lyrics

Somebody wrote “DON'T GO TO COLLEGE” on the wall in the green room
You saw it when you were cleaning up after the headlining act

Maybe you just shouldn’t go to college
Maybe you just shouldn’t go to college
Maybe you just shouldn’t go to college in the fall or at all

A bonfire, mostly townies, in the woods before the Fourth of July
He was quiet, slightly older, slightly damaged
In all the ways that you liked at the time

You said “Maybe I just shouldn’t go to college"
Maybe I just shouldn’t go to college
Maybe I just shouldn’t go to college
Maybe I just shouldn’t go to college in the fall or at all

You’ve got to choose something
You’ve got to choose something
But no matter what you choose you’re gonna lose, you’re gonna lose
No matter what you choose you’re gonna lose, you’re gonna lose
No matter what you choose you’re gonna lose, you’re gonna lose
You’re gonna lose

Maybe you just shouldn’t go to college
Maybe you just shouldn’t go to college
Maybe you just shouldn’t go to college in the fall or at all

You’ll be out the door and on the bus tomorrow morning before daybreak
With as many clothes as you can fit in your brother’s old army rucksack
You'll be widely understood as a catastrophe
But your grandmother would have understood completely
She had scars from an industrial sewing machine all over her hands
