Okay, I don't think these are 100% but they're close! Good song.

*****
Let's make this complicated
Thinking is overrated
We're busting out of this shitty little town and

Green grass and camera lenses
Tear down these picket fences
Burn in our beds while the city lies sleeping

Why oh why are we starting up and going down? And
My oh my just the two of us in Nothingtown
A superhero play
We'll leave this town today
Hold on tighter with my lighter shining through

These city streets are burning
Rose red your wheels are turning
Make me believe someday we could really leave and

Blindfold a new direction
Stop asking bad old questions
Don't figure out that we're never getting out and

Why oh why are we starting up and going down? And
My oh my just the two of us in Nothingtown
A superhero play
We'll leave this town today
And I'll home it if you steer it
I'll yell until you hear it
Hold on tighter with my lighter shining through

Oh why oh why are we starting up and going down? And
My oh my just the two of us in Nothingtown
A superhero play
Our dreams get in the way
And I'll home it if you steer it
I'll yell until you hear it
Hold on tighter with my lighter shining through

Still stuck in Nothingtown
Still stuck in Nothingtown
Come on let's go...

Maybe im just crazy but instead of:

These city streets are burning
Rose red your wheels are turning

i hear:

These city streets are burning,
Roads, radios, wheels are turning

Maybe im alone in that though lol

I thought it was "Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down," but yours seems more correct.

i'm voting that its
"and i'll hold it if you steer it"

and not
"and i'll home it if you steer it"

and i'm not sure about the "blindfold" line... but other than that, my "independant" version is exactly the same.

I initially wrote "hold" when I was writing them down, but I listened again and just couldn't hear the 'd'. And I also questioned myself over the blindfold line as well, but it's all I could hear, lol. What did you get?

I'm still unsure about "lighter shining through", more specifically the "lighter" part. At first I just couldn't tell what he said, then I wrote down "liner" but couldn't make it make sense in my head, then finally decided on a slurry pronunciation of lighter, lol.

It's: I'll row it if you steer it, like a boat.

And: Stop asking better questions.

Humm. Row definitely makes a lot more sense, but I swear I can hear an 'm' sound in there. Also "stop asking better questions" doesn't really make sense... I not saying it's "bad old" (which also sounds pretty weird) I just don't think it's that... (I considered it when I was first listening).

Let's make this complicated, thinking is overrated
We're busting out of this shitty little town and

Green grass and colored lenses tear down these picket fences
Burn in our beds while this city lies sleeping

Why, oh, why are we starting up and going down?
And my, oh, my, just the two of us in nothingtown
Our super-hero play, we'll leave this town today
Hold on tighter with my lighter shining through

These city streets are burning, ropes red, your wheels are turning
Make me believe someday we could really leave and

Blindfold a new direction, stop asking battered questions
Don't figure out that we're never getting out and

Why, oh, why are we starting up and going down?
And my, oh, my, just the two of us in nothingtown
Our super-hero play, we'll leave this town today
And I'll row it if you steer it, I'll yell until you hear it
Hold on tighter with my lighter shining through

(Oh, oh, oh)

Oh why, oh, why are we starting up and going down?
And my, oh, my, just the two of us in nothingtown
Our super-hero play, our dreams get in the way
And I'll row it if you steer it, I'll yell until you hear it
Hold on tighter with my lighter shining through

(Oh)
Still stuck in nothingtown
Still stuck in nothingtown
C'mon let's go
