When I first set out to write a record
My outlook was positive
I'd sing about my summer
And the people that I spent it with

But the last four months have shown me
There's a trade-off to be made
Now I'm not so fucking chipper
Like this is never gonna be the same

But hey, we take it on the chin when they say
That we don't, we don't, we don't deserve
Anything from anyone

See, if I'm writing to affect your temperate lives
Then I guess I'm sacrificing mine
I watch the planes that change the skyline
And hope that death found those who believed it was right

Hey, we take it on the chin when they say
That we don't, we don't, we don't deserve
Anything from anyone

Hey, we take it on the chin when they say
That we don't, we don't, we don't deserve
Anything from anyone

Well, it's you who's affecting I
And I'll still sing about my summer
But it's you who's affecting I
So I'll still sing about it
But it's you who's affecting I
So I'll still sing about my summer
And it's you who's affecting I
And I'll still sing about it

But hey, we take it on the chin when they say
That we don't, we don't, we don't deserve
Anything from anyone
