  • This town of sober answers
    Feel free to watch your city
    Become more than a sitcom appendix
    As we walk, the streets are bleeding
    From the tedium that they're bringing
    The stars will pave your journey
    To another x-rated love story

    The hills have become your idles
    The hills have become your idles

    Stand up
    We're falling back again
    We'll find something better
    We'll do anything
    (This town has killed us both)

    Stand up
    We're falling back again
    We'll find something better
    We'll do anything
    (This town has killed us both)
    Stand up cause this town is failing us

    This town is shifting power
    Covered under useless ratings
    Let's decide how to feed your children
    Let's appall to the sound they're scripting
    Seeing smile of the pain you're buying
    Will it hurt when we live in paradise?
    We'll wash it off on sunset

    Seeing smile of the pain you're buying
    Seeing smile of the pain you'll buy

    Stand up
    We're falling back again
    We'll find something better
    We'll do anything
    (This town has killed us both)

    Stand up
    We're falling back again
    We'll find something better
    We'll do anything
    (This town has killed us both)
    Stand up cause this town is failing us

    This might be your chance
    And when you find them running with
    Your gun in hand

    Stand up
    We're falling back again
    We'll find something better
    We'll do anything
    (This town has killed us both)

    Stand up
    We're falling back again
    We'll find something better
    We'll do anything
    (This town has killed us both)
