Gregory had an Acura
Emily had an Acura
I had an Acura
We were the Acura Club

We all had a similar shyness
And we drove Acuras
One day we learned that there were pretty girls
Who called us the Acura Club
We were amazed those girls thought we were cool

I've become a better version of what I used to be
I achieved some status in the high school hierarchy
Not just in the way it looked
It's in the follow through
Did you lose it in the backseat too?

Daniel had an Acura
Jeremy had an Acura
Rob had an Acura
We were the Acura Club

 

I can remember when I dreamed of distant places
Everything was dandy and so desperate
Schools were things that ran like clockwork
I was given Bash Street worlds
Everything was dandy and was
So good so good good

There's a space in my heart as I look around now
A space in my heart as I look around

All the people all the places
All the dreams and all the faces
Everything was drawn and lettered

Easy justice never bettered
Everything was dandy was
So good so good good
Everything was dandy

I was given Bash Street worlds

I'll never be that age again
I'll never be the same

Nothing needed to make sense
Just to be consistently inventive and invented
And each panel opened up into impossible philosophy
