Graduated
written by John Hiatt

I used to stumble up to your door
Three thousand kisses on the living room floor
But we don't do that kind of thing anymore
Cause we both graduated

We used to talk until the morning light
Bout everything we did and did not like
Now it's all double blinds and downsized appetites
Cause we both graduated

Yeah we both graduated
And we learned, we learned, we learned to be strong
Now the power's gone
And we turned, we turned, turned out to be wrong
Now we both graduated
Now we both graduated
Now we both graduated

I liked feeling in the dark for you
We watched Apocalypse Now and The Heart of Darkness, too
Melted down barriers and cleaned up the goo
Now we both graduated

No amount of college is gonna give you that jolt
The top of the pyramid is holding all our volts
It's not high technology, it's just nuts and bolts
And we both graduated
Yeah we both graduated

And we learned, we learned, we learned to be strong
Now the power's gone
And we turned, we turned, turned out to be wrong
And we both graduated
Yeah we both graduated

Na na, na nanana, nana nanana na
Na na, na nanana, nana nanana na
Na na, na nanana, nana nanana na

Now as we step out in this frozen world
The amazing Mr Snowjob and his Cryogenic Girl
Living out history but dead to the world
Cause we both graduated
Yeah we both graduated

Na na, na nanana, nana nanana na...
