lyrics

I hang out with my old friends all day inside my head
one of you moved to Japan to teach English to all the little children
I drive around with my old friends - this highway never ends
one of you now works for NASA, and the two of you have a kid

your firecrackers in the car - we thought that you blew off your arm
you tried to put it in park. and only made it to neutral
and someone climbed out of the moonroof, and I'm still curled up fetal
while you stand so tall - I should give you all a call

I'm at a diner with my old friends, cigarettes and coffee mugs bottomless
the teachers took away our skateboards, and now you're air traffic control in the air force
LAN parties with my old friends - honing our strategies in Starcraft
one of you is off in Kentucky, soul searching and moonshining

your bedroom in the basement, Modest Mouse and Animatrix
learning to build computers, looking up to your older brothers
now we just facebook message each other from 500 miles away
I got to see you for one day, and for that day nothing had changed

I'm growing up with my old friends, pulled apart, learning to work til death
we all get so exhausted, and some of us have totally lost it
but it will be alright when you point out my receding hairline
we will laugh it off and remember that none of us has forever
time ravages us together - we should check in on each other
try to live some of the same moments, even when we cannot share them
