I don’t think I fully knew what I was doing at the time, but fuck. Picking this to be the last song I played on my final college radio show? It was the perfect choice. For so many reasons. Some corny, some personal. All still feel just as valid to me as they did today when I was planning out my show that day. Some have grown, while others have shrunk, in importance. But still. It’s all still there…
The party’s over, a CD skipping It’s the same hook repeating Grows more grating with each passing second
And the walls contain a resonation, laughter, and conversation It was fun while it lasted, but now we should be going I hope everybody had a real real good time The hospitality’s partaken My head is flying my hearts racing to keep up
And I hope I haven’t overdone it I hope my body can take it I hope I make the occasion It’s only this fucked up I start realizing all this living is just dying
And if these are my friends If this is my home If this is how I spend my nights How I communicate And demonstrate a love of life My eyes roll into the back of my head If these are the last words that I ever said No, I’m not ready to die just yet
Mad Caddies album Duck And Cover is probably one of the funnest, happy-go-lucky albums to listen to on Fat Wreck Chords. I don’t know if it is the vocals, the horns, guitars, or lyrics but I really do recommend listening to it. “Road Rash” was the first Mad Caddies song I ever heard so I thought it would be appropriate to post it on here. “The Gentleman” and “Macho Nachos” are also excellent songs.
