the kids get drunk, the kids get sad-
they start telling stories that they didn't even know they had.
and me? i always leave early so this is just what i hear.
the kids in the back are just up in arms,
that saying the same thing won't get 'em any new reaction.
and we just need to stop now and change our rhythms to match up again.
i keep getting all of your letters and they look good in print.
that guy from work, he is a friend of mine.
he likes the 5/8 time, he likes a 5th a night. it makes him feel alright.
And i'd choose murder over heart attack.
i can't take the news, i can't face the fact that
this is all that i've really even ever had.
it's easier to just swim under the bridge
than to stand right up and walk over it.
and i rolled over and looked straight up,
and saw there was no bridge and that water dried right up.
and we just need to stop now and change our rhythms to match up again.
i keep getting all of your letters and they look good in print.
i keep getting all of your letters and they look good in print.
and we just need to stop now and change our rhythms to match up again.
'cause i keep getting all of your letters and they look good in print.
i keep getting all of your letters and they look good in print.

    General Comment"I choose murder over heart attack" is probably a reference to the Old '97s song "Murder (or Heart Attack)." Guitarist Adam Aymore is a fan of the '97s.
