Suburban War

Let’s go for a drive
See the town tonight
There’s nothing to do but I’ll unwind when I’m with you

This town’s so strange
They built it to change
And while we’re sleeping all the streets, they rearrange

And my old friends, we were so different then
Before your war against the suburbs began
Before it began

And now the music divides us into tribes
You grew your hair so I grew mine
They said the past won’t rest
Until we jump the fence and leave it behind

And my old friends, I can remember when
You cut your hair
We never saw you again
Now the cities we live in
Could be distant stars
And I search for you
In every passing car

The nights are warm
Yeah, the nights are warm
I’ve been living in the shadows of your song
Living in the shadows of your song

In the suburbs I, I learned to drive
People told me we would never survive
So grab your mother’s keys we leave tonight

You started a war
That you can’t win
They keep erasing all the streets we grew up in

Now the music divides us into tribes
You choose your side I’ll choose my side

All my old friends, they don’t know me now
All my old friends, are staring through me now

All my old friends, wait
