    405 Arrangement & Lyrics

     

    Intro x4

     

    Verse 1:

    I took the 405 and drilled a stake down into your center,

    and stated that it's never ever been better than this.

     

    Transition Riff

     

    Verse 1:

    I hung my favorite shirt on the floorboard, wrinkled up

    from pulling, pushing and tasting, tasting.

     

    Transition Riff

     

    Chorus:

    You keep twisting the truth

    That keeps me thrown askew

     

    Intro x2

     

    Verse 2:

    Misguided by the 405 'cause it lead me to an alcoholic summer.

    I missed the exit to your parents' house hours ago.

     

    Transition Riff

     

    Verse 2:

    Red wine and the cigarettes,

    Hide your bad habits underneath the patio, patio, patio, patio.

     

    Repeat Chorus x2

     

    Intro x4

     

    End on Em
