understanding run right through my veins never ending sacrifice we made
remember when we sat in golden gate park in the presence of an officer which probably wasn't very
smart twenty going on twenty-one try not to act so young but where's the fun in trying chose the
road we're on and there's no turning back sitting on the steps in st. mark's in the presence of an
officer which probably wasn't very smart. s

    General Commenti really like this song, short lyrics but songs that are too long sometimes get boring!

    General CommentThis is just one of those songs where you can picture the lyrics. I find that the shorter HRC songs are the most meaningful and the best. They exceed the short lived greatness of their catchier songs.

    General CommentI just saw them at the TLA in March and they played this song after a fan begged them, Andy said " Don't be pissed if I fuck this up". It was incredible! Was anyone else there?

    General Commentfuckin christ they are awesome.

    i just cant help but see the weed metaphors in so many of their songs, this one is no different. i don't know the meaning, just seems like they got caught smoking. maybe that's in itself a metaphor for being caught between teenager and full blown adult.

    just reading to much into it, but seriously great song
