  1. My Hometown

Lyrics

Something's happening to my hometown
The norm bleeds into the strange
Ancient buildings being taken down
I guess that's the price of change.

Where is it going to? What will it mean to me?
It doesn't happen fast but I feel it creeping up on me
All my friends are leaving for somewhere
Strangers come and take their place
They've got money but they don't work here
Put down your hammer and join the race
Join the race.

Something's happening to my hometown Everything is going great
We've got money but our backyards are gone
Where are we supposed to play?

Where is it going to? What will it mean to me?
It doesn't happen fast but I feel it creeping up on me
All my friends are leaving for somewhere
Strangers come and take their place
They've got money but they don't work here
Put down your hammer and join the race
Join the race.

Well thank you very much I feel my welcome here is done
You do not need me so I think I'm going to run
Distant voices call me from across the land
They know what I can do
So I say goodbye to you.

Something's happened to my hometown It looks familiar but it's not the same
A little more grey and a little less green
It didn't have to be this way.
Where is it going to? What will it mean to me?
It doesn't happen fast but I feel it creeping up on me
All my friends are leaving for somewhere
Strangers come and take their place
They've got money but they don't work here
Put down your hammer and join the race
Join the race.
