Lyrics:

We started off without you

a couple months before

you were with us for about a week

and you wanted to go on tour

we weren't ready for that ride

we weren't ready for a gig

we were something small

you tried so hard to make us big


I admit we sounded better after you came in

but we had to get rid of your busted amps and brokens strings


You helped us find a form a sound

one that we all liked

we couldn't have done it without you

then you wanted to change our style

we used to get along as friends and musically

but we had to ditch you

it wasn't working out for you or me



I admit we sounded better after you came in

but we had to get rid of your busted amps and brokens strings


Now that you're gone we're playing decent shows and songs

which ditched you for the show the one you made possible

we sound so much better since you've been gone

so i just want to say thanks and so long
