  1. [Chorus]

    Small stakes

    Give you blues

    But you don't feel taken

    Don't think you've been used

    [Verse 1]

    'Cause it's alright Friday night to Sunday

    It feels alright, keeps your mind on the page

    Oh yeah, small stakes ensure you the minimum blues

    But you don't feel taken and you don't feel abused

    Small stakes tell you that there's nothing can do

    Can't think big, can't think past one or two and alright!

    Yeah, alright!

    [Chorus]

    Me and my friends

    Sell ourselves

    Short but feel

    Very well

    [Verse 2]

    We feel fine

    Aw, we feel fine

    And small time danger in your midsize car

    I don't dig the Stripes but I'll go for Har Mar

    The big innovation on the minimum wage

    Is lines up your nose but your life on the page, so c'mon

    Tell me I'm wrong

    [Chorus]

    Small stakes

    Will kill time

    When you're stuck

    In back of the line

    [Verse 3]

    It feels alright Friday night to Sunday

    Aw, it feels alright, keeps your mind on the page

    And small stakes bring you where you're caught in a rut

    You feel so uptight, you just want to throw it all up

    And small stakes leave you with the minimum blues

    Can't think big, can't think past one or two, so c'mon

  2. Britt said it was about people who get too comfortable thinking small. "Me and my friends sell ourselves short but feel very well," "Can't think big can't think past one or two." Hence, "not digging the Stripes but going for Har Mar" is an additional comment on settling for less/living in a smaller world.

    I sound like an asshole, but I'm just excited to quote Britt.

  3. Well, in my oppinion, acknowledgement by your fans is the only proper acknowledgement there is. When bands start getting overhyped and blown way out of proportion, its when the quality of their music starts to decline.
    Anyway, enjoy your records dude 😉
