lyrics

BSMNT

verse: E A7 D7
chorus: G# A E E x2 G# A E C#m F#m /G# A B7

can we go? is it too early for you?
down in the hole they're sparking up your tune
oh the word is...the cops rolled in just as we left
your parents noticed the basement was a fucking mess
& you arranged it so you could sleep in until noon

[chorus]
the evil eye, the mellow flood / the clock is ticking, bad blood
& the explosion was a dud / & you pulled a muscle cause
you won't say you're sorry

no more excuses out of you
you can't stay & talk about the view
you can find me out with autumn on the deck
that reminds me she makes me nervous what the heck
is going through your head? something by the who

[chorus]
the hell am i? the desperate love / the future told, the stars above
& the explosion was a dud / & you pulled a muscle cause
you won't say you're sorry

yeah...
[inst. over verse]
the cops rolled in just as we left
your parents noticed & you prayed for sudden death
& you arranged it so you could sleep in until noon

[repeat 1st chorus]

whoa, c'mon rock out
