    Sweet summer night and I'm stripped to my sheets
    Foreman is leaking; my AC squeaks
    And a voice from the clock says "You're not gonna get tired"
    My bed is a pool and the wall's on fire
    Soak my head in the sink for a while
    It chills my neck and it makes me smile
    But my bones gotta move and my skin's gotta breathe
    You pick up the phone and I'm so relieved

    You slide down the stairs to the eager street
    And the sun is left with slippery feet
    And I want to walk around with you (x2)
    (And be here with you)

    It doesn't really matter, I'll go where you feel
    Home for the breeze, get a midnight meal
    I'll point in the windows, you point out the parks
    Rip off your sleeves and I'll ditch my socks
    Dance to the songs from the cars as they pass
    Weave through the cardboard, smell that trash
    Walkin' around in our summertime clothes
    Know where to go where our bodies go

    And we'll breath the dawn in its morning blues
    With purple yawns, you'll be sleeping soon
    And I want to walk around with you (x2)

    When the sun goes down we'll go out again! (x16)

    Don't cool off
    I like your warmth

    Let's leave the sound of the heat for the sound of the rain
    It's easy to sleep when it wets my brain
    It covers my rest with a saccharine sheen
    Kissing the wind through my window screen
    But restless is causeless and I cannot hide
    So much of my mind that it spills outside
    Do you wanna go stroll down a financial street?
    Our clothes might get soaked
    But the buildings sleep

    And there's no one pushing for a place
    As we enter at an easy pace
    And I want to walk around with you (x2)
    I want to walk around with you (x4)

    Just you, just you, just you, just you (x4)

    Last year I gave away my wrist band on the last day to some guy at in-n-out. I'm not sure how it worked out for him tho.

    My friends were eating breakfast at IHop last year on Sunday morning, and these 4 dudes gave them their VIP wrist bands...said they weren't going to the festival on the last day. We already had general admission wrist bands, so that was pretty sweet.

    Also, 5 years ago I forgot my ID and we strategically peeled off a Heineken bracelet from one of my friends so that I could enjoy a beer later in the day. I haven't let this happen again.

    OK, here's the real deal holyfield:

    1. yes people managed to do sell their wristbands successfully last year. GV has said this year the wristbands are different. Whatever worked last year may (and probably) won't work this year. Last year was a first as far as 3 day festival passes for coachella and it was a learning experience.

    2. honestly trying to figure out how to cheat the system on coachella's official forum is not really the best strategy. do some research outside of GV's channels.

    3. you asked, you got a response. let it go, you're just annoying everyone


    best of luck, you're taking a risk by switching wristbands, don't be surprised if it doesn't work out for you as you intended.

    Ha, I do . . . I kept my wristband on from LiB and went to a show a few days later. I was able to get into the VIP area, because I still had on a sparkly wristband on from an unrelated show.

    That was awesome.

    I feel like in light of the high demand for tickets this year, coachella should take up a wrist band recycling policy. If you leave the festival early you can trade in your wrist band for a t-shirt and then they can re-sell a new wrist band to people looking to get into the festival at a reduced rate without it going to waste...win win right?

    I feel like if people leave the festival early no one should take their place and the capacity will be lighter for the rest of us inside.

    When it's a collective group of people who like this, then it's not self-centered, it's for the betterment of our community.

    Over the shitty comments... Straight Asnwer: YES it works. Just be careful. If you can keep it from breaking and slide a hand out: GREAT! Switch people and get 'em in! I used white gum to hold it in place while I went through the gates and put it away once I got inside.
