Track Name: Great
All we're doing here is biding our time
Waiting patiently we hope we're the next in line
This city's done with you, pretend that you're fine
This city's done with you, it's all a steep hill climb

(but) I'll know what you are in no time at all.

Tiny differences burn holes in our night
Take what we've got an make a well to hold our lies
This city's done with you, it knows what you hide
This city's done with you, it's all a steep decline

You learned all about it in the rain
This is where it hurts, but there's no pain.
