Somewhere in Germany, but I can’t place it
Man, I hate this part of Texas
Close my eyes, fantasize
Three clicks, and I’m home

When I get back I’ll lay around
And I’ll get up and lay back down
Romanticize a quiet life
There’s no place like my room

But you had to go
I know, I know, I know
Like a wave that crashed and melted on the shore
Not even the burnouts are out here anymore
And you had to go
I know, I know, I know

Out in the park, we watch the sunset
Talking on a rusty swing set
After awhile you went quiet, and I got mean
I’m always pushing you away from me
But you come back with gravity
And when I call, you come home
A bird in your teeth

So I gotta go
I know, I know, I know
When the sirens sound, you’ll hide under the floor
But I’m not gonna go down with my hometown in a tornado
I’m gonna chase it
I know, I know, I know
I gotta go now
I know, I know, I know

Driving out into the sun
Let the ultraviolet cover me up
Went looking for a creation myth
Ended up with a pair of cracked lips

Windows down, scream along
To some America first rap, country song
A slaughterhouse, an outlet mall
Slot machines, fear of God

Windows down, heater on
Big bolts of lightning hanging low
Over the coast, everyone’s convinced
It’s a government drone or an alien spaceship

Either way, we’re not alone
I’ll find a new place to be from
A haunted house with a picket fence
To float around and ghost my friends
No, I’m not afraid to disappear
The billboard said, “The end is near”
I turned around, there was nothing there
Yeah, I guess the end is here

The end is here

The end is here

The end is here

The end is here
