lyrics

This town is chaos when it turns to night,
All this city’s water features are safe to swim, right?
You said to me when we got drunk by the lake!

Do you remember the times we play-faught in Vic Square,
Got drunk at a house party, played truth or dare?
There’s not much else to do than drink a brew with your friends.

Give it up for the small town outcasts,
Pretty soon they’ll be the hometown heroes.
Burning Bridges is what we’re known for,
Sinking ships with the best intentions.
I hope you know,
Just how far we’ve come,
To say to you,
We’re never coming back.

So here we are again, playing sweaty clubs,
Where people are just more focused on getting drunk,
And double drop, Chasing tail ‘til the sun comes up.

Skating down on North Terrace,
Getting stopped by every guard,
And They Say (and they say)
Just a bunch of reckless kids is all that we are.

Give it up for the small town outcasts,
Pretty soon they’ll be the hometown heroes.
Burning Bridges is what we’re known for,
Sinking ships with the best intentions.
I hope you know,
Just how far we’ve come,
To say to you,
We’re never coming back.

Hanging out with my friends on the east end,
Playing shows, getting drunk on the west end,
Freestyle raps and bottle caps,
These are the times that I share with my best friends,
The cops pull us over for drunken disorderly,
Get up in there face like Yeezy taught me,
Your mother always warned you about Hindley Street,
‘Cause we are the guys she ain’t want you to meet.

Give it up for the small town outcasts,
Pretty soon they’ll be the hometown heroes.
Burning Bridges is what we’re known for,
Sinking ships with the best intentions.
I hope you know,
Just how far we’ve come,
To say to you,
We’re never coming back.
