As I desaturate the fertile greens, I wanna tell you I
Don't perpetuate these western schemes but I can't stop laughing at
The shortsightedness of childhood dreams where we're all young astronauts.
The truth is it sucks being young and in love.
When you're old you're just bummed that you'll never be happy enough.

Swim in waterfalls while parents sleep; emerge with spider bites.
Fearlessly exploring new countries, I crashed my motorbike.
I wanted to outline the scar in tattoo ink.
It looked like a polar bear or Africa.
But the scar went away and my memories changed.
No, it wouldn't be great to be back in 1998.

I've been treating my body
Like I never worry that I'm gonna die
Cause you would forgive me.
I've been treating my body
Like I, like I'm worried
That I'm gonna die and you're gonna forget my name.

So what do we get for the friends we've met and the ones we love at home?
Yeah, what do we get for the friends we've met and the one we've left alone?

We're gonna give 'em a trip to the hospital.
We're gonna give 'em the bill for the funeral.
We're gonna give 'em the debt from our student loans.
We're gonna give 'em what's left of the sh*t we owned.
[x2]

I've been treating my body
Like I never worry that I'm gonna die
Cause you would forgive me.
I've been treating my body
Like I, like I'm worried
That I'm gonna die and you're gonna forget my name.
I'm gonna die and you're gonna forget my name.
I'm gonna die and you're gonna forget my name.

So what do we get for the friends we've met and the ones we love at home?
Yeah, what do we get for the friends we've met and the one we've left alone?
