We've Got Everything
We've Got Everything - We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
Lyrics:

We've got everything
We've got everything
We've got everything down to a science
So I guess we know everything

We know everything (We know, we know)
We know everything (We know)
We know everything was built to expire
So I guess we've done everything

If we carried it out to sea
Pushed it over the edge
We'd of all been through

Well first off Garret got drunk
Fell asleep in his car till about noon
Flattop Tony got all messed up
Split his lip chasing cheap perfume
Well look at our boat in the bay
It looks like some sad ass little canoe

We've done everything (We've done, we've done, we've done)
We've done everything
We've done everything like trial by fire
So I guess we've stopped trying now

We've tried everything
We've tried everything (We've tried)
We've tried everything half assed and as liars
And that's how we got everything

If we carried it out to sea
Pushed it over the edge
We could of all been through

Well no one even bothered showing up
But we still did what
We should have thought through

We crashed in like waves up to the store
Didn't want it, didn't need it
But we knew that we could see it
So we opened up the door

We receded like waves out of the store
Didn't want it, didn't need
But we knew we that we could steal
Left it dying on the floor

We were there...

We've got, we've got, we've got, we've got, we've got
We've got, we've got, we've got, we've got, we've got

We've got

We've got everything (We've got, we've got, we've got)
We've got everything (We've got)
We've got everything down to a science
So I guess we know everything

We've got everything (We've got everything)
We've done everything (We've done everything)
We've tried everything (We've done everything
We've got everything (We've got everything)
We've got everything
