Roman Candles Lyrics

It’s almost dusk, I pull the car from the garage
And light the oil heater up, to try fight off early March
I put a baseball through the window
So winter’s climbing in between the shards

The band shows up when everybody’s done their shifts
We play through the all changes I wrote in marker on my wrist
And we talk about the future
Like we’re begging it to kick our f*cking teeth in

Wake me up when it’s over
Someone stole our
Catalytic converter
From the front yard
It’s more than we can handle
Burnt out like Roman candles
Wake me up when it’s over

I’m picturing us, I-80 West outside Cheyenne
In a rusted 15 passenger trying to guess how far the storm is
Counting the seconds between thunder
And the lightning like we did when we were kids

But Mom works at the hospital
Says every shift feels like a curse
She’s never seen people this sick before
She says it’s only getting worse

Wake me up when it’s over
Someone stole our
Catalytic converter
From the front yard
It’s more than we can handle
Burnt out like Roman candles
Wake me up when it’s over

Ain’t that the thing about hope?
Ain’t that the thing about hope?
Each Spring the Mets’ll win the Pennant
And your grass is gonna grow
Ain’t that the f*cked up think about hope?
About hope?
About hope?
About hope?

Wake me up when it’s over
Someone stole our
Catalytic converter
From the front yard
It’s more than we can handle
Burnt out like Roman candles
Wake me up when it’s over
