The sun is in the sky and it is gonna be a glorious day, huh
So pour yourself a coffee, put your clothes back on and tell me your name
Now hearts are getting broken but I guess it's what they call growing up
We don't expect results because the kids around here don't give a...

Nothing really matters, nothing really matters at all
When all your dreams are shattered, everything is beautiful
Nothing ever happens, they think we waste our lives but they're wrong
We're moving on
Yeah...

Chorus
(Everybody knows) You know the ships going down
(Everybody knows) Oooh, when sailor jerry's around
(Everybody knows) We're gonna die in this town

And Hey!
Woah...

My voice is gone from screaming
And my body aches from giving them hell (na na na na, na na na na)
You gotta know the truth that we're not in this for the cash but it helps (na na na na, na na na na)
Woah...

Nothing really matters, nothing really matters at all
When all your dreams are shattered, everything is beautiful
Nothing ever happens, they think we waste our lifes but thier wrong
We're moving on
Yeah

(Everybody knows) You know the ships going down
(Everybody knows) Yeah, when sailor jerry's around
(Everybody knows) We're gonna die in this town

Danny!
*Guitar Solo*
Uh...
Yeah-eh

Everybody knows, hey
Everybody knows, oh yeah
Everybody knows
Oh we're gonna die in this town

You know, you know...

(Everybody knows) Oh you know the ships going down
(Everybody knows) Yeah, when sailor jerry's around
(Everybody knows) Yeah we're gonna die in this town

Woah...
Woo
Woah...
Hey
Woah...
Hey

We're gonna die in this town.

    um those lyrics are wrong..

    the chorus is:

    everybody knows, you know the ships going down
    everybody knows, yeah when sailor jerrys around

    sailor jerry is alc. btw.

    and i think its about following your dreams. simple as that. doing what you need to do to get where you want to go. and for them it was their music.
