  • Hometown remind me
    Where I come from
    Before the days of the hit and run
    Running from the blue blights
    Jumping trains in midnight
    Never more alone or more alive
    Hat tricks in the stadium
    Baby look how far we've come
    Casualties are littered all the way

    'Cause we got miles left to go
    To a place that I don't know
    They told me the ground was gold but I can't see it
    One last time through the woods
    In my old neighborhood
    It tastes so bittersweet I can't believe it

    Hands in the cement
    Stickers on the ceiling
    Falling asleep to the werewolves
    Pop the clutch on the v-dub
    Throwing pebbles at your window
    As we roll away in the pouring rain
    Call at you all the tower lights
    Singing out in the holy night
    Lord tell me you're not done with me

    'Cause we got miles left to go
    To a place that I don't know
    They told me the ground was gold but I can't see it
    One last time through the woods
    In my old neighborhood
    It tastes so bittersweet I can't believe it

    Innocence yeah die slowly
    We're all falling, in the glory
    Innocence yeah die slowly
    We're all falling down

    Hometown remind me
    Where I come from
    Before the days of the hit and run
    The moss and the pine trees
    I can taste the caffeine
    How the fiery blaze when you look at me Writer/s: MAT KEARNEY
