Thanks to the downfall of family values there ain't no virgins left in this town to sacrifice I guess our parents should thank the devil for making us having sex it seems to be the thing that saved our lives Chorus: Hallelujah, I won't grow old in this town In ten years we'll barely be around And when the 90s finally come we'll be alright We're gonna bid this town goodnight Praise god from whom all blessings flow Praise her for hell below Horn or halo, angel - demon It's the same Light and darkness, pain and laughter Scars that go or stay I'll stick with you every moment Either Way Chorus Here's to the freaks and the faggots The slutty girl next door The kingdom of god is yours Don't fear a thing my darling The paranoid satanic We'll love each other Through the panic

Could we please take a walk and catch up a bit it's been so long since I've seen your face and even though we both know time has changed us, for sure at least we still have a familiar place Chorus: And Pougkeepsie, New York, We love you You're the only thing left of us now And the memories sting, like a sweet autumn fling Poughkeepsie, stay with us somehow your parents protested at the school board meeting don't you dare put this filth in their heads and we laughed and we moaned, we smiled and we groaned as we did dirty things in their bed Chorus The witch in the woods she would walk behind the paper mill graveyard where we first kissed and i still hear her voice, leaving me with a choice you can grow old, or stay young instead chorus

Broke your bones and bottle on the side of the road we graduate tomorrow, then who knows how it goes nobody's gonna care when we march down the gym floor I thought you may have killed him cuz you punched him so hard The ground drank the beer and the blood from your arm Those fuckers should have known not to push you around anymore Chorus We'll be much better in the years ahead of us you mark my words, we'll take this world by storm the past it will be nothin' but somethin' we can laugh about We'll be much better in the years ahead of us Kick the ass of the thought of a boring day the past it will be nothin' but somethin' we can live without We've hung around each other ever since we were kids hid your dirty magazines underneath my bed I never got an A and you never got below one But none of that will matter when tomorrow is gone and forget about the days and the thing we did wrong we'll find an unmarked way to become someone Chorus I'll pick up my new girlfriend tomorrow evening We'll kiss in the darkness of the cinema screen and slip my hands, my fingers underneath her dress No, I don't give a damn if the audience is Bothered by our laughter, by us stupid kids I wanna take her with me into the years ahead Chorus

Broke your bones and bottle on the side of the road we graduate tomorrow, then who knows how it goes nobody's gonna care when we march down the gym floor I thought you may have killed him cuz you punched him so hard The ground drank the beer and the blood from your arm Those fuckers should have known not to push you around anymore Chorus We'll be much better in the years ahead of us you mark my words, we'll take this world by storm the past it will be nothin' but somethin' we can laugh about Before she figures me out, before she learns my motives i've got to use the time left, make sure that she does notice that the two of us have, that the two of us both have an iggy pop cassette she flew in from foreign lands to learn about our treasures tattooed fast food elvis stamps, mercedes benz and leather clad girls on the dance floor DJ could you play us some more, of that iggy pop cassette Before she learns that my friends are mostly books and records and that each year in gym class, I get a D for effort and spend most of my school days with my radio, headphones that play an iggy pop cassette (long instrumental section) Before you graduate from this gym back to your homeland could I please get your address, maybe I'll see you again in a future where we've grown up but we still can't get enough of our iggy pop cassette

Seems that your sympathy card was lost in the mail I'll be sure to call and complain to the postal service tomorrow I hope you still know I'm a good man and often honest without fail and worth all the kisses, the long goodbyes, and money borrowed The dreams of this country they look so good if you know you can get them The white picket fences, the swimming pools, and brand new cars Well Lord knows I've tried to set my sights on the stuff this world gives you But nothing works out, I've tried too long with all my heart Chorus: And tonight there's an audience on the sidewalk looking at me Demons and monsters, bedsheets ghosts, things unseen As they throw all my spells and my stereos and goals to the city Evicted from this old place on Halloween There's never an evening that I don't spend remembering our nights long ago Your skeleton stalkings hang on the corner of my bed The flickering candle, the OUIJA board covered with your underwear As serpents and spirits cast their spells above our heads I never thought you would disappear into tomorrow I never could picture this house without you somewhere inside And as my hair turns gray and my face loses its color I see your reflection, it haunts my mirror, and I can't hide Chorus Take me a picture, write me into a happy horror screenplay Where everything works out no matter what evil things come before I'll tattoo some sacred, unholy symbol onto my body and pray to whatever god or devil brings you back to my door.
