The mountain mob is on their way
Downtown with the '208'
To seal this summers fate
Mary's on the city square
She flashes her engagement ring
To anyone who cares
All the poets are blunt tonight
As Bishop's arms gone dry
The lonely lover's just arrived
He's tearing every doorway down
And invites the darkness again

Bridge & Tunnel's out tonight
All dressed up for one last bout
With dreamy eyes, they carry on
As if nothing could breaks their hearts

The streets are slitherin' like a snake
And the shadows are standing guard
Beneath a killer moon
Mary's dancing to the beat
Of the howling mob to Merchant St.
One last retreat
The promise of the southbound train
Fades with every drink
And dies with the rain

Bridge & Tunnel's out tonight
Stomp those high nosed bastards down
In one last fight, today we'll make a new Jerusalem

We'll meet again in cold December
Another night no one remembers
In the distance Mary's singing
"This is my hometown, yeah this is my home til' I die"

Why does the world spin
Why does the sun shine
Why does the world spin
Why does the sun shine

Under the cold light of God's street lamp
He walks alone the original Supertramp
King of the sticks, mayor of madness
It gets us all in the end, in this part of the world

Ol' Rubberfeet, if you could see us now

Five years have passed since your last bike ride
The city's outsourced and the factory's shutting down
Culture's been boiled down to a chorus they all can sing
But they've stopped believin' the words

Ol' Rubberfeet, if you could see us now
Ol' Rubberfeet, we really get you now

In this town the only movement
Is by the driftwood down the river
Let everyone and everything just drown in the dam
And get lost in the deep blue sea

Here's to all the friends that couldn't stay
To those that didn't matter anyway
For years I've said goodbye to this old town
The sky's covered in fire, now I'm done

The chic elite and all the punks meet
Out on the porch, where we're all just rubberfeet
Burning the streets just like a wildfire
You'd better burn all your maps to get out of this trap

Ol' Rubberfeet our home has lost its soul
Ol' Rubberfeet, no heroes in this show

When autumn falls down like a curtain
And all the roads are quite uncertain
The dream postponed just weighs you down
Face it my friend, you are stuck in this lonely town

Here's to all the friends that couldn't stay
Cheers to all the ones I wished away
For years I've said goodbye to this old town
The sky's covered in fire, now I'm done

I heard you're leaving the city, you're heading back north
For years I have waited for you to come home
But my bags they are all packed and I'm closing that door
And the songs I gave you don't mean a thing anymore

But you know that I love you, you know that it's true
You know that I love you, you know that I do
You know that I love you, you know that it's true
You know that I love, you know that I love you
Love you

I'm never leaving, this place is my home
I hope you've sorted your life out, but I guess you're alone
I want to call you, but I'm much too proud
I'll try to catch your face, but you're lost in the crowd

But you know that I love you, you know that it's true
You know that I love you, you know that I do
You know that I love you, you know that it's true
You know that I love, you know that I love you
Love you

Life is but a waiting room
And I guess I'm still waiting there for you
I thought that I was only passing through
From the sunlit hill to the singing valley, I feel you everywhere

Life is but a waiting room
And I guess I'm still waiting there for you
I thought that I was only passing by

Some of us burn in beautiful ways
Some do believe that these are the days
I've wasted these years just looking back
But I've saved my best lines for one final act:
A bitter kiss off to the memories of you

Here's to all the friends that couldn't stay
And here's to everyone that found their way
For years I've said goodbye to this old town
The sky's covered in fire, now I'm done

I close my eyes, I'm home at last
And all of the lost boys are here by my side
I close my eyes, I'm home at last
And all of the lost boys are here by my side

Your love's got me on the run,
But I'm never leaving my hometown
Your love's got me on the run,
But I'm never leaving my hometown.
