Hometown (Reprise)

"Hometown (Reprise)"

v.1
Vonnegut can see my twisted future, from his front porch,
He wrote it down, in my hometown (2x)
Thomas Edison invented the lightbulb, in my hometown,
We light one up and burn it down

ch.
All my dreams have died in this city …
Schenectady, Schenectady!
The city that lights and hauls the world (3x) …
And all our crap to you!

v.2

Things they never change, they stay the same, in my hometown,
It’s burning down to the ground (2x)
The world is tripping and I’m not getting any younger, so I light one up,
in my hometown, and burn it down!
The world is tripping and I’m not getting any younger, so I light one up,
and my hometown is burning now!
