LyricsEdit

There was that whole weird thing with the horses.
I think they know exactly what happened.
I don't think it needs any explaining.
I'm pretty sure I wasn't your first choice.
I think I was the last one remaining.
I wish we hadn't gone and destroyed it.
'Cause I was thinkin’ we could pull another weekender,
If you’ve still got a little bit of clairvoyance

I remember the metal bar,
I remember the reservoir.
You could say our paths have crossed before.

So if it has to be a secret.
Then I guess that I can deal with it.
You and I both know it's a negative thing.
In the end only the girls know the whole truth .
There were a couple pretty crass propositions.
There were some bugs in the bars.
There was a kid camped out by the coat check.
She said the theme of this party is the industrial age.
You came in dressed like a train wreck.


I remember the OTB,
The five second delivery.
You could say our paths had crossed before.

So if it has to be a secret.
Then I guess that I can deal with it.
God only knows it's not always a positive thing.
To see a few seconds into the future.


And if you swear to keep it decent
Then yeah, I'll come and see you.
But it's not gonna be like in romantic comedies.
In the end I bet no one learns a lesson.


In the end only the girls know the whole truth.
In the end I bet no one learns a lesson.

"Chips Ahoy!"Edit

This song has many obvious references to the song Chips Ahoy! off of Boys and Girls in America, the most obvious being the refernce "that whole weird thing with the horses." This song, therefore, serves as a sort of sequel to "Chips Ahoy!"
