The word is out, this town can hardly breath (whoa oh oh, oh oh)
When air is filled with dust and dying dreams (whoa oh oh, oh oh)
Attaching wings to all the sights
We're makeing sure these buildings fly
W worked to hard to leave without a fight (whoa oh oh, oh oh)

Go ahead and tell everyone you know we stole the show
Right now, this town is for the takeing
We'll bring neon to it's knees
Our time to shine beyond the pavement
We've got everything we need
So turn the music up, you're hearing more then sound
Right now this town is for the takeing, And it's all we'll ever need

The word is out this town it never sleeps (whoa oh oh, oh oh)
A feeding ground for thoes who still believe (whoa oh oh, oh oh)
Kissing curbs to bride our time
On this last night to feel alive
We will never leave this place behind (whoa oh oh, oh oh)

Go ahead and tell everyone you know we stole the show
Right now, this town is for the takeing
We'll bring neon to it's knees
Our time to shine beyond the pavement
We've got everything we need
So turn the music up, you're hearing more then sound
Right now this town is for the takeing, And it's all we'll ever need

Make us, This city's contagious
Caught inside it's pages
We are leaving it all
Hate us, It'll only save us
Stronger then we came up
We are leaving it all

Make us, This city's contagious
Caught inside it's pages
We are leaving it all
Hate us, It'll only save us
Stronger then we came up
We are leaving it all

(we got everything we need)

Go ahead and tell everyone you know we stole the show
Right now, this town is for the takeing
We'll bring neon to it's knees
Our time to shine beyond the pavement
We've got everything we need
So turn the music up, you're hearing more then sound
Right now this town is for the takeing, And it's all we'll ever need

    It seems odd, but because i'm going away to college soon, it kind of feels like its about leaving behind a town that used to seem boring, but now that you're leaving it you see it in a whole new light. Probably wrong, but whatever!
