If I find my way back home,
I'll say "What am I doing here?"
We have made our camp
But not settled
Nothing can touch us here
We took the van one night
The three of us
Contraband, and our bikes
The city was left behind
Our own vacation, our own weekend,
Our own fear and loathing except on Cape Cod

At two in the morning when
My body's not attached to my head
We got on our bikes and rode
My legs like Jello when we rode that night
Hot livers and cold purse
The day was going everywhere in a hurry
Instead of nowhere fast
Take a pill
Do substances
Have a drink
Recreational drug use to drive golf balls

It's the most comfortable
And uncomfortable place
The discomfort is not in a bad way
No, not in a bad way
Don't make me go home
My own chocolate heart
Look at your scales, your head is on all wrong
I've got monsters on my brain
A towel on his head after jumping off the pier
Rama said I looked like a Kennedy
And Ryan's taking pictures
And flattery doesn't make sense in our state
We had to make our own fear and loathing on Cape Cod

    Favorite song on album. The melody put to the story of suburban stricken kids on vaction. "Take a pill. Do substances. Have a drink." The pileing up of random intoxicants, just like fear and loathing in Las Vegas, except on Cape Cod. I love it.

    I don't know about you guys, but my favorite part is "the three of us, contraband and our bikes" It reminds me of my friends b/c we like to drive around with our contraband. lol

    I find it quite ironic that one of the members used to teach.. first grade, I think? Now that's what kind of teacher I would have liked.
