This is the first of three songs recorded in one session at Woodshed Studio in October of 2015.


Less than 20 miles away, a city in deep decay
Neighborhoods rot away, they all need to escape
Arson turns the city gray, corruption fans the flame
Law enforcement feels betrayed, sacrificing for meager pay

So they say,
I don't wanna be here anymore
This place isn't like it was before (x2)

Ever since 2008, their departure accelerates
Looking for a better way, they all want to escape
Nowhere for the kids to play, parents looking the other way
Vacant lots become a grave, neighbors walking the streets afraid

And they say
I don't wanna be here anymore
This place isn't like it was before (x2)
It'll never be again
