The Lawrence Arms are a punk rock trio from Chicago, formed in 1999. The lineup consists of Brendan Kelly (vocals & bass), Chris McCaughan (vocals & guitar), and Neil Hennessy (drums). They have released five full-length albums and are currently signed to Epitaph. Their music and lyrics exhibit their propensity for juxtaposing references from history and literature with American pop culture. The band takes its name from a building the members resided in (and were later evicted from) called the Lawrence Arms, which was located in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago.

    Shall we dance?
    Or maybe just limp around?
    These feet are cold and beat,
    and strangers to the ground
    The sound of the kick is arousing

    So you're fading kinda fast
    Like the red brake lights rushing past
    This more than waking up when you're still at the bar
    Lurking around with the queens after dark
    We've come a long way just to end up lost

    Is there any hope for us, or are the rumors true?
    Are we just the mulch and kindling that accrues?
    Can we recover from this?

    I've smelled regression wafting up from these shores

    I scratched my name into the table.
    The knife and phone just f**king lay there.
    I orchestrate a day of routine elements.

    And in the end we'll burn in history.
