Don't mind when it happens
No problem when I am saying it
But when I lose my mind, kick my behind
'Cause I hate when my mind keeps replaying it

I'm not bragging and I'm not proud
I hang around wit ha drunken crowd
We are happy, that I can say
And until we're not, I kid you not, we're gonna stay that way

My life was trying to settle down...
Johnny Vegas!
Drinkin' the other day
I said I loved you, you turned away
Maybe the drinking made me cry
But I'm a happy, very happy, very happy guy

Sometimes when I am playing
I never watch what I am saying
Sometimes I lose my head
I lose my head and things get said I never should have said

Sometimes I get hosued
I get housed, I get accused and shoot off my mouth
Sometimes I kick it out and I don't know what I'm talkin' about
You know, I've made mistakes, I've had my ups and downs
My ins and outs, my share of bad breaks
But when it's all been said and done
I raise my beer and I swear God it's been fun...

    It's a different version of "Drunks and Children" which they released on Devils Night Out. And these are the correct lyrics:

    Don't mind when it happens no problem when I am saying it but when I lose my mind, kick my behind because I hate when my mind keeps replaying it I'm not bragging and I'm not proud I hang around with a drunken crowd we are happy, that I can say and until we're not I kid you not, we're gonna stay that way my life would start to settle down... Johnny! then you came along and you turned it upside down... Vegas! drunks and children they always tell the truth... Johnny! but I'm sober and older and could've held on to... My Youth! drinkin' the other day I said I loved you, you turned away maybe the drinking, made me cry but I'm a happy, very happy, very happy guy drunks and children they tell the truth and that's what I am a drunken youth and when I'm drinking I don't know why but I'm a happy, very happy, very happy guy sometimes when I am playing I never watch what I am saying sometimes I lose my head I lose my head and things get said I never should have said sometimes I get housed housed soused and shoot off my mouth and sometimes I kick it out, and I don't know what I'm talkin' about I don't know what I'm talking about you know, I've made mistakes, I've had my ups and downs my ins and outs, my share of bad breaks but when it's all been said and done I raise my beer and I swear God it's been fun... good God oh my God good God good God good God good God God its been fun!

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
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.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
