NOFX - August 8th Lyrics




Birds sing there's not a cloud in the sky, yeah August 8th is a beautiful day,
I see a bunch of hippies crying, yeah August 8th is a beautiful day,
Like waking up from a real bad dream, suddenly everything is ok.
The storm has passed and the sun is shining, yeah August 8th is a beautiful day.

What's going on, what's going on, is something bumming your scene?
There's something wrong, there's something wrong, I'm not trying to be mean.

The air is sweet the summer flowers blooming nowhere in sight is there anything grey,
Feelings of joy are filling the street, yeah August 8th is a beautiful day.
Like waking up from a fucked up dream, suddenly everything's looking good.
There's been no permanent damage done, yeah August 8th came right when it should.

What's going on, what's going on, is something bumming your scene?
There's something wrong, there's something wrong, I'm not trying to be mean.

Poor Jeff,
Poor little Timmy Turtle,
Staying home on such a beautiful day.

  6. John Brown

    I hope there's some electronic artist somewhere writing a song mocking middle-aged punks over Kim Shattuck's death.

  7. owenlassley

    Dislike this comment

  8. John Reusch

    About 16-17 years ago these guys headlined at Warped Tour. After a day of 20+ bands....EVERYONE was watching NOFX. And they were awesome.

  9. John Brown

    I wonder if there's a young EDM artist penning a song mocking all the old punks for mourning Kim Shattuck.

  10. Joseph Boggs

    Fat mike is an embarrassment. He wishes he was 1/10,000th as relevant as Jerry Garcia . But I digress, even in he punk community , he’s a joke . He’s just a rich old man playing punk dress up . A total farce

  11. J A

    Fucking hate myself.

    Great album, better song ! Punk rock not dead

  78. Andrew Motta

    John McCain died I think we should change the lyrics to August 25 is a beautiful day

    Scrambles the Death Dealer

    Dude, I grew up listening to a lot of punk rock and other shit. I understand that it's rebellious music with a lot of social and political views and ideals, and that it's meant to insite change (like a lot of music). I'm all for a lot of changes. Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought that (most) punk music was meant to spread peace, love, unity and respect (yeah, I love electronic music as well... all the ravers know what I'm hinting at 😉), not hate. Yeah, there are a million different offshoots of punk, so views and values vary across them (the song Nazi Punks Fuck Off probably wouldn't exist if not for there being Nazi punks). I guess I got a different message than you did, but I respect your right to your own opinion.

    Y'all can say what you want about me, I'm a grown man, I can handle criticism. I welcome differing opinions and discussing them civilly (as time permits).

    Regardless of all of that, peace everyone!!!

  79. Marius ChristianDwaZero
