lyrics

Well alright, out tonight, preloaded ‘cause I don't wanna pay,
Over-priced alcohol, bland décor, TVs on every single wall,
Big line-up, shitty DJ, drunk wankers who keep getting in,
The bouncer's on steroids, our local doesn’t look the same.

What happened to the scum?
What happened to the grime?
What happened to the dank?

There's a cancer never satisfied,
Until it destroys your favourite dive.

Our local’s been tortured and murdered and covered with lime,
Where are the old couches, the posters from back when bands played live?

There's a cancer never satisfied,
Until it destroys your favourite dive,
Until everywhere is gentrified,
And the old neighbourhood dies.

What happened to our slum?
What happened to the crime?
What happened to the rent?
It’s an eviction sign.
