Jon sparks his cigarette
Hands it off to Michael while he asks aloud if he should take Liz home again
Mike just spits, and grins
And drinking in his smoke tells Jon "it's time you learned to swim, if you know what I mean"

Pre chorus:
Sometimes your friends will be your fix
Sometimes your upturned fist
If you are learning to live like this
Then I can teach you to live like this
Like this
Like this, like this...

Shoot right between the eyes
With a message from on high
There's no tomorrow till you've earned it
Light fires through the night
I'm not trying to just survive
I want to live cuz I deserve it

Don't you worry
Don't you worry
The goon squad gonna show you how
Don't you worry
Oh don't worry
The goon squad gonna show you how

Goon squad shows you how
To live life free of chains
Shackles on the ground, outstretch your arms, then turn around and find you're home again
And when you get there you will see
The friends you've made along the way start to look like family if you know what I mean


How to feel it in your bloodstream
Louder than your heartbeat
Ill teach you what the words mean
If you'd just sing along
Feel it in your bloodstream
Louder than your heartbeat
Teach me what the words mean and I'll join you singing (x2)
