Let's make this complicated
Thinking is overrated
We're busting out
Of this shitty little town

Green grass and colored lenses
Tear down these picket fences
Burn in our beds
While the city lies sleeping

Why oh why?
Are we starting up and going down?
My oh my
Just the two of us in Nothingtown
Our superhero play
We'll leave this town today
Hold on tighter
With my lighter
Shining through

These city streets are burning
Rose red your wheels are turning
Make me believe
Someday we could really leave

Blindfold a new direction
Stop asking better questions
Don't figure out
That we're never getting out

Why oh why?
Are we starting up and going down?
My oh my
Just the two of us in Nothingtown
Our superhero play
We'll leave this town today
And I'll row it if you steer it
I'll yell until you hear it
Hold on tighter
With my lighter
Shining through

Why oh why?
Are we starting up and going down?
My oh my
Just the two of us in Nothingtown
Our superhero play
Our dreams get in the way
And I'll row it if you steer it
I'll yell until you hear it
Hold on tighter
With my lighter
Shining through

Still stuck in Nothingtown
Still stuck in Nothingtown
Come on let's go
