Only the Wild Ones
Dispatch Lyrics


Long hair and longer stride
Skateboard fair with a primal tribe
And your cut off painter pants
Chargin' down the craggy mountains with our thrift store friends

And who you find so
So in love with the falling earth
Oh you wake in the middle of the falling night
With the summer playing coy

In the attics of the city night
We talked corso and the MC5
And you could dance live
We were all alright

And only the wild ones
Give you something and never want it back
Oh the riot and the rush of the warm night air
Only the wild ones
Are the ones you can never catch
Stars are up now no place to go, but everywhere

One I met in the green mountain state
I dropped out, and he moved away
Heard he got some land down south
Changed his name to a name the birds could pronounce

And only the wild ones
Give you something and never want it back
Oh the riot and the rush of the warm night air
Only the wild ones
Are the ones you can never catch
Stars are up now no place to go but everywhere
(No place to go but everywhere)

And in the city the mayor said
Those who dance are all mislead
So you packed your things and moved to the other coast
Said you gonna be like Charlie Rose

And only the wild ones
Give you something and never want it back
Oh the riot and the rush of the warm night air
Only the wild ones
Are the ones you can never catch
Stars are up now no place to go, but everywhere

Only the wild ones, give you something and never want it back
Oh the riot and rush of the warm night air
Only the wild ones
Are the ones you can never catch
Stars are up now no place to go, but anywhere
Hmm, hmm hmm
Hmm, hmm hmm
Hmm, hmm hmm

ICYMI - Last week we put out the new official video for "Only The Wild Ones" that is inspired from our time on and off the road. From our friends at Camp Jabberwocky in Martha's Vineyard to the beautiful Ileana of Managua, Nicaragua — it is so vital to remember there's always more that unites us than divides.

I love that clip at the end of the surfers holding the flowers. Is there a story behind that, or just something you guys dreamed up for the music video? Either way, it's quite powerful.

This song makes me feel happy about when I feel sad. Like I can feel sad, but in the back of my mind it just feels good to know that I'm really human and can feel deep emotions. It almost removed the label/connotation of negative feelings as being terrible and leaving you in despair, so I can view my negative emotions in a non-prejudiced way. Like my negative emotions aren't good or bad, they're just straight up human nature... idk it's really hard to explain. But this song just makes me feel happy about being a living & feeling human being
