311 – Beautiful Disaster lyrics

Today seems like a good day to burn a bridge or two
The one with old wood creaking that would burn away right on cue
I try to be not like that but some people really suck
Some people need to get the axing chalk it up to bad luck

I know a drugstore cowgirl so afraid of getting bored
She's always running from something so many things ignored
I might do that stuff if it didn't make me feel like shit
I'm on some old reality tip so many trips in it

Beautiful disaster
Flyin' down the street again
I tried to keep up
You wore me out and left me ate up
Now I wish you all the luck
You're a butterfly in the wind without a care
A pretty train crash to me and I can't care
I do I don't whatever

I know a drugstore cowgirl so afraid of getting bored
She's always running from something so many things ignored
I try to be not like this but I thought it'd make a good song
There's nothing to see shows over people just move along

Beautiful disaster
Flyin' down the street again
I tried to keep up
You wore me out and left me ate up
Now I wish you all the luck
You're a butterfly in the wind without a care
A pretty train crash to me and I can't care
I do I don't whatever

    Brilliant song about ending a toxic friendship. The singer has decided it's time to "burn a bridge"; I. E. End the relationship; the "old wood creaking" suggests this ending is long overdue. He doesn't want to be the kind of guy who cuts people out, but "some people really suck" and "need to get the axing." One example of the type of friend who will ultimately "wear [you] out and lead [you] on" is the "drugstore cowgirl" who shirks all responsibility and lives life like a "butterfly in the wind without a care." the type of person who engages in reckless behavior because they are "so afraid of getting bored."
    I was going through a situation with a friend like that and as I listened to this song, it suddenly all made sense.
