Follow us around
We ain't afraid of the dark
Cause this is our town!

Ya we take the bus
And we party loud
Cause this is our town!

We're gonna fake it hard till we make it
See how far we can take it
Cause the only time that you'll breathe again
Will be the next time that you come back

Don't even think about shutting this party down
Cause this is our town
Next time you have that feel baby come around
Ya this is our town

Leave your cell phone at home
Won't need it when we are gone

Take a good look around
You'll never be alone

See how far we can take it
Cause the only time that you'll breathe again
Will be the next time that you come back

Next time you have that feel baby come around

Holding onto what is disappearing
