Please tell me why we couldn't stay
Don't let this feeling ever go away
Let this memory forever be inside of me
Through every hour of every day
It's with the company of these friends
That we drove on through the night
Behind the wheel of Armageddon
We're gonna force ourselves to live
Thankful it's hurt more than we've ever felt
It's just our means to an end

And honestly we were armed with our best intentions
Maybe those intentions alone
are just enough to get us anywhere but here
In the middle of america
Six cylinders will take us further than any president
The same promises that we forgot the last time
There's no difference between staying and a bullet in the head
Maybe it's gonna come from the radio
Or the next eight hour day
Driving to the next town
A collect call home to your best friend
We are the company we keep
We could live off of dumpsters if we have to
Sell our blood by the pint to make rent
This kind of dignity doesn't come easy
But you'll never find it for sale

    General Commentblueintheface has the general idea right. The song is for some part about their old van and then the other part about how they all survived a crash in that van unscathed. The actual title is "We did it all for 'Don". 'Don, with the now-inserted apostrophe, refers to Armageddon, the name of their van, which was totaled by an unattentive truck driver.

    It's just a fun song more than anything about how it doesn't matter what happens, as long as people stick together with their friends, things will be alright.
