Jack says he loves the winter here
Cause these are days when everyone's as miserable as him
Josh says it smells like cheap beer and loathing here
It could be the van but it's probably just his breath
Max dropped out of college
He likes to say he finished
He's working back home with his dad
He and Kevin got matching tatoos of their initials
Three x's down their legs
Well I've got like minded dudes in Detroit or Vancouver
Newport, Boca, and Brum
I don't know where I am but I know where I came from

So everyone moved in with their girlfriends
In one bedroom apartments in the town that we grew up in
And all my friends are in bar bands
I don't know how it happened
I hope it pays the rent
And still there's some days
When I don't think that we'll ever see Dave again

Justin's working three jobs just to stay ahead
Spiro lied about his major
But it's working out for him
Nick and Richie got a place together by the train station
I spent twenty two years just wading through bullshit
Hey, it's worked so far
I don't know why I'm here, but I know who my friends are

So everyone moved in with their girlfriends
Who want better apartments in the town that we grew up in
And all my friends are in bar bands
I don't know how it happened
I hope it pays the rent
And still there's some days
When I don't think that we'll ever see Dave again

I'm not sad anymore
I'm just tired of this place
If this year would just end
I think we'd all be okay
We moved on again
We're not wasting way
