  • On and on, reckless abandon
    Something's wrong
    This is gonna shock them
    Nothing to hold on to
    We'll use this song
    To lead you on

    I learned a lot today
    Not sure if I'll get laid and
    Not sure if I'll fail or pass
    Kissed every girl in class
    Everybody would waste it all
    To have a summer that they could call
    A memory that's full of fun
    Fucked up when it's all done

    On and on, reckless abandon
    Something's wrong
    This is gonna shock them
    Nothing to hold on to
    We'll use this song
    To lead you on
    And break the truth
    With more bad news
    We left a scar size extra large

    Sip a drink of the alcohol
    End up kneeling in bathroom stalls
    Eyes are red and my movements slow
    Too high, got vertigo

    He took a shit in the bathroom tub
    And fed the dog the brownie drugs
    Tried hard not to get caught
    He fucked a chick in a parking lot

    On and on, reckless abandon
    Something's wrong
    This is gonna shock them
    Nothing to hold on to
    We'll use this song
    To lead you on
    And break the truth
    With more bad news
    We left a scar size extra large

    Break a window and bust a wall
    Making fun of your friend's mom
    Turn the music up way too loud
    Charge the pizza to the house
    Everybody would waste it all
    To have a summer that they could call
    A memory that's full of fun
    Fucked up when it's all done

    On and on, reckless abandon
    Something's wrong
    This is gonna shock them
    Nothing to hold on to
    We'll use this song
    To lead you on
    And break the truth
    With more bad news
    We left a scar size extra large Writer/s: Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, Travis Barker
