Ben Kweller - Commerce, TX Lyrics

i got a bad flavor
i got dirty clothes
i got a strange neighbor
who doesn't have curtains on her windows

i got a pet hedgehog
drinkin' jaeger all day
you got me crate combo and a baby on the way
but it's ok

it's gonna take a lot of time
before i can cross that finish line
and when i can't take the fall
i really wanna make that call

ooh ooh ooh ooh ah ah ah

that's my new best friend
ann disaster's her name
we're passin' out on the carpet
and our attributes are the same

it's the slacker lifestyle
that we do so well
bills are due on monday
i'm oblivious, can't you tell

it's gonna take a lot of time
before i can cross that finish line
and when i can't take the fall
i really wanna make that call

my brain is super-fried
it involves pain to look inside

it's gonna take a lot of time
before i can cross that finish line
and when i can't take the fall
i really wanna make that call

  16. ZyxthePest

    Little did you know he'd one day be in a bidding war with labels, work with Ben Lee and Ben Folds, and be featured on several soundtracks and compilations. Crazy world, eh?

  17. bcomer1488

    Come back to Fitzgerald's in Houston so I can walk 2 blocks home piss drunk again!

  18. Rone Guilherme Zanchi


  19. Angela Gammill

    I spent some of the best years as a child in Commerce.
    . He rocks!

  20. Maddy Wolf

    Awwhh he was so young :')


    wait......Sonic drinks Jaeger!?

  22. Chrisann Lomax

    That is the dopest jacket ever!

  23. Madeline Hearn

    Thank you for posting this! You are my hero.

  24. thesodiumchild

    I still love Ben just as much as I did when I was fifteen and first heard his music when he came on stage at a John Mayer concert.
    He's lovely and he rocks!

  25. Tessa Denise

    i love this man.

  26. johnny quispe


  27. Christopher Bishop

    haha, im from Commerce, pretty cool that the name of a semi-famous song is our town lol

    Mike Torres

    Yeah, unfortunately the republic of Texas is a Blythe to this country!

  28. sk8free09

    I'm from Commerce,TX. and I run track for them.. I really want those trails..

  29. SeeSarahGo

    I saw him back in 2008 in Birmingham, AL. Great show.

  30. sxswitch

    Anyone else thinks he sounds sort of like Weezer?

  31. Peter Gerstenzang

    Just interviewed him. Lovely lovely fella too.

  32. Helvetica Neue

    That's a good point. That fine line between homage and imitation. From what I've heard of him it's either trying to be Weezer or Ben Folds.

  33. endocry

    @NinjaJedi Pretty lame justification. I have more respect for a terrible (not saying Weezer is by any means), yet original band, than some dork that just blatantly rips off another artist like this. Hope he's paying Weezer royalties.

  34. Helvetica Neue

    Anything that rips off Blue/Pinkerton era Weezer is much much better than what Weezer is right now.

  35. DynastyTexas


    name sounds familiar. Don't know who it is though.

  36. Andrew Rush

    My Ex-StepSister is from Celeste.....
    Karri Wolfe.....she's 25.......or her older brother JR Wolfe....he's like 28 or 29 now

  37. Peter Gerstenzang

    @peterbkamp Die bigoted creep. Just fucking die.

  38. Hyacinths Eliot

    Is anyone else kind of reminded of Holden Caufield when watching this?

  39. endocry

    HUGE FUCKING WEEZER RIPOFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
