"Pretty Never Hurts" as written by Blake Smith and Richard M. Ness....
I was kickin' ass, like a dial tone
The back seat was in shreds, I was all alone
You can be hands, in hot pursuit of ghosts
The secret life in ?, you get felt up the most

I can never go far 'til I get off, I can never get far

Pretty never hurts if you know what I mean
The ? kill but they can't catch me
Believe the hype cause I'm so bright and you're my type
Pretty never hurts if you know what I mean

The empty mailbox on the ?
All the friends have fled, but the cinnamon stays
Will I see you there, when I come up for air
In the Camaro, then I'll be all I know

I can never go far 'til I get off, I can never get far

Pretty never hurts if you know what I mean
The ? kill but they can't catch me
Believe the hype cause I'm so bright and you're my type
Pretty never hurts if you know what I mean

I was kickin' ass like a dial tone
The other beatles died, I was all alone

It never gets too far 'til I get off, it never gets too far

Pretty never hurts if you know what I mean
The ? kill but they can't catch me
Believe the hype cause I'm so bright and you're my type
Pretty never hurts if you know what I mean

    General CommentI has halp :) For the ones with question marks.

    "I was kickin' ass, like a dial tone
    The back seat was in shreds, I was all alone
    You can be MY hands, in hot pursuit of ghosts
    The secret life in PANTS, you get felt up the most

    I can never go far 'til I get off, I can never get far

    Pretty never hurts if you know what I mean
    The BED SPINS killED but they can't catch me
    Believe the hype cause I'm so bright and you're my type
    Pretty never hurts if you know what I mean

    The empty mailbox on the DOWNEST DAYS
    All the friends have fled, but the SENTIMENT stays
    Will I see you there, when I come up for air
    In the Camaro, LET IT be all I know

    I can never go far 'til I get off, I can never get far

    Pretty never hurts if you know what I mean
    The BED SPINS killed but they can't catch me
    Believe the hype cause I'm so bright and you're my type
    Pretty never hurts if you know what I mean

    I was kickin' ass like a dial tone
    The other Beatles died, I was all alone

    It never gets too far 'til I get off, it never gets too far

    Pretty never hurts if you know what I mean
    The BED SPINS killed but they can't catch me
    Believe the hype cause I'm so bright and you're my type
    Pretty never hurts if you know what I mean \

    Try those out, hopefully they're right, I'm not picking on you as there are no real lyrics anywhere. As far as the meaning, it's vaguely a sexually suggestive songs. Though I will say it applied to all their songs, none of them really mean a lot lol. The guys really did record When Shove Goes Back to Push in a, ah, less than sober state of mind we'll say. It was in an old ass interview I read once...can't remember what magazine it was, as I have Spin, RS, ChartAttack, Blender, AND Alternative Press. But Blake said himself that if the lyrics seemed "obtuse" at times, that was why. Nonsensicalness or not, its an amazing record.
