The Times We Are Living

lyrics

So wipe your tears
And take what you can
This is the end of it all
We’ve got nothing left

When your money’s all gone
And you can’t make your rent
I’ve been sleeping in bathrooms and bars
Just trying to cheat death

Cause these times we are living are slowly killing
My hopes and your dreams, as we silently scream
Where’s the hope we were promised and dreams we deserve
If we dismiss our past how will we ever learn?

When you can’t hold a job
Cause your industry’s dead
They’re closing the factories down
They gave you pennies instead

Cause these times we are living are slowly killing
My hopes and your dreams, as we silently scream
Well my mind is made up and now you’re crying out
As they take all your money and childhood house

So I’ll pack up my bags
I’m leaving today
I’m starting a family now
They can’t take that away

Cause these times we are living are slowly killing
My hopes and your dreams, as we silently scream
Well my mind is made up and now you’re crying out
As they take all your money and childhood house

Cause these times we are living are slowly killing
My hopes and your dreams, as we silently scream
Where’s the hope we were promised and dreams we deserve
If we dismiss our past how will we ever learn?

about

Portland Senator Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"With a hint of Avett Brothers’ vocals and instrumentation with touches of Pearl Jam and The Decemberists, Portland Senator has created an honest and unique take on the indie folk-rock genre. The Philly locals have a hypnotizing air about them worthy of repeated listenings."
