lyrics

I pledge allegiance to the day,
We finally go our separate ways
Again I’m wrong and still I'm stuck
With all the girls that make bad luck


She needs sun lamps she needs food stamps
Smashing windows in her basement
Using sharps on holidays
Her mind’s an ash covered Pompeii


Don’t make friends with a lightning rod
Don’t make friends with a lightning rod
They said, don’t play hero don’t play god
And don’t make friends with a lightning rod


She wants action I want traction
We can’t get no satisfaction
It's always dark before she strikes
So I've learned to hate the night


Keep your lovers, under cover
But we’re too drunk to love each other
Love each other


Tomorrow never comes
Cause she's never having fun
She hides and i'll just hum
That’s the way the news goes


What are we running from?
Screaming with an iron lung
Our hearts are smart and our minds are young
That’s the way the news goes

Don’t make friends with a lightning rod
Don’t make friends with a lightning rod
They said, don’t play hero don’t play god
And don’t make friends with a lightning rod
