I've got these scars that I'm hiding from times that I should have died and,
I drink to remember them all.
But it's the ones I've inflicted, that keep me addicted,
And keep you admitted... this fall

So don't expect this to let up. Now get set up for the setup,
Just put up or shut up, or don't call.
Sister, I've seen things this summer that some say should stay safely stashed away,
And brother, you better bring a baseball bat or better,
Because broken bones and black eyes are a safe bet.

So just once, let's do something different, yea if it's not too much
Just once, let's do something different, yea if it's not too...if it's not too much

Conflicted turn signals were dead
A bold, bright beacon blinking red;
The answer that's been written since day one
The ride ruined in the recoil

Tipped and entrenched in the topsoil
And an impulse still searching for the gun
Faster feet flat to the floor mat
The tank topped up with the top back
Brake lights blotted out by the sun.

Sister, I've seen things this summer that some say should stay safely stashed away,
And brother, you better bring a baseball bat or better,
Because broken bones and black eyes are a safe bet.

So just once, let's do something different, yea if it's not too much
Just once, let's do something different, yea if it's not too...if it's not too much

I suffered through my potential, and didn't come back with anything substantial
I'm sorry, but I need saving... this horror, the perfect ending...

So just once, let's do something different, yea if it's not too much
Just once, let's do something different, yea if it's not too...if it's not too much

    General Commenti could go donw the list of songs and post on each one but ill save you the conveinance.
    five words.
    boys night out loves alliteration.
    look at each of their songs.
    take this one for example;
    -SISTER, i've SEEN things this SUMMER, that SOME SAY SHOULD STAY SAFELY SAHED away!gah!
    -and BROTHER, you BETTER BRING a BASEBALL BAT or BETTER.
    -a BOLD, BRIGHT BEACON BLINKING red... irony. red>blue>b
    -the RIDE RUINED in the RECOIL
    -FASTER, FETT FLAT to the FLOORMAT!
    -THE TANK TOPPED up with THE TOP back!

    its only obvious.
    i rest my case.
    oh oh and they're describing a car wreck just so ya know.
