about

We wrote this as a fun party song, we don't really have very many of those but with help from Ross Lara (Instrumental) and Kieffer Lietsch (Guitars) we were able to bring this original to life!

lyrics

Verse 1 (Content)

We're staring down the barrel of a pipe dream
Yeah, we got tunnel vision
The neon life with bright lights, we're on a mission
Fire up the engines and let em roar.
Let it soar
Knock, knock, knocking on heaven's door
And there's no time to breathe
When you fuck sleep and you're partying like us
In a heated mirage, setting sail with a nightcap, bon voyage

(Chorus)

I'm just living my dream
Lights and flashy things
Everyone's drinking
Let's get numb til we all scream
I - am - never going home
I - am - here to drink till I'm gone
Here to drink till I'm, here to drink till I'm, here to drink till I'm gone
Into my dreams
Lights and flashy things
Everyone's drinking
Let's get numb til we all sing

Dah, dah, dah dah dah dah dah,
Dah dah, dah dah dah dah dah,
Dah dah dah dah dah, Dah dah dah dah dah, Dah!

Verse 2 (Joule)

Dreamin' with my eyes open, doin' me
And I'm swimmin' through these spirits
I fell in the dead sea.
Drinkin' till I'm gone but if she ask I'm tipsy
Gettin' numb-er then my lips be
Get her number like she miss me
Will she kiss me? I don't know.
But if she does I'll get her wetter then Davey Jones. (Aha!)
And I'm here all evening
Wake up in the morning and I'm leaving!
Gone!

(Chorus)

I'm just living my dream
Lights and flashy things
Everyone's drinking
Let's get numb til we all scream
I - am - never going home
I - am - here to drink till I'm gone
Here to drink till I'm, here to drink till I'm, here to drink till I'm gone
Into my dreams
Lights and flashy things
Everyone's drinking
Let's get numb til we all sing

Dah, dah, dah dah dah dah dah,
Dah dah, dah dah dah dah dah,
Dah dah dah dah dah, Dah dah dah dah dah, Dah!

Verse 3 (FailSafe)

Future's looking so bright, I'm inside wearing shades
Rocking open mic nights like we're getting paid
Crown and chronic creeping on the floor
Gotta take it back, tippin' while I'm sippin' out in sport
Let me golf clap!
Like a Tiger with class
(Hardknocks no Harvard)
Fuck smokin' the swag
(Wrap up the 'starburst')
I'm dodging the traps
(Burn up like "Starburns")
We live and we learn, Read & Return in head first.

(Chorus)

I'm just living my dream
Lights and flashy things
Everyone's drinking
Let's get numb til we all scream
I - am - never going home
I - am - here to drink till I'm gone
Here to drink till I'm, here to drink till I'm, here to drink till I'm gone
Into my dreams
Lights and flashy things
Everyone's drinking
Let's get numb til we all sing

Dah, dah, dah dah dah dah dah,
Dah dah, dah dah dah dah dah,
Dah dah dah dah dah, We all sing - Gone!
