Xmas songs no. 26: Blink-182 – “Boxing Day”

Dogs Eating DogsBlink-182 are the only group I know that have a song about the day after Christmas. Well, loosely involving it anyway. This comes from their most recent release, the Dogs Eating Dogs EP, which I reviewed last year.

Let’s get started, the faint and brokenhearted
Hold up, I’ve got something I cannot hide
The worst painkiller, that all-in filler
Apart and departed look in my eyes

It’s sad how far you ran, I’ll search this land
Up through the clouds then back here
We could reignite like fireflies
Like an atom bomb at all hours

I’m empty like the day after Christmas
Swept beneath the wave of your goodbye
You left me on the day after Christmas
There’s nothing left to say, and so good night

I will follow the trail to tomorrow
With my loneliness, with sorrow all through the night
Sons and daughters, mothers and their fathers
Cross the bridges and the waters for clues left behind

There’s nothing left to say, and so good night
Good night
