Prom Night at Hater High - The Long Winters

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?
o, 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
see the pod people on prom night at hater high
so 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 sexy and so great
are 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
