If I lit a match would I just let it burn me If I sped towards crosswalks would they jump from my car If I pushed you from a bridge, would you swim to safety Would it come to haunt me if I stole your gun Wish I had a button for the big shiny bomb Wish I had a button for the big shiny bomb Would I chicken out before we broke in the window Anything worth trying is worth trying twice Would you close your eyes before the whole thing crumbled Would I pull the trigger if you asked me nice Chorus How many bottles can we break before we get dragged out How many insults can he take before he smashed your face Would you tell a lie beyond a shadow of a doubt Would you really obliterate the human race Chorus 2x The big shiny bomb, the big shiny bomb, the big shiny bomb, the big shiny

I've run with beasts and goddamn animals Raising flasks to greet the dawn We're busy bleeding on the dance hall Sixteen days turn into one And this is our time These are our ways We're courtly and refined I run with sharks and whiskey junkies Functioning on rotting minds Too busy eating up the termites We don't know, but we will in time This is our time And these are our ways Won't you come along for the ride We were made for parking lots Born to dance our asses off Screaming "fire" in a crowded liquor store We can't be tamed, but we'll be bought And this is our time These are our ways We're courtly and refined We are the Modern Gentlemen

Unfortunate endeavors leave me in my head Pushin' back the covers, sleep alone instead Giving what I get dear exponentially Hoping for that backwards day you do the same for me No I'm not tryin' to squander what's left of twenty But my tendencies lean toward Wasted love & money Forget my aspirations, end up playing house Remember when I didn't loathe every word from your mouth Only ever fought to win and what a special prize Boredom, rage, suspicion, jealousy and compromise And if I manage to survive my twenties Will I learn how to stop Wastin' love & money Wasted love & money

Don't go thinkin' you can take my money I just wanna get paid I ain't lookin' for no lovin' squeezin' Cause I only wanna get laid Can't get my fill, so I'm tradin' in my 20's, tradin' in my 20's Can't get my fill, so I'm tradin' in my 20's for a single dollar bill yeah Never asked you for your damned opinion, I'm only takin' what's mine So start talkin' about what your givin'. No? You're only wastin' my time
