Me and my friends are like the drums on "Lust for Life
We pound it out on floor toms
Our psalms are sing-along songs
And this whole town is like this
Been that way our whole lives
Just work at the mill until you die
Work at the mill, and then you die
Were gonna build something, this summer
Well put it back together- raise up a giant ladder
With love, and trust, and friends, and hammers (This summer!)
Were gonna lean this ladder up against the water tower
Climb up to the top, and drink and talk (This summer!)
Me and my friends are like Double-whiskey-coke-no-ice.
We drink along in double time; might drink too much, but we feel fine
Were gonna build something this summer.
Gonna build something this summer.
This summer, grant us all the power to drink on top of water towers,
With love, and trust, and shows, all summer (Get hammered!)
Let this be my annual reminder that we can all be something bigger
I went to your schools, I did my detention
But the walls are so gray, I couldnt pay attention
I heard your gospel- it moved me to tears,
But I couldnt find the hate, and I couldnt find the fear
I met your Savior, I knelt at his feet,
And he took my ten bucks, and he went down the street
I tried to believe all the things that you said,
But my friends that arent dying are already dead.
Raise a toast to St. Joe Strummer
I think he mightve been our only decent teacher
Getting older makes it harder to remember
we are our only saviors
best song of the year no question about it
