lyrics

Every motherfucker has a story. Every motherfucker’s been somewhere that you will never go. Every motherfucker here’s an artist. Every motherfucker here has got to let you know. But every story gives me hope that I will someday have my own. 55 is a straight shot home and
the skyline lights remind me that I’m not alone. I’ve made a place here amongst the bars and hospitals. My reflection in the frozen lake stares back at me disapprovingly as I try to face the winter in these tree-lined streets and tell myself: New York City would be better, Chicago will do just fine. Even in this shitty weather, it’s all the same. I’ll bite my lying tongue before I say I’ll never go back to everything I ever could call home. Started the Great Chicago Fire on the Near West Side. I wish I could stay this amount of drunk all of the time. Damen burned like Rome and Logan saw the smoke and it has never felt so good to walk two miles home. Started the Great Chicago Fire on the Near West Side. And from there on down to my hometown the highway was alive tonight. Started the Great
Chicago Fire on the Near West Side and from there we repair and repair and repair. If we can just survive this winter we may see the sun again, and that shade of blue you’ll only find over Lake Michigan. Chicago will do just fine.
