April In Houston

Album: Berkeley's on Fire (2019)
  • (Drums in my ear)

    My train just caught on fire and I'm stuck here at the station
    Is that Shannon playing on my favorite radio?
    I can remember the first time that I saw her
    I should have known that she would always be around

    And what's the problem if I've got a little hesitation?
    It it wrong to be afraid of growing up?
    Can we wash these extra hands
    I'm losing my sense of direction
    In a haze
    (Shit)

    When everybody wants to get me high
    Everybody wants to get me high
    Everybody wants to get me high
    But where will they go when I'm low
    Where will they go when I'm low

    I told myself I'd never lose a bet against me
    I told my mom I'd never stay out after dark
    Fuck it all, I plead the fifth
    Modern music makes me sick
    And leaves me hungry for some action

    Your brain just caught on fire
    So you're stuck here playing dress up
    Would you unsee everything and sedate yourself again?
    Here's an axe
    Find a tree
    What an opportunity to start a blaze

    When everybody wants to get me high
    Everybody wants to get me high
    Everybody wants to get me high
    But where will they go when I'm low
    Where will they go when I'm low

    (Drums in my ear, just what I need)

    Everybody wants to
    Everybody wants to
    Everybody wants to
    Everybody wants to get you high
    Get you high
    Get you highWriter/s: Cole Becker, Joey Armstrong, Max Becker
