Dear Sergio:
Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Run, run, run all you do is fucking run but you'll never run away from yourself. I know it's hard but you've been there before and you know you're gonna be there again. I don't care what the stars may say because they always feed their bullshit to me. It's kinda sad how you lost what you had and you're never gonna have it again and so I say:

Hey Sergio, it's getting kind of hot in here
And so I say:
Hey Sergio, you've got to get us out of here
And so I say:
Hey
Every other day you don't care what they say because they always leave you two steps behind. You try to smile and it lasts for a while but they always send you back to the start. Eenie meenie miney mo they shoot down everyone you know and then they leave you there all alone. You wish they'd stop but they never give up and you know deep inside that you're stuck and so I say:

Hey Sergio, it's getting kind of hot in here
And so I say:
Hey Sergio, you've got to get us out of here
And so I say:
Hey

Sergio laughed for the last time today, He said â??It never really bothered me: we all have dues to payâ?? Like a man that's cut off at the knee, he hobbles and hobbles because nothing is free. So wake up, wake up, wake up but don't cry because you'll fuck up your make up and if you do, you won't get laid, you won't make money, no you won't get paid. So you act so free, you act so free, everybody's happy because you act so free. Well you might fool them, but you can't fool me with your mindless chatter like â??I don't need them, I don't need helpâ?? I don't even need to see the end.

Hey Sergio, it's getting kind of hot in here
And so I say:
Hey Sergio, you've got to get us out of here




And so I say:
Hey
