parking lots make me feel better
when we were dying in the summer
promised to write you a letter
but can’t face another bummer
bravery boys cause disasters
on the road we serve no masters
nothing but our own ambition
will lead to our extinction

self destruction takes its toll
unraveling in this black hole
constant battle with all my problems
leaving town's my only option
life's fallin’ apart for me
if this is how it has to be
i’ll pack my bags and leave this city
so sick of feeling empty

my best friends are all i need
unlock our dreams and set them free
this town has nothing left for me
all i loved is now debris
we fly our flags and set our sails
these tattered rags convey our tales
reflecting on emotions felt
and coping with the hands we’re dealt

broken hearts just won’t heal
i want to forget how to feel
i’ll fix myself with my men
pack the van then leave again
parking lots feel like my home
or is this van my final tomb
either way you won’t see me soon
i’ll be gone singing out of tune

bravery boys help heal the pain
things will never be the same
