In The Neighbourhood

This song is by It's Immaterial and appears on the album Song (1990).

All of the plans we made
And all of the money we saved
How things have changed
And I haven't had a good time
In such a long time
And, oh, how things have changed

But they talk and talk and talk and talk and talk
No one lets their hair down anymore
But they talk and talk and talk and talk
No one lets their hair down anymore

Everyone's on edge so woe betide
A word that's said behind the curtain
Children kick a ball around
Householders wear a frown

When shall we move away
That's all I'm trying to say

Off the beaten track you can relax
Or so it said in all the surveys
Out here on the edge of town
Sunday means wash the car down

When shall we move away
That's all I'm trying to say

In the hallows of the afternoon
The women's guild in our front room
Are on the whiskey
Eating all the fancy cakes
Talking of the raw estates

When shall we move away
That's all I'm trying to say

Yesterday I said, Margo
Let's pull up all the roots and go
That's what I'm thinking
Living in this apathy
We'll vegetate, just wait and see

When shall we move away
That's all I'm trying to say

It's not just an awkward age
And it's not just a phase
It's just how I love
How I love the city
And how I love the city
And how I miss the city
And how I miss the city
And how I miss the nightlife
And how I miss the bright lights
And everything's here's new
And there's nothing here to do

So goodbye, suburbia
I'm leaving
Goodbye, suburbia
I'm leaving

It's just like living each day in the music hall
The jokes are on you until the curtain falls
Out here in the backwoods they'll squeeze you dry
Each drop of your life's blood will make each day
Go bye and bye and bye

Goodbye, house now
You know I'm leaving
Goodbye, house now
I'm going home
Got to be leaving
Leave it all behind
I'm leaving, I'm leaving, I'm leaving, I'm leaving
I'm leaving, I'm leaving, I'm leaving, and I'm gone
