​Rite of Spring

This song is by Angels & Airwaves and appears on the album I-Empire (2007) and on the compilation Warped Tour 2008 Tour Compilation (2008).

I was locked all day in the summer heat
In a small brown house in suburban streets
The skateboard and my shit guitar
I dream all day that they would get me far
My dad would ask me about my grades
The asshole sports that I never played
And then I'd ask about the girls he'd date
Behind our backs when mom would stay up late
It was near when I turned sixteen
Got kicked out of school and so it seemed
That things were closing in and ready to blow
My dad moved out about that year or so
It took him hours, start a punk rock band
To offset my fucked up family land
And as I helped, my mom would start to cry
I swore ourselves a better life.

If I had a chance for another try...
I wouldn't change a thing...
This made me all of who I am inside...
And if I could thank God
That I am here and that I am alive...
And everyday I wake
I tell myself a little harmless lie...
The whole wide world is mine...

The summer's gone, the years have passed
My friends have changed, a few did last
The smallest dreams got pushed aside
The largest ones, that changed my life
And all I've wished for has come to pass
From rock'n'roll to love and cash
It's all success if it's what you need
Do what you like and do it honestly.

If I had a chance for another try...
I wouldn't change a thing...
This made me all of who I am inside...
And if I could thank God
That I am here and that I am alive...
And everyday I wake
I tell myself a little harmless lie...
The whole wide world is mine...

Yo, oh, oh-oh
Yo, oh, oh
Yo, oh, oh-oh
Yo, oh, oh
Yo, oh, oh-oh
Yo, oh, oh
Yo, oh, oh-oh
Yo, oh, oh

If I had a chance for another try...
I wouldn't change a thing...
This made me all of who I am inside...
And if I could thank God
That I am here and that I am alive...
And everyday I wake
I tell myself a little harmless lie...
The whole wide world is mine...
If I had a chance for another try...
I wouldn't change a thing...
This made me all of who I am inside...
And if I could thank God
That I am here and that I am alive...
And everyday I wake
I tell myself a little harmless lie...
The whole wide world is mine...
