I try to diffuse another fragile ticking time bomb here
It’s not our fault you’re feeling low
Let’s prevent ourselves from losing our silly spinning heads again
Off to somewhere we should not go
Some where we should not go

Too much time lost here
And then I’ve tripped on flaws of yesterday
Shelving faults can kill the flow
Smother the waste in this space, rise over the haste and declare a holiday
Off to somewhere we should not go
Somewhere we should not go

Stuck here again, but I’m alright
I’m feeling uptight and I’m drowning in things I’ve collected a lifetime of
My “cannot-leave-behinds”
I’m finding it hard to see that I’m
Trying to make all my time be the best time of my life

Why can I feel a twenty story building crash down on me?
It’s time to skip this town, I know
Would it be better to stay here and choke on where we barely both can breathe?
Or go somewhere we should not go?
Somewhere we should not go

But I’m fine… Don’t wait for me
Close your eyes and you’ll see me
Go.

But I’m fine… Don’t wait for me
Just take a stand and you’ll see me
Had enough? I bet by now
You won’t be back again for me

    General CommentOpening dialog is from a movie "Blue Velvet"

    Frank Booth: Hey you wanna go for a ride?
    Jeffrey Beaumont: No thanks.
    Frank Booth: No thanks? What does that mean?
    Jeffrey Beaumont: I don't wanna go.
    Frank Booth: Go where?
    Jeffrey Beaumont: For a ride.
    Frank Booth: A ride! Now that's a good idea! OK, lets go.

    General CommentThis song has grown to become one of my favorites. I think it's about wanting to get away from where you're at, but wondering if you'll miss where you were...if that makes sense.
