Light the match burn the flower
Leave behind all the wrong why be
Sad when happiness can be bought for
A little more than free modern
Day prohibition are we men are
We children at what age can I
Choose how to live the only real
Drug problem is scoring real
Good drugs, haven't we learned our lesson
The corner store has the finest scotch
But who's got uncut powder we
Just want what is ours dignity
If god created plants and buds
That I find and abuse then
Who the fuck are you to
Judge me?

    heck yeah it makes a lot of sense. My entire political philosophy can pretty much be summed up by the lines, "Are we men, are we children at what age can I choose how to live?" That is brilliant. I have two corrections though. The lyric is "finer" scotch not "finest." Also he says "bud" not "burr." okay.

    The song is about drug legalization. I think it has a beautiful melody and the lyrcis are awesome.

    "The only real drug problem is scoring real good drugs Haven't we Learned our lesson?"

    I love that part.

    "The corner store sells finer Scotch But who's got uncut powder."

    Alcohol is just as much a drug as anything else. I don't personally use drugs or condone the use of drugs per se, but what a great point... Alcohol causes more deaths than most if not all other drugs, yet it's a mainstay in western culture?! Anyway, heh, I also don't really say that people shouldn't drink, my point is though -- if i can drink why can't I buy some methamphetamine or something at the store? It's not any worse for me...

    Wow, listened to this song SO many times, i love it and i knew the message it was trying to put across, but when you read it normally it makes perfect sense. NOFX at their best telling it how it is, i must say i dont do drugs but i can see their point and its hard to argue against when you look at it like they have.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
