lyrics

the future is under fire, the past is gaining ground
a continuous cold war between my home and my hometown
i was destined to die dreaming, when one day my best friend
with passion and pure provocation, summoned me and said:

you can't condemn your love, to linger here and die
can't leave your dreams to chance or to a spirit in the sky
may your heart always be ardent, your conscience always clear
and succumb to the city and surrender, baby, i'll be waiting here

and it got me all fired up, to go faraway
and make some ears ring from the sound of my singing, baby

so I left my home, and all I had
i used to be good, but now I'm bad

it was last call at my local, and i stalled saying goodbye
so the girl behind the bar came over, and she took me aside
she kissed me like a chorus, said give them hell for us
and last drink of the night, last night in town, baby, this one is on the house

and it got me all fired up, to go faraway
and make some ears ring from the sound of my singing, baby

so I left my home, and all I had
i used to be good, but now I'm bad

it was bedlam in my bed that night, and like a silent scream
my body broke out in a sweat from seeing you in dreams
you called out to me, i sang back to you
and all i remember was it sounded, baby, like all hell breaking loose

and it got me all fired up, to go faraway
and make some ears ring from the sound of my singing, baby

so I left my home, and all I had
i used to be good, but now I'm bad
