​Wave Goodnight to Me

This song is by Jeff Rosenstock and appears on the album Worry. (2016).

I used to walk down to the docks in spring
And drink tallboys on the rocks by the water,
Under the watchful eye of Dayglo cranes
That spread like floods from corner to corner
And wave goodnight to me.

So when it all fell down,
I should've been prepared.
They spent the last five years yelling,
"Come on! Come on! Come on! Get out of here!
I wish it didn't hurt.
I wish I didn't care.
They spent the last five years yelling,
"Come on! Come on! Come on! Get out of here!

Yeah, ignorance is bliss until the day
The things you ignored all come into focus
And those "conveniences" leave cavities
That can't get filled 'cause you didn't notice.
Wave goodnight to me.

Wave goodnight to the sleepless city too tired to fight.
They're pushing you out in the name of progress
And selling your memories to the tourists.
