Menzingers, The - In Remission Lyrics




I've got a winning lotto ticket from the state of Massachusetts,
Tucked in the back of my wallet,
I'll cash it when I'm back in Boston,
With a blank eye from the cashier,
for why it's torn and busted... up.

I remember that moment of silence,
I was at a mall in Norwich,
Shoppers stared at the ground,
The escalators went on smoke breaks,
Oh 1918, you've yet to see the worst of humans acting.

Maybe the future's just a little bit weird,
Maybe the God you love is all I've got to fear.
Life's a terminal illness in remission,
So I took the weight of it all out for a drink,
And then we drove back drunk through the busy city streets.

I hate how I always get nervous every time I try to speak,
In front of a big crowd, a pretty girl, or the police.
And I hate the things that I know about you,
And all the horrible things that you do.
I don't want to be late for war today,
I want to chew up my dinner and spit in your face,
Light fire to your home and tap your cell phone.

Oh yeah!

If everyone needs a crutch, then I need a wheelchair
I need a reason to reason with you.
If everyone needs a crutch, then I need a wheelchair
I need a reason to reason with you.
If everyone needs a crutch, then I need a wheelchair
I need a reason to reason with you.
If everyone needs a crutch, then I need a wheelchair
I need a reason to reason with you.

Oh yeah!

If everyone needs a crutch then I need a wheelchair
I need a reason to reason with you.
If everyone needs a crutch then I need a wheelchair
I need a reason to reason with you.

    To start off they kinda sounded like Weezer.

  17. Sean Kearney

    What the fuck is real anymore? They can mass produce emotion on demand, fuck there goes the revolution!

  72. Luc Evans

    she's a brick and I'm drowning slowly.. still a great song.

  73. Nadav Drewe

    Impossible Past was amazing, as was Chaimberlain. This song is mediocre by comparison, feels 'fake'. Sorry.

    newthrash1221

    I honestly thought the exact same thing. but this song and record grows on you more than any of their older stuff. this record is my absolute favorite menzingers shit now...besides maybe "hold on, dodge" ep.

    Nadav Drewe

    I will give it more listens on the basis of your high praise. :)

    MouthlyKnives

    +newthrash1221 my dude, 100% agreed
    they are just evolving, the emotional content is 100% still there and as strong as ever!!

    Rough Patches

    +MRLein93 But the best part of this song is the entire song!

  78. Jesse Dewdrop

    Jesse Dewdrop

    +Cole Ohanian ty!
