I didn't care when that guy ripped us off
We borrowed a gun to get him, we were so pissed off
We shot his leg.
He was a ****, anyway

It felt good to burn. Felt like a movie star
When you hold my slippery brain
Kiss my forehead

All summer long we refused to die
We just sucked and ****ed and got high
And all we'd steal.
We lit up on the Ferris wheel

Felt good to burn.
Felt like a movie star
When you hold my slippery brain
Kiss my forehead

And all your dreams, and oh, God blessed your soul
I saw you were holdin' your head
But we couldn't have been dead
Cause you stood up and moaned and said,
"I wasn't wavin' goodbye, I was sayin' hello."
