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 Fat Wreck Chords. 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 sinking kinda fast,
    that a great big light was your past.
    this is more than waking up when you're still at the bar
    hanging around with the queens after dark
    we've come a long way to end up lost,

    What did you scream into your telephone?
    I'm a shit stain slave with a grind of my own.
    I work day and night, less respect than a Juggalo.
    I'm frying on the outside and frozen in the center.
    I'm telling you to watch out for my temper.

    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 seen expressions in department stores.
    I've smelled regression wafting up from these shores.

    I scratched my name into the table.
    The knife and phone just fucking lay there.
    I orchestrate a day of routine elements.
    These letters are are so old and faded.
    And in the end we'll burn in history.
