The city lights are down
From the highway to the shore
It's time to take this town
And turn it into something more

There's a spirit in our lungs
That we've had since we first began
It's enough to make 25 people
Feel like a marching band

"Open your eyes boy, open your eyes boy"
But what am I supposed to see, when nothing is what it seems?
"They never wanted you boy, we never wanted you boy"
Sometimes I hate this scene
Are we all just living a dream?

Curtains rise, the buildings shine
A light that you can't miss
Our stage will be the skyline
We don't have much, but we got this

Raise the highway, set the streetlights
Broke down, penniless
But we own this (we own this)
We own this city

Oh
What do you want?
Is it something I got?
I got one chance comin' and it's gonna make you run or believe

Who will give us what we need when need is all we have?
Failure is the theme
And all I wanna do is scream:
"How do we get this started?"
How do we get this started?

Raise the highway, set the streetlights
Broke down, penniless
But we own this (we own this)
We own this city
Voices like blood at the pavement
Care not for the consequence
'Cause we own this (we own this)
We own this city

Raise the highway, set the streetlights
Broke down, penniless
But we own this (we own this)
We own this city
Voices like blood at the pavement
But care not for the consequence
'Cause we own this (we own this)
We own this city
