Lyrics

LEFT BALTIMORE
A QUARTER TO FIVE
FEELING CRISP AND IN FOCUS
BUT NOT QUITE WHAT YOU MIGHT CALL ALIVE
GET GOING LEST THE STAYING CHOKE US
KNEW EVERYONE
BY FACE OR SIGHT
HANDSHAKES, BACKSLAPS, AD NAUSEUM
EVERY NIGHT EVERY NIGHT
EMPTY AND COLD AS A PADLOCKED MUSEUM

GET OUT OF TOWN
DON'T WANT TO SEE YOU AROUND
EVERY MILE STARTS WITH A FOOT
WE FORGET THE ONES WHO STAY PUT

I LEFT NEW YORK
I'D HAD MY FILL
OF ALL OF THE THINGS THAT YOU'RE THINKING
STARTED SMALL NEVER QUITE GREW
WITH ROOMS AND PATIENCE SHRINKING
LEFT SOMEONE HANGING
I THINK YOU SHOULD TOO
SO YOU DON'T GET SENTIMENTAL
SCRAPE YOURSELF UP YOU'RE OVERLY NEW
YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO BE SO GENTLE

GET OUT OF TOWN
DON'T WANT TO SEE YOU AROUND
EVERY MILE STARTS WITH A FOOT
WE FORGET THE ONES WHO STAY PUT

WHY RETREAT SOUTH
WHEN YOU COULD FLEE WEST
WITH FIFTEEN BOOK AND A WEEKS WORTH OF CLOTHES
GOODBYE TO MY FRIENDS FUCK OFF TO THE REST
SEEMED TO BE WHERE THE DEBRIS BLOWS
THREATEN TO LEAVE
EVERY DAY
FAILURES FORGOTTEN BUT PART OF YOUR SCENT
WHAT WEIGHS MORE TODAY IS REASONS TO STAY
BUT THEY'RE HEAVY AND THEY MAKE A DENT

GET OUT OF TOWN
I DON'T WANT TO SEE YOU AROUND
EVERY MILE STARTS WITH A FOOT
WE FORGET THE ONES WHO STAY PUT
WE FORGET
