lyrics

Roman soldiers in the city of champions
Waging war over politics of the scene
Living the dream
I fantasize about tiny rooms
With writing on the walls and dirty carpets
A place I know I feel free
Choking on cigarette smoke
And I’ll just be the butt of every joke

All I thought I needed was a cheap guitar
And three chords repeating in a two minute song
But the debts stack up and before too long
You’re making all these compromises that you can’t come back from
I want a 12cent sticker on every surface
And I’ll do it all for free because fuck the business
But everything’s a game, that’s the lesson you learn
You’ve got to play while your body can still handle the burn
So I’ll drink another beer
And toast to pissing away another year

I can’t help feeling like I missed my chance when I was eighteen
I could have joined up with the Romans and lived the dream
