"Commerce, Tx" as written by and Kweller....
I got a bad flavor
I got dirty clothes
I got a strange neighbor
Who doesn't have curtains on her windows

I got a pet hedgehog
Drinkin' Jaeger all day
You got me crate combo and a baby on the way
But it's ok

It's gonna take a lot of time
Before i can cross that finish line
And when i can't take the fall
I really want to make that call

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ah ah ah

That's my new best friend
Ann disaster's her name
We're passin' out on the carpet
And our attributes are the same

It's the slacker lifestyle
That we do so well
Bills are due on Monday
I'm oblivious, can't you tell

It's gonna take a lot of time
Before i can cross that finish line
And when i can't take the fall
I really want to make that call

My brain is super-fried
It involves pain to look inside

It's gonna take a lot of time
Before i can cross that finish line
And when i can't take the fall
I really want to make that call

    General CommentThis song isn't one of my favorites or anything, but seeing as no ones commented I think I will.
    This song personaly makes me think about times in my life when I havn't felt strong enough to move along by myself and have had to get someones help, I get that mostly from the chorus, but yea, thats what I get. Its a pretty nice sounding song..

    General Commenthmm, a lot of typos here. but the song still rocks.

    my favourite line is "it's the slacker lifestyle; that we do so well". i like saying it in conversation for kicks.

    General Comment"that’s my new best friend
    ann desaster’s her name
    we’re passin’ out on the carpet and our atributes are the same"

    Whenever I listen to this song I always end up screaming this part and it makes me feel so freaking alive! It pretty much encompasses my feeling about drinking, friends, life, and everything right there in those 3 lines.

    General Commenti love this song. i feel like it is about ben himself. like, all of his lyrics seem to talk about his life and like what he's going through but this one seems like about how he like dropped out of high school and stuff.
