Oh I think I'm going to work construction
Just to make something of myself
I cant live off these childhood trophies
On my shelf

And I wanna get my hands dirty
Wanna feel a burning in my legs
I want more than a receipt for what I paid

Cause everybody loves something new
Cause you can open it and plug it in
And it feels like a good night's sleep
Like the girl you like paid you a compliment

Oh but they can keep the change
And they can keep 'em coming
They can talk to who's listening
Cause I'm still looking for something a little more permanent

I am not a poet
Show me the easy way and I'll do it
No one could ever say that I've been trying way too hard
Cause everything that I have ever owned
Got dusty and old
So I threw it out just to make myself some room

I'm like everybody I love something new
Cause you can open it and plug it in
And it feels like a good night's sleep
Like the girl you like paid you a compliment

Oh but they can keep the change
And they can keep 'em coming
They can talk to who's listening
Cause I'm still looking for something that I can die with

If my luck is running out please don't let it be so with love
Its been a long year but I'm not ready to give up
Cause even if I lay ten million bricks
And they break through the summer haze
Someone will come around and bulldoze 'em down someday

Because everybody loves something new
You get rid of what came before
And it feels like a long hot shower
Like getting in your bed when the sheets are warm
Oh but they can keep destruction
And they can keep em coming
And I won't be listening
Because I found something a little more permanent
Yes I found someone that I can die with
