Do you miss walking down Geary St. with your mom,
Going to buy some Upper Playground T-shirts?
We don’t even get street cred for wearing that shit no more.
Taking your morning piss at the MUNI bus stop
Because your roommate’s passed out in the shower again

Do you sit tonguing the root pulled fresh
To make room for your new acrylic front tooth,
Wishing you could be at a third grade barbeque?
Do you get hives from sporting short-shorts in unkempt grass,
Feel bad about missing your last french class
Or key every car with a personalized license plate?

Well I do

Another calcium deposit,
Another sign that I should take care of myself (myself)
I'll be honest man,
My dreams ain’t what they used to be
So after we have practice, I'll go sit up in the attic
And rehearse the line I've claimed as mine:
"Life is over when we say it is"

    General CommentThe lyrics for this one are probably really off, so sorry. But probably my favourite; I love the title. Ha, brings back so many elementary/middle school memories of SSR.
