Throwback Summer

lyrics

I swear they'll chew you up and spit you out and leave you with nothing at all. It's not fair but it's a dirty business and you do what you must to survive. I'll be working late tonight.
It's supposed to be a throwback summer, I'm still doing all the same things that I always do. I'm seeing all the same old people but I thought I'd see my friends from my hometown. Well I guess it all depends where you consider home. Is it where you lay your head? Is it where you want to stay or where your mind roams instead?
I swear they'll chew you up and spit you out and leave you with nothing at all. It's not fair but it's a dirty business and you do what you must to survive. I'll be working late tonight.
And I know you're sitting home alone, waiting to hear the 8 bits of your overpriced ringtone, but I don't have it in me tonight. I don't think we can go out without a fight. But I'm packing up my bags and I'm getting in my car, I guess it beats sitting alone and wondering how you are.
I swear they'll chew you up and spit you out and leave you with nothing at all. It's not fair but it's a dirty business and you do what you must to survive. I'll be working late tonight.
And the floor fell out from under my feet and I saw blank stares from all the people that I wanted you to meet. And I can't write a perfect song for the kids to blast and hum along to, but I can try at least for the night.
I wanna live in a world of make believe with paper hearts on every sleeve and swoopy hair for everyone. But I've found that life means so much more when you stop viewing living as a chore, the summer's rough and I've had enough.
