Bright Eyes – Solid Jackson lyrics
She says she's read too many fashion magazines
And as the basement collects more kids off the street
She's forgotten what real love is like
They've been tuning up there for an hour now
They smoke themselves to death waiting for the band to begin
And I don't think I can stand another minute more
But just then the first chord strums, and the drums set in
And I know what I have been waiting around for
Because no one's going home until the morning comes
No one's going to sleep until the sun comes up
And the band's not going to stop until the cops show up
They were fucking tuff
Did you hear those first two songs?
So hold your applause until the end
And wait for the sadness to set in
That's worth a damn
Cause that's the only feeling that's worth a damn
There's too many opinions and so few are worth a shit
He says he's done with the pop music scene
He has got to learn to act a little more mean
Cause the mean ones always end up with the record deals
When we are screaming at each other is when I'm most happy
But it's only when I'm angry that I feel complete
I hang out with my friends and then I get depressed
But I can do without the eucharist
And I quit going to church a year ago
And I drink myself to sleep with any strength that's left
Cause I found God in a Solid Jackson songand my teachers think that my faith is gone
