Back to Hang It Up lyrics

Hang It Up

My friends they get me higher and higher
They're killing me with friendly fire
We meet beneath the cactus tree
But walking on spikes just ain't for me
My friends ain't got a worry more
They meet outside the corner store
And walk the pavement, miss the cracks
I'd join them if I could relax
Look for a trick when you don't have a thing
Live like a hermit if you wanna be king
People say it's not worth the wait
Everybody loves somebody to hate

I'm not gonna go and rush this through my veins
Blow them up while looking for this again
Punk rock ain't in division
Send all the wicked kings to prison
I wanna write about setting something free
All the changes drive us back to see
And this is all about starting out again
Same old, same old, never stay the same
My friends one by one get a job
Meet boys in cars and get a dog
Throw parties, we sit on the ground
I'd rather they just let me down
People say it's not worth the wait
Everybody loves somebody to hate

And you can hang it up, And you can hang it up
This time baby you can hang it up
You can hang it up, And you can hang it up
This time baby you can hang it up
You can hang it up, And you can hang it up
This time baby you can hang it up
You can hang it up, And you can hang it up
This time baby you can hang it up

Could've been a lawyer, take what you can
Never been happy since time began
It's getting kinda heavy, I'm a body full of bad bones
Buried in the backyard, covering me in flagstones
You got the time, they all can wait
You wanna stop talking, cuz it's not too late
Aquarium, stare at 'em
Everybody loves somebody to hate

[Jules]
Break it, make it
You can make the break
Backache, for fuck's sake, just make it great
Intake, no fake
Gonna let go
Make all the changes that you need to make
(Give it up you motherfucker)
Stand back, give it up
Ain't life a bitch
No one making you, just you on this
Insane, causes fame you may tame
Time for you to rearrange

And you can hang it up, And you can hang it up
This time baby you can hang it up
You can hang it up, And you can hang it up
This time baby you can hang it up
You can hang it up, And you can hang it up
This time baby you can hang it up
You can hang it up, And you can hang it up
This time baby you can hang it up
