So I’ve been through a lot of fire
White with hate, blue with desire
I grew up fast and I grew up alone
And now that I am older, I feel a little weaker
But I’m strong enough at least to take you home

Andrew, let’s run from the city
Our friends all got stuck here
Our blood will go gray either way
And even jobs here cost money
We’ll make it as prophets if only we learn how to play
Remember her bending her big blue eyes all over you?
Of course you do!
But check out the glow from the third row
Sure, I’ll give you the keys
And you can take your pretty victory home

The night we rose up you were rotten, girl
You dressed up in gold, you held onto your drink like a knife
â€�There’re certain things left unsaid,â€� you said
Well, I guess I’d forgotten I blew like a storm through your life
To see you lifted from the smoke I’d wade any water
So just come live with me outside this city
I don’t know where we are
But I’m sure that somehow we’ll get home

There are people I know but I don’t know, no
Lynn, how’s your mother? And where did your friend put the car?

A girl with a ribcage of roses
Offered me comfort, but I couldn’t offer these arms

Sarah, you’re cute but you’re druggy
We can’t travel the world, but I’m glad I at least took you home

Looks like your wound is fatal, but I’m all right
Now that you’re not part of my plans tonight
You pull those shades down tight right across your eyes
Oh, did you think that I was joking like your other guys?

So I twist and tremble in pale green light
And you will not be part of my plans tonight
I took you for a common criminal
Oh, how was I to know that you were a professional?

So you can leap back at me with all your might
But you will not be part of my plans tonight
I laid the rails and I am spouting steam
And I'll be holding out my fingers in your next blue dream

Yes, I’m temporary, but I’m all right
And you will not be part of my plans tonight
I had some hope for you and I told you so
But you told me to get going, so my darling, I am ready to go
