re on our own?
Before you slide back into Johnny Black
I got some things on tap here just for you

Just to let you know
On the off change we both explode
I don’t regret a single day I spent with you
But what’s a few lies for an old friend?
What’s a few goodnights you’ll never say again?
Just to let you know, I took a chance on you

But you would never do the same
So starstuck you went and fucked things up again
Now take your undercover friends
And your newfound love for trends
And leave us alone as when you came

It seems to me the only real surprises are tragedies
Who thought we’d be here one year later
At a wake for your integrity

I’ll cover sparks just to save the dark
And hit six-strings so hard
We break apart the sound
I don’t fucking need anyone
That doesn’t change the fact
That I always liked having you around

Oh what a strange turn of events
While we were down on blowing up
And doing it all over again
You were getting high and breaking out And living it up with your new friends
Look, I said it was cool
And I said what I meant

    General CommentI interpert this song as friends and one friend gets into the music scene, starts a band without the other friend and is 'starstruck'. With this, the friend makes new friends and gets into new things. The friend left behind feels left out and is saying "Yeah, Cool" when he really feels cheated and left out and is missing his friend deep down.
