Written 2010 or 2011. Dave wrote this one for the new album.


Did you ever pop the top off a soda can
And wonder 'bout the sound it made
Scientifically? Or is it just me?
I was walking down the street just humming a tune
Soda can in my hand when the aphids attacked
Ate the shirt off my back

I wonder if you can tell which parts of this song really happened
And which ones I just made up

The sleeves on my shirt are sneaking up on my arms
Where is the breaking point? Do I roll up the cuffs
Or is enough enough?
A shirt can mean more than a trusted old friend
Cuz a shirt would never steal your girl or trample your dreams
Just kinda split at the seams

Some of the verses of this song are better than others
But that's what happens when you don't work too hard

If you live by the clock you can probably tell time
Why don't I hear that more? It's a saying of sorts
Upheld by the courts
There's a moment in time where you know you've done wrong
But you can't do a god damn thing to change what you've done
The clock just struck 1
