WORDS TO LIVE BY: “We gonna rock it ’til the wheels fall off.” – Nate Dogg
I WROTE THIS SONG: in my bedroom in my old house. The room was about 5 x 10, in the basement, and I felt like things weren’t going that well for us and half the band had just quit. Kind of a turning point that made us realize some of the more important things in life… not just being worried about traffic violations, getting arrested, or school breathing down our necks again. I originally wrote it about addiction and death but went for a more nostalgic take by the finish line as a last minute track in the studio.
