lyrics

Let’s blow this town
New York doesn’t seem so new
Since I met you
Since I met you
Let’s burn it down
Turn Ithaca to Rome
We can’t go back home
We can’t go back home

I haven’t taken out these contacts for three days
We haven’t left this interstate for two
I don’t know about you
But I could sure use some food

All the shittiest American towns are named after places in Europe
That we will never visit
It’s intrinsically horrific

It’s not like we went and killed a man
But what we did, yeah, well it was still pretty bad
It was still pretty bad
It’s not like we went and shot a guy
But what we did, yeah, well it still keeps me up at night
It still keeps me up at night

We stop at a diner Coeur d'Alene
Order three-quarters of the menu
Does disappointment feel like heartburn
In the bathroom of a greasy spoon

All the shittiest American towns are named after places in Europe
That we will never visit
It’s intrinsically horrific
All the dingiest American towns still retain their names
From the people who were conquered
What a prestigious honor

It’s not like we decapitated senior citizens
But what we did, yeah, well it was not a good thing
It was not a good thing
It’s not like we murdered kids for fun
But what we did, yeah, well it still keeps us on the run
It still keeps us on the run

I thought the outlaw life would be more romantic (more romantic)
I had a change of heart, but no change of clothes
I thought the outlaw life would be more romantic (more romantic)
But this morning as I was pissing in a half-empty red bull can I decided there’s more cons than pros
There's more cons than pros

I thought the outlaw life would be more romantic (more romantic)
I had a change of heart, but no change of clothes
I always thought the outlaw life would be more romantic (more romantic)
But today I tallied up the things that I will leave behind and decided there’s more cons than pros
There's more cons than pros

More romantic
More romantic
More romantic
More romantic
