Just east of the reservoirs where my father told me
Son, they flooded this valley to keep us together
But God damn it, they don't know what they've done
In towns like these they hold parades for queens
So the kings, they rule the night
You worry your mother and I with your constant drinking
Trying to live that life

So they say
Slow yourself down, son
It'll be alright
How is Jessie
Oh God, how I miss her sight
You were one with your restless eyes

I fall asleep to Solberg Greens all being condemned
This used to be a town made up of brothers
But God damn it, they don't know what they left
And all we had, and all we said
It took a Sunday night of sinking in
I swear I'd kill to live them again
I'd kill to live them again

So they say
Slow yourself down, son
It'll be alright
How is Jessie
Oh God, how I miss her sight
You were one with your restless eyes

Shut the lights down and lock up all your doors
Shut the lights down and lock up all your doors
Shut the lights down and lock up all the doors
You're the last one and that's what we're here for

Just east of the reservoirs where my father told me
Son, they flooded this valley to keep us together
But God damn it, they don't know what they've done
Shut the lights out and lock up all the doors
Shut the lights out, shut the lights out
