  • I hope this isn't a burden
    Thanks for having us over
    We could sleep on the couch
    We could sleep on the floor
    We would leave before you even noticed we were here
    Even notice us at all

    Been having problems with our landlord
    He said he's taking us both to court
    She got her hours slashed
    And my unemployment's drying up fast
    We both got worthless diplomas from worthless universities
    Two bachelors in worthless studies
    But at least it made our parents happy
    And cost a whole lot of money

    You said LA's only two days if we drive straight
    Denver if we get tired
    Said you didn't mind stopping just as long as we got out of the midwest states
    The midwestern states
    The midwestern states
    The midwestern states
    The midwestern states

    But I know somewhere in Chicago where we can stay for a little
    I hope this isn't a burden
    Thanks for having us over
    Most nights we always fall asleep with something dumb on Netflix
    Some nights trash reality or kids cartoons or shitty documentaries
    Not perfect but we're good together
    Yeah, me, you, and our bad tattoos
    Yeah, all our stick and pokes, all our inside jokes
    We'll regret them when we're dead and sober
    But we're still breathing and the party ain't over

    You said LA's only two days if we drive straight
    Denver if we get tired
    Said you didn't mind stopping just as long as we got out of the midwest states
    You said LA's only two days if we drive straight
    Denver if we get tired
    Said you didn't mind stopping just as long as we got out of the midwest states
    The midwestern states
    The midwestern states
    The midwestern states
