LyricsEdit

In this dream
Sitting in this restaurant
Looking ???
It was brought here by those trucks
All streaming to the seaboard

???
Looks at the girl behind the counter
This disturbs me, makes me stop and think
Takes me back to my home town
Where they'd break the boredom, break the boredom
Any way they can
And they're sure you can drive on a fifth of whiskey
Sure that you can't get pregnant the first time out

They're sick of what is here
What they see every day
They're young and energetic
They need to find an outlet

But no one tells them anything
Or asks them what they feel
Their parents are uneasy
On the subject

???
Wait until you're married
Then it'll be OK
It's easy for them to say

???
Looks at the girl behind the counter
This disturbs me, makes me stop and think
Takes me back to my home town
Where they'd break the boredom, break the boredom
Any way they can
And they're sure you can drive on a fifth of whiskey
Sure that you can't get pregnant the first time out

Where they'd break the boredom, break the boredom
Any way they can

Is there a way out?
Is there a way out of here?
So we spin into a dead stop
Is there a way out of here?
Is there a way?
