Lyrics and Music by Jeremy Fraites and Wesley Schultz


Pack yourself a toothbrush, dear.
Pack yourself a favorite blouse.
Take a withdrawal slip,
Take all of your savings out.
‘Cause if we don’t leave this town
We might never make it out.
I was not born to drown.
Baby, come on.

Forget what Father Brennan said,
We were not born in sin.
Leave a note on your bed,
Let your mother know you’re safe.
And by the time she wakes
We’ll have driven through the state,
We’ll have driven through the night.
Baby, come on.

Chorus:
     If the sun don’t shine on me today,
     And if the subways flood and bridges break,
     Will you lay yourself down and dig your grave,
     Or will you rail against the dying day?

And when we looked outside,
Couldn’t even see the sky.
How do you pay the rent?
Is it your parents,
Or is it hard work, dear,
Holding the atmosphere?
I don’t wanna live like that, yeah.

Chorus:
     If the sun don’t shine on me today,
     If the subways flood and the bridges break…

Bridge:
   Jesus Christ can’t save me tonight.
   Put on your dress, yes, wear something nice.
   Decide on me, yeah, decide on us.
   Oh, oh, oh, Illinois, Illinois.

Pack yourself a toothbrush, dear,
Pack yourself a favorite blouse.
Take a withdrawal slip,
Take all of your savings out,
‘Cause if we don’t leave this town,
We might never make it out.
