lyrics

There were gangs of summer boys
Riding bikes on Wythe Creek each and every day
Crashing into night and noise,
The second born of the Chesapeake Bay

They smoked their first cigarettes
Down on Messick Point in the labyrinth of night
They got mixed up in themselves
And under bed sheets they began to write

They found a hub for disenfranchised souls
At harbor espresso
And played music on the open mic
Pouring out the angst and the soul

And the boys got behind wheels
gunning down Magruder Speedway
Just outside of town
Watch for a moment and they’ve sped away

Bull Island
Was a breeding ground for punks
‘Cause they got fed up
With the racist drunks
They defined themselves collectively
With antagonistic expertise
And scraped it on the bathroom wall
Suburban brat ideologies

And your living in the moment
Wrapped up in the books so long
That you studied wide eyed in the night
And quoted in your songs

And a girl catches your eyes
Laughing quietly with her friends and
then she’s everything that you think about
And everyone knows it so don’t pretend that its not true

Bull Island
Was a breeding ground for punks
‘Cause they got fed up
With the racist drunks
They defined themselves collectively
With antagonistic expertise
And scraped it on the bathroom wall

Meet me in October under the
Festival lights I’ll let you wear my sweater
We can do anything you like
As long as we’re together

Come with me down to the bay
Ill sit in the sand with you
And feel the wind between our bodies
Ill kiss you if you want to

Make a pact with me that we
Will never be like the rest
Bored and old and half asleep
And probably depressed

Let’s make it out of here
And to a city in the west
'Cause no one understands us here
We are living life repressed
