And everybody’s going down
And everybody’s going down
To the sorrow town….

We sneak through the tree but can’t get close enough to see
We ride our bikes to the lights but the cops are thick as thieves
Steve found a bone but it’s raccoon plus he’s an idiot
They hauled it all away to this day people say there’s loot


Family members come
To stare out at the fields
Disaster freaks detectors beep
At the sadness buried deep
At the sadness buried deep
