lyrics

We can't duct tape pounds of trees to a fifty dollar car
Drive across the country just to stare at the stars
While we squat a national park that’s been snowed in for months
We rolled over some boulders sparked a blunt and ate lunch

We can't all have the same girls on the beach at night
While the other punks and jocks are all getting in their fights
So we baled on our friend Joe got arrested that day
He didn't have a ride home so he decided to stay

All summer, tan.
What a bummer, man

We burned tires on our bonfires
We burned brains and guitars on funeral pyres
We glowed green for days on end
We woke up and tried to do it all again

But we can't do that anymore
We’ve got kids now

So self serving and undeserving
So underwhelmed vessels unhelmed
Here's to the lies we love to lead
The invincible could never die or bleed.
And to mistakes we took them well
All you believers can take the crooked road straight to hell
We've no regrets just unhedged bets
The world’s a stage we're passing cues behind the sets

And this one's in the can

We burned tires on our bonfires
We burned brains and guitars on funeral pyres
We glowed green for days on end
We woke up and tried to do it all again

But we can't do that anymore
We’re all growed up now

We're gonna have to pay for it all
We're long gone past the sell by date
We always see the trees for the forest
And never fail to burn them down
In this town

We burned tires on our bonfires
We burned brains and guitars on funeral pyres
We glowed green for days on end
We woke up and tried to do it all again
We burned tires on our bonfires
We burned brains and guitars on funeral pyres
We glowed green for days on end
We woke up and tried to do it all again

But we can do that
Yes we can do that
Yes we can do that
Evermore
We burn fires
Evermore
We burn fires
Evermore
We burn fires
Evermore
