lyrics

Hometown you broke my heart
You say you knew me well
You talked behind my back
Well you’re a quaint suburban hell
You’ve shown me no respect
You’ve tortured me and my friends till we fled straight west
Where your condescending hands won’t ever reach this far
You’ve turned my father’s father’s hardware store into some crazy Irish Bar
And here I stand your most ungrateful son

Hometown I hate you back!
You’re not the one
Hometown you held me back!
Swear I’m still fun
On the Jersey Turnpike south to Washington

In the darkest bar on the edge of town
That’s where we meet to plan our rounds, now
Have you noticed I’ve been chasing ghosts?
So don’t you wait for me alone

We’re the shadiest bunch, gathered round a dark black box
I pick the lock and the rain pours out, now
Have you noticed I’ve been chasing ghosts?
So don’t you wait for me alone

Before I meet ‘em they’re a purple shade
I let ‘em go when they’re safely grey, now
Have you noticed I’ve been chasing ghosts?
So don’t you wait for me alone

I fought the ghost of rock n’ roll
He swept my feet, I fell to the floor
I scrambled up in time to sing
Would you just lay me to rest? That’s all I need.

Have you noticed I’ve been chasing ghosts?
So don’t you wait for me alone
So don’t you wait for me alone
So don’t you wait for me alone
So don’t you wait for me alone
