  • The wind keeps beating on my window
    I haven't slept all night
    That drum just keeps on banging
    They must be buzzing out their minds
    Like bees in a hive
    Tell me when the morning arrives

    This place is just not for me
    I say it all the time
    My friends they just ignore me
    Tell me never mind
    Waiting all your life
    On a slumville sunrise

    Slumville sunrise
    Nobody cares or looks twice
    Shine away in the morning
    Across this place where I was born in
    Every bruise, every flower
    Illuminated by the dawning

    My face upon the concrete
    The dirt is in my mouth
    I clench my fists and feet
    I'm trying to cry out loud
    Make a sound
    Something is keeping me down

    This place is just not for me
    I said a thousand times
    My friends they just ignore me
    Tell me never mind
    Waiting all your life
    On a slumville sunrise

    Slumville sunrise
    Nobody cares or looks twice
    Shine away in the morning
    Across this place where I was born in
    Every bruise, every flower
    Illuminated by the dawning

    This place is just not for me
    I say it all the time
    My friends they just ignore me
    Tell me never mind
    Waiting all your life
    On a slumville sunrise

    Slumville sunrise
    Nobody cares or looks twice
    Shine away in the morning
    Across this place where I was born in
    Every bruise, every flower
    Illuminated by the dawning

    Every bruise, every flower
