lifeblood: songs: lyrics: driver education


i fell for guys
who tried to commit suicide
with soft rock hair
blood shot eyes
tastes like marlboro cigarettes
reese's peanut butter cups
a pepsi in his hand
getting off the school bus
films and drills
safety illustrations
the crushed cars
of driver education
driver education

now its tattooed girls
with a past they can't remember
who pledged allegiance to the life
of bending the curriculum
she tastes like spring
there she goes again
drinking with the older guys
tripping by the lakeside
films and drills
safety illustrations
the crushed cars
of driver education
driver education

when you were sweet sixteen yeah
i was already mean
feeling bad for giving it up to the man
just to make the scene
where were you back
when i had something to prove
with the switchblade set
and the church kids
learning my moves

i ran for miles
through the suburbs of the seventies
pollen dust and pixie sticks
kissing in the deep end
of swimming pools
before i knew what's in there
we come into this life
waterlogged and tender
films and drills
safety illustrations
the crushed cars
of driver education
films and drills
safety illustrations
the crushed cars
of driver education
driver education
driver education
driver education
driver education
driver education
driver education
driver education
driver education
