Then Don't Hipst

from by Declan Ryan



All my lovers' names are on highway signs, so blow a kiss to the state line. And pray we don't come back this way for quite some time. These yellow lines and Jersey walls, you've seen them once, you've seen them all. Still, it's a front row seat as the summer turns to fall. So just stop talking so loud, and throw that right hammer down, and burn away those
miles of radio wasteland. I've climbed this hill at least a thousand times. Enough to know this city is mine. And I've watched as she tried to hide her stars behind these skies. I wrote home, “the view has changed.” I told a lie. We'll forget these fools that we've known, circle 'round and pick the last good times off these bones, and burn away those miles of radio
