Let's slip off the rope let's cut the cord I can't take no more
Babe we gotta get out of here

There's nothing left but ash in my mouth this ain't our town
Best time we hit the road

We won't be seen we'll get up long before sunrise

I'll hold the bottle of gasoline, kiss me and light the match

The buildings continue to rise, but The City died

The building continues but there's no water and the state’s on fire
Build ever higher on shaky land, build on bay fill and sand

The ocean will rise, slip-strike goodbye

No more will we be seen haunting the old neighborhood

It's no good to scratch and claw, burn the memory down and leave for good
