lyrics

It's a beautiful night here in Wellsville
I think I've been doing alright
Got the American dream on a 50 inch screen
I got a car in the lot under blue motion lights

8 hours of sleep solves my problems
8 more at the desk pays the rent
but the bills in the mail beat me home without fail
Every paycheck's already been spent

And the end of the month is coming up again
but I'm happy enough on this comfortable crutch
just waiting for the weekend

We had the whole world in the palm of our hands
and then we just let it slip away, and we'll pay
for a living room set and even odds on a bet
we'll size each other up til we're old and gray

It's a beautiful night here in Wellsville
The neighbors scream through the walls
We don't know the first thing about the folks we demean
but we'll smile and nod in the hall

It's a marvelous night for a mugging
Click the deadbolt and lock yourself in
We sleep to the sound of fans and wall clock second-hands
counting down the minutes to the end

We had the whole world in the palm of our hands
and we just let it slip away, and we'll pay
for a lifetime of debt and even odds on a bet
we'll size each other up till we're old and gray

Mom and Dad, what did you do
when you learned that the world had such big plans for you?
It's so easy to use comfort as a crutch
for a life of trying to size each other up

We had the whole world in the palm of our hands
and we just let it slip away, and we'll pay
for a life of regret and even odds on a bet
we'll size each other up till we're old and gray

We'll pay till our dying day
So click the deadbolt and lock yourself in
We're counting down the minutes till the end
