LyricsEdit

He was drawn-up in the dark up in Penetration Park
He says he's got your medication
She was sitting on the edges of his vision trying to start a revolution
But he's done with all the parties, he's covered in contusions
Your life leaves laugh lines, your love leaves bright bruises
She said she was cruising but she came back all fried and out of focus in a cool car crankin' Krokus

Guys go for looks, girls go for status
There are so many nights where this is just how it happens
Guys go for looks, girls go for status

He was dreadlocked in the dorms in the Colorado corn
He says he's got your vegetation
She was sitting on the edge of the bed smoking trying to reach emancipation
And he's done with DVDs, he's fully entertained
He's bleaching out the blood stains, he's got diamonds in the drain
She said that she was coming but she mostly just make hard fast noises
It kind of sounded like The Locust

Guys go for looks, girls go for status
There are so many nights where this is just how it happens
Guys go for looks, girls go for status

It was song number three on John's last CD,
"I'm gonna make it through this year if it kills me"
And it almost killed me
And song number four on that first D4
You want the scars but you don't want the war
Now that's just hardcore
These kids are clever to the core
Guys go for looks, girls go for status
Guys go for looks, girls go for status
Guys go for looks, girls go for status
