Lyrics
Fallin' down the streets of Marigold
Follow my feet where they go
Thinkin' 'bout a home I used to know
It's like a door's been slammed closed

I'll never fix my life till now
Colors sensing your movement now
Money might get you a seat in the front row
But it won't buy you what I know

Oh, oh, oh, oh
I hear the music coming through the floorboards
Oh, oh, oh, oh
You said music don't live here anymore

Whatever happened to my hometown?
Part of growing up was falling down
We used to dance until the morning light
We used to live, we used to love life

Whatever happened to my hometown?
Got knocked out but we ain't coming around
We used to burn until the morning light
Now we're just working for the shirt and tie
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Now we're just working for the shirt and tie
Oh, oh, oh, oh
But it's not right

Crawling up your life in a sleeping bag
Setting up your tent on the main drag
There was a day I though I understood
Now I see my own face underneath the same hood

Did we loose what we were coming from?
We used to sing till our voices were gone
Drinking our fill from a half-filled cup
Turning it up 'cause it's not enough
Oh, oh, oh, oh
I hear the music coming through the floorboards
Oh, oh, oh, oh
You said music don't live here anymore

Whatever happened to my hometown?
Part of growing up was falling down
We used to dance until the morning light
We used to live, we used to love life

Whatever happened to my hometown?
Got knocked out but we ain't coming around
We used to burn until the morning light
Now we're just working for the shirt and tie
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Now we're just working for the shirt and tie
Oh, oh, oh, oh
But it's not right

Whatever happened to my hometown?
Got knocked out but we ain't coming around
We used to burn until the morning light
Now we're just working for the shirt and tie
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Now we're just working for the shirt and tie
Oh, oh, oh, oh
But it's not right
