6/8

Album: California (2017)
  • You live in a world I cannot believe
    You create a world I don't want to see
    And your forest's a stand of dead trees lost in the night
    Did you ever think you'd live down the past
    You just want to tie yourself to the mast
    All your nightmares have come to at last
    At least in your mind

    Learn to swim in rushing rivers
    Breaking on the shore
    Make your peace with broken streets
    Your face turned towards the storm

    This shitty guitar needs some personality
    This shitty song needs some personality

    Your hollow accusations no one ever hears
    Your wounded senses of pride, a guilty souvenir
    All your protests and vacant excuses ring insincere
    I just want to find a car to overturn
    I just want to light a fire to watch it burn
    Now we're past the point of no return and no one is here

    Learn to swim in rushing rivers
    Breaking on the shore
    Make your peace with broken streets
    Your face turned towards the storm

    This song needs some fucking personality
    Anybody? Somebody?
    Give me some fucking personality!
    What happened to personality

    You are afraid
    Uneducated on where this would lead
    Going on for far too long
    We are sorry for the greed
    Leave us in pieces and places
    War torn and wronged

    In between whispers and screams
    You permeate my soul
    Lost between nightmares and dreams
    You decimate this home

    Learn to swim in rushing rivers
    Breaking on the shore
    Make your peace with broken streets
    Your face turned towards the storm

    How do I look? Disappointing
    How about I disappoint them more?
    I am a disappointment!
    How about I disappoint them more? Writer/s: MARK HOPPUS, WILLIAM FELDMANN, MATTHEW THOMAS SKIBA, TRAVIS BARKER
