    Lyrics

    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

    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 your dying day?

    And when we looked outside, couldn't even see the sky
    How do you pay the rent, is it your parent's?
    Or is it hard work, dear, holding the atmosphere?
    I don't wanna live like that

    If the sun don't shine on me today
    If the subways flood and bridges break

    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
