So you spilled every last penny into your car
And it still won't take you where you want to go
So you spilled every last penny into your car
And it still won't take you where you very far at all
So you spilled every last penny into your car
And it still won't even barely leave your home
So you spilled every last penny into your car
And it still won't take you where you need to go
So you spilled every last penny into your car
And it still won't take you where you anywhere at all

    General CommentJeremiah Green is so underrated as a drummer. He really is fantastic on this song and it's so early in their career. Most complete drumming of his is probably on Building Nothing Out of Something and The Fruit That Ate Itself CDs.

    General Comment@ross2p I definitely agree, waaaaaaaayyyyy too commercialized. Not enough real emotion like their previous albums. True music appreciators would understand. There is ok qualities of all mm cds but they steadily get more and more produced, less authentic.

    @Theo Reo MAybe because he's saying something that he really wants to be heard, not just in one ear and out the other. And if you want to analyze a new aspect of the song, get some good headphones with good bass and check out Eric's bass line. It totally completes the song in my opinion

    One of my favorites on the album since the first time i heard it

    General CommentIssac definitly wrote this song when he was drunk and depressed. it definitly has the same themes of working hard but not succeeding that much of their early work has.
