rite of spring lyrics – angels & airwaves

“rite of spring”

i was locked all day in the summer heat,
in a small brown house in suburban street,
with a skateboard and my sh*t guitar,
i’d dream all day that they would get me far,
my dad would ask me about my grades,
the *sshole sports that i never played.
and then i’d ask about the girls he’d date,
behind our backs when mom would stay up late.
it was near when i turned sixteen,
got kicked out of school, and so it seemed
that things were closing in and ready to blow,
my dad moved out about that year or so,
it took an hour to start a punk rock band
to offset my f*cked up family land
and as i held my mom would start to cry
i swore ourselves a better life

if i had a chance for another try,
i wouldn’t change a thing
it’s made me all of who i am inside
and if i could thank god
that i am here, and that i am alive
and everyday i wake
i tell myself a little harmless lie
the whole wide world is mine

the summers gone, the years have p*ssed,
my friends have changed, a few did last,
the smallest dreams got pushed aside,
the largest ones that changed my life,
and all i wish for has come to p*ss
from rock n roll, to love and cash
it’s all success if it’s what you need
do what you like and do it honestly

if i had a chance for another try,
i wouldn’t change a thing
it’s made me all of who i am inside
and if i could thank god
that i am here, and that i am alive
and everyday i wake
i tell myself a little harmless lie
the whole wide world is mine

hey yo oh oh oh
hey yo oh oh
hey yo oh oh oh
hey yo oh oh
hey yo oh oh oh
hey yo oh oh
hey yo oh oh oh
hey yo oh oh

if i had a chance for another try,
i wouldn’t change a thing
it’s made me all of who i am inside
and if i could thank god
that i am here, and that i am alive
and everyday i wake
i tell myself a little harmless lie
the whole wide world is mine
