Rain falls down in concentration
I finally come to the realization
That this place I'd once forsaken
Will consume my generation

Countless, endless summers
Opposing everything we've worked for
It was foolishness that made us wish
We could trade it all away

But that was years ago, he shrugs
Back when we smiled and tipped our mugs
A time when boys were men
Friends never stood alone
Do you remember when I said
I'd never walk this town again
But you didn't believe me and now

We cross our bridges only when we reach them
We burn them behind us just to see the smoke
We cross, we burn
We cross and we burn
Day after day this is the nothing we've learned

Progress for their promise
Hold my breath, now we're all hostage
Bite your tongue there son you're just no one
Too young to know the beat

And I'm not asking you for much more
Only something I could strive for
If I keep pride outside my head then
In my heart there will be peace

But that was years ago, he screams
Back when we still believed our dreams
And now we're left to doubt
Outstanding self owed debts
Do you remember when we said
We'd never end up just like them
Lost and bereaved, and now

We cross our bridges only when we reach them
We burn them behind us just to see the smoke
We cross, we burn
We cross and we burn
Day after day is the nothing we've learned
Can't we see what we owe to ourselves?
