country kids, we party like we mean it
not cool because we want it / & harder to redeem it
country kids, we're getting dared to try it
we're drinking up our courage / & sparking up a riot.

this 2nd hand remorse, the drug you try to score
an earthquake of a girl could rock you to the core
but she's in love with him, & he's in love with cars
you've made a lot of plans, but nothing's worked so far

can you take what you're given / & have what you're taking
can we be forgiven? / this heart that you're breaking
is all that's left living / inside me, making me hurt so bad.

someone else could break you like a habit
oh man, i think we've had it / your folks are coming home
take my word, you'll see i'm not the only
one of the lonely / who's never been alone.

a summer in the fields & college in the fall
your older brother knows a guy down at the mall
who can totally hook us up with all his mother's pills
well no one knows us yet, but pretty soon they will
the hearts we're gonna fill, the blood we're gonna spill
