Shaun Brumder (Colin Hanks) is a teenager from affluent Orange County, California. Although bright and intelligent, he has very little interest in education or studying, instead trying to lead a carefree SoCal lifestyle of surfing, drinking, and partying. A turning point comes when Shaun's best friend Lonny (Bret Harrison) is killed in a surfing accident, causing Shaun to rethink his own life. One day, he finds a novel on the beach by the author Marcus Skinner, which quickly inspires him to become a writer. Upon learning that Skinner is an English professor at Stanford University, Shaun makes it his goal to attend Stanford and study under him, seeing it as an opportunity to escape from his superficial life in Orange County.
Orange County is included in the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, CA Metropolitan Statistical Area. Thirty-four incorporated cities are located in the county; the newest is Aliso Viejo, which was incorporated in 2001. Anaheim was the first city, incorporated in 1870, when the region was still part of neighboring Los Angeles County. Whereas most population centers in the United States tend to be identified by a major city, there is no defined urban center in Orange County. It is mostly suburban except for some traditionally urban areas at the centers of the older cities of Anaheim, Fullerton, Huntington Beach, Orange, and Santa Ana. There are several edge city-style developments such as Irvine Business Center, Newport Center, and South Coast Metro.
Chorus: I think that i'm falling slowly and i don't wanna get up I kinda like it down here all I can do is look up When noone's looking i can do exactly what I want I'm going to Orange County I'm going to Orange County Heh it's kinda risky When me and friends start drinking whiskey Now we spinning and grinning and feeling frisky Throwing bottles out the window like a frisbee Outside yelling at the stars tipsy Trying to find God screaming where is he? Friends grabbing on my sleeves trying to save me Covering my mouth and thought that He gave me And now we sipping the room taking shots like medicine Calming the storms up in the head again Way ahead of excedrine slipping feeling words Spill out the mouth until we freaking hit the bed again And I used to to youth group that what I thinking In the corner with my head down sobbing the truth I got my n***s in the kitchen drinking around the stove Laughing loud and hugging and the 'bout to explode Chorus That's when i stand crooked start cussing at my friends Swinging my fist take another shot of Hen Everything seems right everything seems frantic Everything gleams slow motion like trantic Take another sip piss on the carpet All I hear is fuzz all i feel is buzz All I need is Love all i need is hope Hanging on the walls and i'm trying not to float Trying not to choke up swallowing my throw up Watching CKY with my homeys tore up Get a call from my girl and i'm trying to explain That my love in the end only succumes to pain Then I hang up in mid thought and i feel caught In the middle of a hurricane spinning in a loft Then i start pop locking blowing out my snot In the bathroom crying and can't stop lying Chorus Oh God why does it have to be this way Never again I promise never this much make it stop ok Make it stop Dude please I'll do whatever you say But let me finish off my Alize
