about

It's a song about your hometown.

lyrics

as i lie here alone a lamp on by my bed
i recount all the days that you've been in my head
all the times that we shared and the wars that we fought
i thought you'd remember me i guess you forgot

it's a shithole that we call home
it's a shithole that we call home
it's a shithole that we call home
it's a shithole that we call home

the sidewalks and storefronts that line the main strip
the working class ghosts who've had enough of it
i gaze upon boys who are covered in dirt
and sweet little girls who like they've been hurt

it's a shithole that we call home
it's a shithole that we call home
it's a shithole that we call home
it's a shithole that we call home

my mother is weeping in the room next to mine
she's telling herself that everything's fine
she thinks that i'm sleeping i'm wide awake
and i don't know how much more of this i can take

it's a shithole that we call home
it's a shithole that we call home
it's a shithole that we call home
it's a shithole that we call home

you gave me hope for the future you filled my dreams full of light
but i'm guessing my dreams weren't as real as they seem and you won't be coming home with me tonight

this life is as hard as a stone or a brick
and home is a hole that's filled in with shit
my heart it grows fonder for you every day
distance makes the heart grow at least that's what they say

it's a shithole that we call home
it's a shithole that we call home
it's a shithole that we call home
it's a shithole that we call home

it's a shithole that we call home
it's a shithole that we call home
it's a shithole that we call home
it's a shithole that we call home
