Track Name: Lover's End Pt. III
The mountain mob is on their way
downtown with the ‘208’,
to seal this summers fate
Mary’s on the city square, she flashes her engagement ring to anyone who cares
All the poets are blunt tonight,
as Bishop’s arms gone dry
The lonely lover’s just arrived
He’s tearing every doorway down
and invites the darkness again
Bridge & Tunnel’s out tonight
all dressed up for one last bout, with dreamy eyes
They carry on as if nothing breaks their hearts
The streets are slitherin’ like a snake
and the shadows are standing guard beneath a killer moon, Mary’s dancing to the beat of the howling mob to Merchant st., one last retreat
The promise of the southbound train
fades with every drink and dies with the rain
Bridge & Tunnel’s out tonight
Stomp those high nosed bastards down in one last fight
Today we’ll make a new Jerusalem
We’ll meet again in cold december
Another night noone will remember
In the distance Mary’s singing
“This is my hometown, yeah this is my home til’ I die”
Under the cold light of God’s street lamp, he walks alone the original supertramp
King of the sticks, mayor of madness
It gets us all in the end, in this part of the world
Ol’ Rubberfeet if you could see us now
Five years have passed since your last bikeride
The city’s outsourced and the factory’s shutting down
Culture’s been boiled down to a chorus they all can sing,
but they’ve stopped believin’ the words
Ol’ Rubberfeet if you could see us now
Ol’ Rubberfeet we really get you now
In this town the only movement
is by the driftwood down the river
Let everyone and everything just drown in the dam and get lost in the deep blue sea
Here’s to all the friends that couldn’t stay
To those that didn’t matter anyway
For years I’ve said goodbye to this old town
The sky’s covered in fire, now I’m done
The chique elite and all the punks meet
Out on the porch, where we’re all just rubberfeet
Burning the streets just like a wildfire
You’d better burn all your maps to get out of this trap
Ol’ Rubberfeet our home has lost its soul
Ol’ Rubberfeet, no heroes in this show
When autumn falls down like a curtain
and all the roads are quite uncertain
The dream postponed just weighs you down
Face it my friend, you are stuck in this lonely town
Here’s to all the friends that couldn’t stay
Cheers to all the ones I wished away
For years I’ve said goodbye to this old town
The sky’s covered in fire, now I’m done
I heard you’re leaving the city
you’re heading back north
For years I have waited for you to come home
But my bags they are all packed and I’m closing that door
And the songs I gave you don’t mean a thing anymore
But you know that I love you
I’m never leaving, this place is my home
I hope you’ve sorted your life out
but I guess you’re alone
I want to call you, but I’m much too proud
I’ll try to catch your face but you’re lost in the crowd
But you know that I love you
Life is but a waiting room
and I guess I’m still waiting there for you
I thought that I was only passing through
From the Sunlit hill to the Singing valley, I feel you everywhere
Life is but a waiting room
and I guess I’m still waiting there for you
I thought that I was only passing by
Some of us burn in beautiful ways
some do believe that these are the days
I’ve wasted these years just looking back
But I’ve saved my best lines for one final act -
A bitter kiss off to the memories of you
Here’s to all the friends that couldn’t stay
And here’s to everyone that found their way
For years I’ve said goodbye to this old town
The sky’s covered in fire, now I’m done
I close my eyes, I’m home at last and all of the lost boys are here by my side
Your love’s got me on the run,
But I’m never leaving my hometown
Your love’s got me on the run,
But I’m never leaving my hometown
