Originally release: Amateur Hour (Death to False Hope Records)

lyrics

You’ve gotta know when to regulate
Know when to dominate
Know when to demonstrate
Know when to compensate
When to de-escalate

You’ve gotta know when to hold it down
Know when to get out of town
You’ve gotta know when to knock it down
Know when to turn around
When to put boots on the ground

You’ve gotta know when to understand
You’ve gotta know when to lend a hand
Know when the ship’s unmanned
Know where it’s gonna land
Know when to break up the band

This is the year that we’re gonna hang out or die trying

Hang out or die trying
Hang out or die trying
This is the year that we’re gonna hang out or die trying

Annalise married up
Craig drives a pickup truck
Matt’s a Republican
Arnie is way too thin
He looks like a skeleton

Meghan’s a state senator
Jen raises alligators
Kara, she died in India
I didn’t make it to the funeral

This is the year that we’re gonna hang out or die trying

Hang out or die trying
Hang out or die trying
This is the year that we’re gonna hang out or die trying

Do you remember the Masons hall?
I think it’s got enough room for us all
I set up a backline
Flyered the Main Line
Stocked up on box wine

Now it’s almost 9 o’clock
And no one is showing up
But damnit, we’re doing this
Because I am an optimist
I am an optimist

This is the year that we’re gonna hang out or die trying

Hang out or die trying
Hang out or die trying
This is the year that we’re gonna hang out or die trying

Hang out or die trying
Hang out or die trying
This is the year that we’re gonna hang out
This is the thing that that song was about
That song that we heard when we were 20 years old
That predicted how this was all gonna turn out
This is the year that we’re gonna hang out or die trying

Hang out or die trying
Hang out or die trying
This is the year that we’re gonna hang out or die trying
