lyrics

kicked out on a tuesday night
gettin kinda nervous, watch the category rise
don't wanna wake to a flattened life
tell the neighbors "get out, this ain't one to fight"

Jacob's got a job up the road at 5
he'll meet us in Mooresville, hunker down and try
don't turn away Weather Channel live from downtown
they're drinking Mellow Yellow in the Waffle House

hope that they're alright
dodging branches and streetlights
new stations from all around
as the rain becomes the ground

Tony's stuck outta town the other side
of the country for work, gonna catch a flight
into Charlotte, drive down, pick him up at 3
then tell each other stories that we can't believe

100 year trees down in my neighborhood
roof falling in the 5 star Yelp restaurant
storm's passed by, time to drive back down
not sure if our homes are still around

there's no way back in
roads are flooding, disappearing
8 hours through tobacco fields
that won't grow back for some years

we'll be alright
get back alright
in time alright
