  • No I'm not ready for big bad step in the direction
    No I'm not ready for downtown trash before collection
    Four blocks, run and hide
    Don't walk around at night
    Cityscape city change before they die
    Four blocks I should mention in a song
    If I want to get along to change
    Who doesn't want to change this?

    I know you feel it too
    These words get overused
    When we get up and over it and over them
    Up and over it and over them
    I know you feel it too
    It all seems so untrue
    When you get up and over it and over them
    Uh oh, oh no, uh oh, oh no

    No we're not ready for fair distribution
    Just determine the solution for
    No we're not ready for hell, hell, no, for hell, hell, no
    Four days wide awake wide slide along and say
    Girl's afraid, girl will change, just move away
    Four days that I mention in a song move along
    Get ahead, get her hand to bring home with you

    I know you feel it too
    These words get overused
    When we get up and over it and over them
    Up and over it and over them
    I know you feel it too
    It all seems so untrue
    When you get up and over it and over them
    Uh oh, oh no, uh oh, oh no

    Four ways to remove all the bad that we do
    From the heart and the soul of the city, sad and cold
    Four ways to collect what we say and what we save
    To discard and discover a brand new way

    I know you feel it too
    These words get overused
    When we get up and over it and over them
    Up and over it and over them
    I know you feel it too
    It all seems so untrue
    When you get up and over it and over them
    Up and over it and over them

    I know you feel it too
    These words get overused
    When we get up and over it and over them
    Up and over it and over them
    I know you feel it too
    It all seems so untrue
    When you get up and over it and over them
    Uh oh, oh no, uh oh, oh no
    Uh oh, oh no, uh oh, oh no Writer/s: Hunter Burgan, Sara Keirsten Quin, Tegan Rain Quin
