lyrics

Among these trailers and a fireworks shop
where I spent my youth trying to dodge the cops
It's just a cycle man it never stops
until all of us are dead and gone

I ain't saying that we do it right
all that I'm saying is we gotta fight
You gotta take what you get
cause it's all that you got

I'd like to watch this town
burn to the ground
Until there's nothing left
there wasn't much anyhow

My buddy Randy robbed a liquor store
and for my life I couldn't say what for
He wasn't looking for money
probably just needed a score

For $60 and a fifth of Jack
a pellet pistol in a paper sack
As he turned to walk out
he took two shots in the back

I'd like to watch this town
burn to the ground
Until there's nothing left
there wasn't much anyhow

Unfinished buildings with abandoned beams
and people holding on to fading dreams
We cling to hope that things
ain't as bad as they seem

I ain't saying that we do it right
all that I'm saying is we gotta fight
You gotta take what you get
cause it's all that you got

I'd like to watch this town
burn to the ground
Until there's nothing left
there wasn't much anyhow
