about

"So Alan and Dara and I were sitting in my apartment watching a terrible movie, and it occurred to me halfway through that we were under no obligation to finish it; there were an infinite number of other things we could choose to do instead. Maybe it's trite, I don't know. Springsteen sings of escaping oppression and poverty and New Jersey. I sing of escaping a bad movie. But the escape is the same. So I wrote the song and brought it to the guys and they brought the thunder and the 7/8 and here we are." Mike

lyrics

This movie kinda sucks
Blink twice if you agree
We paid our thirty bucks
We saw what we could see

The choice is ours to make
We wait until it's done
Or else we make a break
And run

Tonight
The world is ours
To do with as we please
The moon and stars
And possibilities

So damn this cold
And damn the morning light
And when we're old
At least we'll have tonight

Let's raise a little hell
Make angels in the snow
Let's take the closest L
As far as it can go

I know a little place
It's just around the block
Where we'll sit face to face
And talk

Tonight
The world is ours
To do with as we please
The moon and stars
And possibilities

So damn this cold
And damn the morning light
And when we're old
At least we'll have tonight

It's not enough to escape your life
There's nowhere else to be
But if you want to reshape your life
Then just come with me
Just come with me
Yeah

How often do we laud
The path already laid
Afraid of being a fraud
Afraid of being afraid

This film we both can't stand
Is coming to a close
But if you take my hand
Who knows

Tonight
The world is ours
To do with as we please
The moon and stars
And possibilities

So damn this cold
And damn the morning light
And when we're old
At least we'll have

Tonight
The world is ours
To do with as we please
The moon and stars
And possibilities

So damn this cold
And damn the morning light
And when we're old
At least we'll have tonight

At least we'll have tonight
At least we'll have tonight
At least we'll have tonight
