Thunder This Forgotten Town

Father’s gone crazy, he stares out the window all day

Watching the same streets where once as a kid he would play

There’s no hope in his eyes anymore

He’s forgotten what he was hoping for

And the postman walks straight past the door

There’s no news today

Someone save me from this forgotten town

Or I’ll go crazy in this forgotten town

‘Cos when they lay me down, it won’t be here

Mother’s been drinking, she smokes nearly three packs a day

Once she was so pretty, but time’s taken it all away

Every promise she heard was a lie

about the future, how it would be right

And I won’t understand all my life

how she gets thru the day

‘Cos there’s no way out of this forgotten town

So you live your life out in this forgotten town

The only way is down, when dreams don’t come true

No not for you, no no

There’s no hope in his eyes anymore

He’s forgotten what he was hoping for

And the postman walks straight past the door

There’s no news today

Someone save me from this forgotten town

Or I’ll go crazy in this forgotten town

There’s no way out of this forgotten town

So you live your life out in this forgotten town

Until you’re in the ground it’s all you can do

It’s all you can do now

No no no
