The Long Winters — Prom Night At Hater High lyrics

Sitting there where you buried your pets
Get up! We'll dig graves for your invisible friends
Now I can't stand to hear another thing explained
Your trip to Spain
Your childhood pain
So won't you quit talking down to your girlfriend
Oh, I see, you're not fighting, you're flirting
Well I hope it's exciting
These kids are my age it's strange to say
Look up! Every star is singing in space
But I am motionless on this tiny strip
My conscience is clean
I can see everything
Well, the girls meet to dish the dirt but it's them!
I heard their conversation it made me laugh
They talk about the magic man
Like they ever had him

Jet City won't let you go without a fight
You see the pod people on prom night
At Hater High
Don't stay up late to cry
You've got a big trip to plan
Say goodbye to your old friends
Say goodbye, goodbye Jet City

She showed up for our date five years late
She said you're so s*** and so great
Aren't you gonna show me where you sing your downtown song?
I said, "Downtown's gone! Downtown's gone!"
Now my only ties to that old scene
Are the same mean people in pre-owned jeans
I used to love them all
But they burned me up, Goodbye.
