lyrics

Follow back east before the storm becomes your home.
Get yourself lost, Midwest, find yourself alone.
To the west coast, you know, your faults are getting torn.
Break away!

Oh, wake up! I’ll shut up. Always give up.
You’re just losing something that you never had to lose.
Could have made history.
Could have made something worth saving.
Nothing’s worth saving these days.
You can’t believe the lines scratched from a record’s turning.

You just can’t move away and forget this place.
You just can’t open the gates and let the water in.
You just can’t take our song and sing it the wrong way.
You just can’t. You can’t…
Well, I guess you can.

Split the records or keep them all.
Flood the basement. Set fire to my soul.
With no goodbyes, just want you to know.
When I lost you, I didn’t lose it all.

Well, the road remains faithful to me.
At least as faithful as concrete can be.
But all the cracks are rotting from inside,
and the water rises even if you shut your eyes.

I’ll wait.
The flood is here, choking us.
We lost our words.
