Ain't it a shame fortune and fame can't seem to find us? And isn't it strange how few things change year after year. But the next time we headline, if you should jump on the Red Line, you'll find us there, in Central Square, and we're not going nowhere. I will be there in Central Square if you should need me. I will be there, I will be there. Ain't it shame, and kinda lame, that barely fifty people came -- but isn't it true, these things we do, we do for love? It's the town we got lost in, but we won't blame it on Boston. Yeah, this town ain't fair. In Central Square at least we fit in somewhere. I will be there in Central Square if you should want me; some years you're Up, some years you're Down. But I can call it a good night; we remain and we fight the good fight. Caught in the snare that's Central Square, year after year. I will be there in Central Square, so won't you join me? Come meet me there, come meet me there. And I can call it a good day, windows down, driving on the J-way at 2 am, back home again, year after year.

The 10 tracks are linked by common themes familiar to anyone who's experienced the bittersweet undertaking of growing up: gaining new perspectives, losing old friends, and facing head-on the prospect of aging gracefully (or not).
