Modern Baseball - Your Graduation

It's been a day or years of me thinkin' 'bout you everyday
Sometimes for hours, sometimes in passing
Saw you from the bottom of the staircase
Stood out for hours as you complained
About how you haven't seen your friends yet
That you're too drunk to stand and
You not knowing if you can love him forever

Bullshit you fucking miss me
There I said it I guess I'll talk to you in a few months
Sitting drunk on the sidewalk
I guess I'll get up
I guess I'll go for a walk
Brushed my shoes against the pavement
I swear this has gotta be the hundredth
Time I thought of you tonight

You weren't the only one
Who thought of us that way
I spend most nights awake
Wide awake

I never thought that I
Oh I would see the day
Where I'd just let you go
Let you walk away
Where I let you walk away

Once you call
You crook, called you a bandit
There ain't no other good damn reason why
Why I would even go missing
For so many months so I was wishing that you
That you would stop pretending
Remember all those countless nights
When I told you I loved you
And you'd never forget it
Oh just forget it

You weren't the only one
Who thought of us that way
I spend most nights awake
Wide awake

I never thought that I
Oh I would see the day
Where I'd just let you go
Let you walk away
Where I let you walk away

You weren't the only one
Who thought of us that way
I spend most nights awake
Wide awake

I never thought that I
Oh I would see the day
Where I'd just let you go
Let you walk away
Go ahead and walk away

“Your Graduation” is the tenth track off Modern Baseball’s album You’re Gonna Miss It All, which became their most popular song with over 23+ million plays on Spotify alone. This is one of the few songs that includes vocals from their drummer Sean Huber. The lyrics are about how your life changes after your graduation. Lots of people who are in your life drift off and you never see them again. However, sometimes this can be a good thing. Specifically, Brendan Lukens speaks about a toxic person in his life who he’s cut out of his life. The title is referring to them graduating to the next phase of their life, in which the singer won’t be a part of. This is shown explicitly at the end of the music video, where a girl is talking to Brendan about her problems with little regard for him, wearing a graduation gown and cap. Finally, Brendan walks away from her, realizing she wasn’t healthy for him.
