For about four years I've hated this town
So much I just want to get out
Since graduation, was long ago
Please somebody get me out of this hole

Cuz I don't want to get stuck in here
When I am 34, just talkin bout high school years
No I don't wanna be there
I feel so stuck right here
back and forth, side to side, oh my dear

My foot to the floor
I will drive to the place
Where I can kick it with friends through the night
A place we'll talk about now and the past what the future holds
Hangin out with not much to do
Just aimless with each other is what we do

Cuz this ain't where it's at
My friend would second that
And I got to admit sometimes it's pretty sad

But it's Like we're our own brat pack
We're always kickin back
Nobody can take that
And that is that, it's like it's all we have

Comon I say, Oh Oh get on the floor
Dance till you got no more
I know it's there somewhere
Don't worry I'll be there to rock the party all night
To rock into this night our fists in the air
Fightin a good fight

Cuz we were singing along to Peter Gabriel's sledgehammer song
You know it's clear that tonight we belong in this place
So I stand back to reflect in this town I hate
At least just for a second I think I might stay

This ain't where it's at
My friend would second that
And I got to admit sometimes it's pretty sad

But it's Like we're our own brat pack
We're always kickin back
Nobody can take that
And that is that

So I'll run away to the hopes that I have
But still I fall asleep in the arms of my past
And when I wake so helpless of thinking of that
Just lay back down, again everyday

So maybe later today I'll know
What I will do with my life as I know it
Maybe for now I'll drive back to that place where I belong
And hope to God it hasn't changed

This ain't where it's at
My friend would second that
And I got to admit sometimes it's pretty sad

But it's Like we're our own brat pack
We're always kickin back
Nobody can take that

This ain't where it's at
My friend would second that
And I got to admit sometimes it's pretty sad

But it's Like we're our own brat pack
We're always kickin back
Nobody can take that, it's like it's all we have
