about

*Princeton is the name of my actual home town.

lyrics

Red lights blow past, on angry tailgates
Headlights don’t ask, they interrogate

Your ties have been cleft
From the moment you left, there’s no coming home anymore
Forevermore you’re alone, whenever you’re home in Darktown
Here in Darktown

Princeton* Marquees have got something to say
Building Banshees wail GO AWAY

Found somewhere better
Did you think that we’d just let it go? No no no
Your ties have been cleft
From the moment you left, there’s no coming home to Darktown

The Laundromat shines, glares in disdain
The dollar store sign stares without shame

Snickering streetlights, Places-to-eat lights
Filthy windows glow at both town bars
Light pollution... clouds out the moon and the stars...

Do the lights glower on their own power
Or are you just catching reflections?

Your ties were severed
You found somewhere better, there’s no coming home to Darktown
Forevermore you’re alone, whenever you’re home in Darktown.
Here in Darktown
Forevermore you’re alone, whenever you’re home in Darktown.
Here in Darktown
In Darktown
