Dismemberment Plan – Ellen And Ben lyrics

Ellen and Ben
They met at someone's house warming party
They didn't like each other at first
I was still there
I heard them talking as they found their rain coats
They made a date expecting the worst
When Ellen got home she made a snack
And went up on her rooftop
And didn't think about Ben at all
She stayed up for hours just watching all the drunk folks find their taxis
'cause all in all it was a good night
Soco (southern comfort)in bed, a sunny sunday watching John Mclaughlin
And having s** again and again
I'd stopped by cause Ellen had my copy of Nebraska
They never even put on their clothes
I hung for a while but everytime I tried to ask them something they started
Making out all again
I thougt it was rude
I couldn't tell you why, why
Ellen and Ben they may as well run off to Havana
They simply disappeared for a year
They'd show up at shows
But less and less and saying "hi" to no one
And why they even came was unclear
They got a new place
But Neither of their names were in the phonebook
So no one really knew where they where
I thought it was cheap
But I couldn't tell you why
Yea yea why yea yea
When I was ten I had this book of modern fighter planes with F-15s and Migs
And headed for a brighter future with ----------
------ the Ocean City girls on the boardwalk singing oh oh oh oh oh oh yeah ye
Yah yah yah
Ellen and Ben I heard they broke up loudly at a wedding and never saw each
Other again
It seems kinda weird, they make each other feel like they could die but they
Couldn't stay the slightest of friends
I'm doing fine, I'm staying busy hanging with my nephew
And trying to keep my eyes on the prize
You know how it goes
And so do I
So call me when you can now
You know how I love a surprise
O yea O yea
