I can't take the heat
I can't stand the cold
Swear you would be clear of here
If you had somewhere to go

The fault lines reappear
When the water's down
Say it's been a slow year
For about four years now

And when you got sick
We couldn't pay for it
No matter the cost
And now the foreman
Says that I owe him
For one too many nights off

Watch the people we grew up with
Start to settle down
And do the things you're meant to do
When you can stop from leaving town
Won't change come Monday
When the company will call
You got a four day work week now
And the night shift's laid

And when you got sick
I couldn't pay for it
The money's all gone
And when the mortgage finally forecloses
I guess we'll both be moving on

"This place use to be something" you would say
You don't say much of nothing more these days
And we just carry on this way
