Roaring 20s

Album: Pray For the Wicked (2018)
  • Broadway is black like a sinkhole
    Everyone raced to the suburbs
    And I'm on the rooftop with curious strangers
    This is the oddest of summers
    Maybe I'll medicate, maybe inebriate
    Strange situations, I get anxious
    Maybe I'll smile a bit, maybe the opposite
    But pray that they don't call me thankless

    My tell-tale heart's a hammer in my chest
    Cut me a silk-tied tourniquet

    This is my roaring, roaring 20's
    I don't even know me
    Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I wanna go home
    Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I wanna go home
    My roaring, roaring 20s
    I don't even know me
    Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I wanna go home
    Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I want, I wanna go home

    Oscars and Emmy's and Grammy's
    Everyone here is a trophy
    And I'm sipping bourbon
    The future's uncertain
    The past on the pavement below me
    Maybe I'll elevate, maybe I'm second rate
    So unaware of my status
    Maybe I'm overjoyed, maybe I'm paranoid
    Designer me up in straight jackets

    My tell-tale heart's a hammer in my chest
    Cut me a silk-tied tourniquet

    This is my roaring, roaring 20's
    I don't even know me
    Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I wanna go home
    Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I wanna go home
    My roaring, roaring 20s
    I don't even know me
    Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I wanna go home
    Roll me like a blunt, 'cause I want, I wanna go home

    Hallucinations only mean that your brain is on fire
    If it's Lord of the Flies in my mind tonight
    I don't know if I will survive
    Lighters up if you're feelin' me
    Fade to black if you're not mine
    'Cause I just need a sign, or a signal inside

    This is my roaring, roaring 20s
    I don't even know me
    Roll me a blunt 'cause I wanna go home
    Roll me a, roll me a blunt

    This is my roaring, roaring 20s
    I don't even know me
    Roll me like a blunt 'cause I wanna go home
    Roll me like a blunt 'cause I want, I wanna go home

    I wanna go home Writer/s: BENJAMIN HILL FREEDLANDER, BRENDON BOYD URIE, GARY MICHAEL LINDSAY, JAKE SINCLAIR, JENNY YOUNGS, KENNETH AARON HARRIS, MAYNARD FERGUSON, SAM HOLLANDER, STEPH JONES, TOBIAS WINCORN
