"Destination Anywhere" as written by and Jon Bon Jovi....
Somebody help me get out of this place
Too many words, I confuse what I say
Calling the victims, a probable cause
Give me the keys and get out of this box

Keep both hands up
On the way to destination anywhere
Keep both hands up
On the way to take control

I can't let myself fall down
I can't help myself right now
I can't let myself fall down
If I can't be myself, I fall down

Somebody help me get out of this place
Too many fools with a smile and a face
Somebody help, the prescription is wrong
I'm never awake unless I fake it

I can't let myself fall down
I can't help myself right now
I can't let myself fall down
If I can't be myself right now

Keep your head on straight
Make the kids behave
Keep your mind awake
If I can't be myself, I fall down

Keep both hands up on the way up
Destination anywhere

I can't let myself fall down
I can't help myself right now
I can't let myself fall down
If I can't be myself right now

Keep your head on straight
Make the kids behave
Keep your mind awake
If I can't be myself, I fall down

    General CommentDuring the pre-production of "Palm Trees And Power Lines" we spent three weeks at a studio in Los Angeles called Studio 9 on Santa Monica Blvd. For the first week Kenny and I would get together on off days to practice songs the band hadn't yet become familiar with. On one of these "off" days I got to the studio early and started playing the drums and singing melodies off the top of my head. At the time I was listening to a band from Texas called Spoon that had musical arrangements heavy on drums and vocals. I grabbed my tape recorder and set it on the floor tom and let it roll, I started singing "Destination Anywhere". I got through almost the entire first half of the song in one pass making it up as I was going along. Kenny came in; we grabbed a piece of lined paper and mapped out the rest of the song. I thought it had a 60's sci-fi quality to it and thought introspective lyrics should reflect it's sound. It was very spontaneous. At the next band practice we played Marko and Airin the song. Airn cemented a riff that sounded like a cross between U2's "New Years Day" and something similar to any number of Motown songs. Marko played guitar stabs reminiscent of British 60's mod. The song was born. When we brought it in the studio, Gavin said it reminded him of INXS. We were all shocked in horror. From there we striped it back of any of its cheesy bells and whistles and added a moog keyboard riff into the bridge. Now the song was complete. The vocals of this song were re-recorded twice. Gavin felt that this track needed to sound very intimate, especially considering how naked it is in the verse. It also had a second pre-chorus that was edited out in the last week of the recording. This was one of the harder songs to record on the album. This is Marko's favorite song on the record.

    Even though this isn't one of the best songs on the album, I have no idea why it only has one comment... Meh *shrug*

    General Comment"Somebody help, the prescription is wrong". My favorite line in this song. I've never been on medication but something about that catches my ear.
