The Circle City

Watching all the people I grew up beside
Fade away into something they don't recognize

this city was built for the lonely to run and hide
We gave up our dreams you can see it in our eyes.

and every mornin’ we wonder whats beyond
A circle city and ramshackle town

I got to break free from the drunks and vagabonds

escaping the weight of the fate that holds me down

darling i see the spark of life in you
do you remember the what your mother said?

“promise me this, beware everything you do
if your not careful you’ll wind up dead”

in the ground of a town that don't give a damn

it don't play favorites or on your team
we’re gonna break free from this boring land

even if its only in our dreams.
