Every day's a competition
The guy I work for is crazy
Blew out his back lifting a V8 engine by himself
"And still I'd take you in any competition
Boy I'm twice your age and I'd take you still"

Chorus
But you don't want to work for your money
You don't want to pay your own bills
Just crank your music and stare at the ceiling
Take out your aggression on the hill

Last summer was the sandy haired girl selling grilled cheese in the parking lot
Try it with Tabasco it's killer and it's only five extra cents
So you rolled for a while in the back of her bus
And you stole her skeleton stickers
And left the tour and moved in with me and you never did the dishes

Your mom called your mobile from the hot tub in the basement you grew up in
John's got a job selling celebrity's houses on the island
And your dad says you'd better get back here when the lifts are closed
And learn some things from your brother

Chorus
But you don't want to learn from your brother
And you don't want to pay your own bills
Just crank your music and stare at the ceiling
Take out your aggression on the hills

You don't understand and you never will

Joe you know you left without paying your half of the heating bill
Chill out man I'll send you a check when I get home if I ever do
'Cuz man Nebraska's the longest damn state in the union
And only Iowa to look forward to

That's the last anyone heard from you
'Til the ranger found an empty body
With your board and backpack
Halfway up the mountain
Way up in Idaho
