Nothing Town Lyrics:

Verse 1
Let's make this complicated
Thinking is overrated
We're busting out
Of this shitty little town
Green grass and colored lenses
Tear down these picket fences
Burn in our beds
While the city lies sleeping

Chorus:
Why oh why?
Are we starting up and going down?
My oh my
Just the two of us in Nothingtown
Our superhero play
We'll leave this town today
Hold on tighter
With my lighter
Shining through

Verse 2:
These city streets are burning
Rose red your wheels are turning
Make me believe
Someday we could really leave
Blindfold a new direction
Stop asking better questions
Don't figure out
That we're never getting out

Repeat Chorus:

Why oh why?
Are we starting up and going down?
My oh my
Just the two of us in Nothingtown
Our superhero play
Our dreams get in the way
And I'll row it if you steer it
I'll yell until you hear it
Hold on tighter
With my lighter
Shining through

Still stuck in Nothingtown
Still stuck in Nothingtown
Come on let's go

About the artist behind Nothingtown Tab:

The Offspring (sometimes referred to simply as Offspring) are a popular and influential[8] American punk rock band from Garden Grove, California formed in 1984. Since its inception, the band's line-up has included Dexter Holland (lead vocals, guitar), Noodles (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals) and Greg K. (bass, backing vocals). Their current drummer is Pete Parada, formerly of Face to Face and Saves the Day, who has been with the band since 2007.

Since the release of their 1994 album Smash, which is the best-selling independent label album of all time,[9] The Offspring have achieved commercial success over five albums, with singles such as "Come Out and Play", and "Self Esteem". The band's next three albums, Ixnay on the Hombre, Americana and Conspiracy of One, were also successful, reaching platinum certification and gold status respectively.[10][11] Longtime drummer Ron Welty left The Offspring in early 2003, and was replaced by Atom Willard. Later that year, the band released their next album, Splinter, to moderate sales and fairly warm reviews. In 2005, The Offspring released a greatest hits album and toured in support of the compilation. Their next album, titled Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, will be released on June 16, 2008 in Europe and a day later in the United States [12]; it can be streamed for free online, as well.[13]

To date, The Offspring have released eight studio albums, one compilation, four EPs and three DVD's[14], selling over 38 million albums worldwide[9], making them one of the best-selling punk acts of all time.[15] The band is credited, along with fellow California punk bands Green Day and Rancid, with reviving popular interest in punk rock in the United States during the mid-1990s.[16]
