There's no sense in me staying
Then why does it matter?
(It doesn't matter, it never matters)
I hope someday soon maybe we'll finish this chapter
(I can't ever finish this chapter)

And now at this moment I don't know what else to think
There's no sense in me saying
"I guess I still miss you"

So now I need names and faces
Examine the suspects
Get the D.A here now

You'll tell everyone
That it's so much fun
Say to all my friends
It never ends
While we're driving through
All the alley ways
We picked up some happiness on the way

I'll tell everyone
That it's so much fun
Say to all your friends
It never ends
While we're driving through
All the alley ways
I picked up some happiness on the way

Just because you move your hips
Doesn't mean that you exist
Just because you move your lips
Doesn't mean that you exist
Can we just take
A fucking break
Cause I feel like I have got nothing left
Nothing left

I guess I still miss you
Oh well, it's me and you
What else should we do?
When talking is for functioning people

I guess I still miss you
But talking is for functioning people
I guess I still miss you

You always said
We'd win the lottery someday
So I wouldn't have to go away
I should have known
That I had it all along
But I didn't know till you were gone

Let's see you
Function now
Touch your nose
Jump around

Footprints, in God we trust
Jes-you, Jes-Me Jesus
Pick up ten sac orange crush
Two bottles, cups, and blunts
What do scorned lovers do?
Dancing with all my crew
Drink and drive life away
Gamble with everyday

Just because you move your hips
Doesn't mean that you exist
Just because you move your lips
Doesn't mean that you exist
Can we just take
A fucking break
Cause I feel like I have got nothing left
Nothing left

I guess I still miss you
Oh well, it's me and you
What else should we do?
When talking is for functioning people

I guess I still miss you
But talking is for functioning people
I guess I still miss you

You always said
We'd win the lottery someday
So I wouldn't have to go away
I should have known
That I had it all along
But I didn't know till you were gone

You always said
We'd win the lottery someday
So I wouldn't have to go away

You always said
We'd win the lottery someday
So I wouldn't have to go away

    General Commentcan't help you with the screams, good job with the rest though, it seems right when i scanned over it.
    but i'd just like to say i love this song.
    definatly a favourite off the new album.
    i wish lyrics for the other songs would go up though.

    General Commenti don't think its completely right, but the first scream part i think is

    "somehow i need this in faces examine the suspects get to figuring out"

    don't feel like its %100 though

    second scream part starts with

    "let's see you, function now, touch your nose, jump around"

    still figuring the rest of the second part though, so hope this was helpful so far

    General Commentsecond scream part

    "let's see you, function now, touch your nose, jump around"

    ----don't know----
    she still gives me good times
    ----don't know----
    ----don't know----
    two bottles plus a blunt
    what do sour lemons do?

    drinking my life away
    gamble with everything

    General CommentYeah, they sound about right. I'll wait till I have the whole part until I update it, though.

    General CommentI think this is about the promises made during a relationship that failed coming back to bite a dude in the ass. Some aspect of hope.
