Lyrics

My favorite bar is Shadracks cause it’s a piece of shit

And for that very reason, I feel like I fit in

No they don’t have a T.V. cause they can’t pay the bills

Oh yes sometimes I feel like a dive bar on wheels

 

Now Shadracks is the kinda place with holes punched through the walls

And signs for dollar beers on broken bathroom stalls

The foosball table’s tilted so one side always wins

But I play it again hoping it will be different in the end

 

Oh Shadracks was established in 1971

And though they say that I’m young

We both feel past our prime

If you’re a dive so am I

 

The Christmas lights about the bar haven’t moved in thirty years

And neither have the hairstyles of the people drinking beers

Yeah maybe its a place thats already torn apart

That reminds us of our hearts and we both beat on and on and on

 

The owners just ignore the things they need to fix

They’d rather take a load off, they’d rather shoot the shit

Well me I am the same way about the holes punched through my life

I just let them slide ‘cause tomorow I’ll have time

 

Oh Shadracks was established in 1971

And though they say that I’m young

We both feel past our prime

If you’re a dive so am I

If you're a dive so am I

If you're a dive so am I
