8 years playing guitars together,
playing bars, whatever,
getting lost in bad weather
having nearly lost the fun
you turned up "Born To Run"
writing long postcards to
mothers with sons in the ER
and I moved into the VR
and somewhere, man in that passenger van
has left you a curse
'cuz one man's limo is another man's hearse
uhhh
uhhh

Talking about smoking and the joys of pain
he shit his pants, and champagne,
and you brought an old professor over for Halloween
who shoved a handgun down his pants and climbed a tree
screaming "cunt", and shot his dick off
and I can't decide which is worse
'cuz one man's limo is another man's hearse
uhhh
uhhh

taking on state lines, picking up parking fines
fathers driving us on our first tour 'cuz we can't drive
playing the same venue as Q and Not U,
then watching two lesbians tongue on a mechanical bull
it got kind of surreal, I guess that things had gotten worse
'cuz one man's limo is another man's hearse
uhhh
uhhh

there's nothing more gorgeous
or covered, I have found
than the northern part of this state at sundown
there's nothing more gorgeous
or covered, I have found
than the southern part of this state at sundown
there's nothing more gorgeous
or covered, I have found
than the eastern part of this state at sundown
there's nothing more gorgeous
or covered, I have found
than the western part of this state right now

    General Comment8 years playing guitars together,
    playing bars, whatever,
    getting lost in bad weather
    having nearly lost the funds
    you turned aboard to run
    writing long postcards to
    mothers and sons in the ER
    and I moved into the VR
    and somewhere, man in that passenger van
    has left you a curse
    'cuz one man's limo is another man's hearse
    uhhh
    uhhh

    Talking about smoking and the joys of pain
    he shit his pants, and champagne,
    and you brought an old professor over for Halloween
    shoved a handgun down his pants and climbed a tree
    screaming "cunt", and shot his dick off
    and I can't decide which is worse
    'cuz one man's limo is another man's hearse
    uhhh
    uhhh

    thinking of state lines, thinking of parking fines
    fathers driving us on our first tour 'cuz we can't drive
    playing the same venue as Q and Not U,
    then watching two lesbians tunnel a mechanical bull
    it got kind of surreal, I guess that things had gotten worse
    'cuz one man's limo is another man's hearse
    uhhh
    uhhh

    there's nothing more gorgeous
    or covered, I have found
    than the northern part of this state at sundown
    there's nothing more gorgeous
    or covered, I have found
    than the southern part of this state at sundown
    there's nothing more gorgeous
    or covered, I have found
    than the eastern part of this state at sundown
    or covered, I have found
    than the western part of this state at sundown

    Lyric CorrectionI have some different interpretations, changes to lines starting with *:

    8 years playing guitars together,
    playing bars, whatever,
    getting lost in bad weather
    *having nearly lost the fun
    *you turned up 'Born To Run'
    writing long postcards to
    *mothers with sons in the ER
    and I moved into the VR
    and somewhere, man in that passenger van
    has left your curse
    'cuz one man's limo is another man's hearse
    uhhh
    uhhh

    Talking about smoking and the joys of pain
    he shit his pants, and champagne,
    and you brought an old professor over for Halloween
    *Who shoved a handgun down his pants and climbed a tree
    *screaming "cunt", then shot his dick off
    and I can't decide which is worse
    'cuz one man's limo is another man's hearse
    uhhh
    uhhh

    *Taking on state lines, picking up parking fines

    Lyric CorrectionSome of these are wrong.

    8 years playing guitars together.
    Playing bars wherever.
    Getting lost in bad weather.
    Having nearly lost the fun.
    You turned up “Born to run.”
    Writing long postcards to mothers with sons in the ER.
    I moved into the VR.
    And somewhere, man in that passenger van is left your curse
    because one man’s limo is another man’s hearse.

    Talking about smoking and the joys of pain.
    He shit his pants in Champaign
    and you brought an old professor over for Halloween,
    who shoved a handgun down his pants
    and climbed a tree screaming “cunt”
    Then shot his dick off.
    And I can’t describe which is worse
    because one man’s limo is another man’s hearse.

    Picking on state lines, picking up parking fines,
    Father’s driving us on our first tour because we can’t drive;
    playing the same venue as Q and Not U
    then watching 2 Lesbians tongue on a mechanical bull.
    It got kind of surreal. I guess that things had gotten worse.
    But one man’s Limo is another man’s hearse.

    There is nothing more gorgeous or covered I have found,
    than the Northern part of the state at sundown.
    There is nothing more gorgeous or covered I have found,
    than the Southern part of the state at sundown.
    There is nothing more gorgeous or covered I have found,
    than the Eastern part of the state at sundown.
    There is nothing more gorgeous or covered I have found,
    than the Western part of the state at right now.
