"Hallie and Henry" as written by and Eric Elbogen....
Hallie says that she wants to stay up 'til the sun
"Let's make friends with the cool kids just this once," she says
And doesn't blink at all
"Let's go non-ego id, don capes like we're kids."
But that Henry, he's such a hater and he wishes she'd just stay bored as him.

But now Hallie's gonna pop unless that Henry learns to stop
With all his double dirty downer looking on.
It's like he's living in a rock
Or like he's mopping up the floor with his head while the mop watches on.

"Let's go faster than light, let's go back to the start, become what we hate with the flood lights on, go summon the dead and build fires in the yard."
But what looks good on paper, looks good on paper.
But this one looks like the other hair-brained schemes of yours.

But now Hallie's gonna pop unless that Henry learns to stop
With all his double dirty downer looking on.
It's like he's living in a rock
Or like he's mopping up the floor with his head while the mop watches on.

But now Hallie's gonna pop unless that Henry learns to stop
With all his double dirty downer looking on.
It's like he's living in a rock
Or like he's mopping up the floor with his head while the mop watches on.

    General CommentI think it's about breaking out of your shell and trying to expand your horizons. Sometimes your friends are comfortable where they are though, and drag you around with them.
