Swearin' – Big Change lyrics
High school summer vacation
On heavy rotation
It spills through broken PA speakers
We are all older now
And the same things get us going
At least I can admit it

The best years of our lives
Were spent in some strangers basement
Medley made of empty cans and ex's
And that radical romantic conversation
About how we are like mutants
Who found each other by chance through rock n roll music
Clenched fist, eyes wild
Scream over the records, you artfully compiled
While I put my bad faith into practice

Sit at home on Saturday night
Ease into my false sense of superiority
No art degree, no conservatory
Just Katie and me
And whatever we are drinking
To diminish our diplomacy
If you can't appreciate the art
Appreciate the air conditioning

High school dance with me baby
I gave it all up
Baby, I slipped away before your grasp was too tight
We're both older now
But you still let the music determine how you feel
Any given night
Watch you sway in your dress and ruining your life
And so you are not like the others
Yeah (?) you change
Under toxic matter with zero effort made

Well I haggled and (?) for just a moment
It's a beautiful idea
But hopelessness brings consistency
And the disappointment it isn't surprising
So never swoon
You sing songs to clean your fingernails too
And your letters read and write and seek out the guillotine
