tonight 'll sit around pushing my shit down the drain, using a plunger and a clothespin while i wrangle wiht the chain. tonight i'll have potato chips and watch my favorite shows then watch some infomercials, then watch some tv show. tonight i'll have 9 or 10 beers tonight i'll talk on the telephone mindlessly until my ear burns from the feeling, from the strain of active nothing. tonight i'll avoid my hopes and fears. tonight i'll play shitloads of video games. tonight i'll decide too late to go get on the train and play out my stupid, misguided version of fun. tonight i'll get stupid fucking drunk and be an idiot, ashamed of what i've done. tonight i'll bang out another shitty song thats unsatisfying. its been so fucking long since i really felt any other way. tonight i'll crumple up these lyrics and throw them away. tonight i'll make promises i know i'll never keep. tonight ill talk on the telephone, wishing i had the energy to sleep. tonight i'll sit around and bitch. tonight i'll get hungry staring at the mustard in my empty fridge.
maybe tomorrow i won't smoke no cigarettes. maybe tomorrow i won't look back on toight with vomit and soaked regrets.
maybe tomorrow i won't drown myself in spite. maybe tomorrow i could try and tomorrow can be beter than tonight.
sleep well and dream. plastic pillow that give way to someplace green. sleep well and dream ...................................................................

    General CommentThis song doesn't seem like it's about having fun at all. To me it seems sad. Like the stupid empty things we do to fill time in our life. It's blatantly about wasting away. Let's face it though, we all spend most of our time doing nothing.

    General CommentI love the lullaby music at the beginning. I also read somewhere in an interview that Bren said it was about a night he and Matt Skiba spent together. *shrugs*

    General Commentthis song does not seem to be about simply having fun. Bunny has it right. Its about the stupid shit we do to occupy our days and nights, and how in the end it all feels useless.If you get drunk often, you will know what it is like to regret the stupid shit you have done the night before in a drunken state. It is defintiely more of a frustrated sad song, than a happy song.
