​Welcome Back Riders

This song is by The Swellers and appears on the album Ups And Downsizing (2009).

I've seen my fair share of ghosts
But what scares me the most
Is seeing what's coming
Growing older and giving up
And I won't believe it, I won't believe it

With sit down strikes and gutters tonight
There's nothing left in this town
We've all been sold, it's not rock 'n' roll
Don't beat us when we're down

It's okay, you didn't even listen in the first place
Welcome back riders, it's another rat race
All of your words are safe until the show
And soon the world's gonna know

An empty promise, so here's a toast
From your empty office, no lawyer will take it
This case is as good as closed
And I can't believe it, I can't believe it

Away for years, and now you're here
So tell them where you've been
Wait in line, enjoy the ride
It's coming back again

It's okay, you didn't even listen in the first place
Welcome back riders, it's another rat race
All of your words are safe until the show
And soon the world's gonna know

These streets are the same to me
These songs won't mean anything
Without a place to call our home
A place to call our own, I'm staying tonight
