My neighbors came to me
They asked if I would leave
I've got nowhere to go,
I've got nowhere to go.

My father built this place
In 1928
I've got nowhere to go,
I've got nowhere to go.

Where would I be?
My life is here
Entirely

When it swallowed Father Cap
I realized I was trapped
I've got nowhere to go,
I've got nowhere to go.

I called my sister, said:
"The water's coming in."
I've got nowhere to go.
I've got nowhere to go.

Where would I be?
I'm waiting, dear
Come for me

I hung up the phone
Sat & cleared my throat
I've got nowhere to go,
I've got nowhere to go.
I've got nowhere to go,
I've got nowhere to go.

    Song MeaningThis song is about Eugene Contrubis, a retired police clerk, who drowned during Hurricane Sandy. He tried to wait out the storm, but his house flooded. Before he died, he called his sister and left a voicemail saying "The water's coming in." Father Cap refers to Father Capodanno Boulevard, which was severely damaged during the storm.
