Why aren't we leaving town right now?

from The Strokes – Partners In Crime Lyrics on Rap Genius


He’s making a reference to New York City Cops where he says “I swear one day I’m gonna leave this town”. And in this one it’s kinda like: “Well, we’ve waited all this time and didn’t leave it yet. Why don’t we leave right now?”
