So long Superman
Got a suggestion for ya
Check for kryptonite before ya
Try to break a horse
Hey, ho, here we go now
Pulling onto the freeway
Just like any other weekday
Except there's no remorse
Cause I'm gone
And now nothing seems to matter
Traded in my silver platter
For an empty plastic tray
There was nothing left worth waiting for
The kids burned down the candy store
And I'm waiting for a train

So long, Superman
I'll light a candle for ya
Say a prayer when California
Falls into the sea
L.A. I never knew ya
Goodbye, good riddance to ya
Go to hell and hallelujah
You never meant much to me

I don't care
Where the track leads I will follow
I left like Lou Ferrigno
Tearing at the seams
I couldn't take that town to more
A whole world I ain't seen before
So I gave up the gravy
For sweet obscurity

So long, Superman
I'm taking a vacation
I'll miss your medication
It helped to ease the pain
I'll see you back in Reno
Outside the Grand Casino
In your old El Camino
Singing in the rain

No plans
I go where the machine goes
The past is a placebo
Dissolving in a drain
I sleep beside the railroad tracks
No more rent ot income tax
I've got no fixed address now
I'm waiting for the train

    General CommentGreat song, best of theirs in my opinion.
    I think it's about running away, from your problems, from all that shit, maybe even without reason. Just run and you'll feel fine (if Tod A. can ever feel fine)

    General CommentThis was the very first Firewater song I heard, many years ago. To this day it still remains as one of my top 5 Firewater songs.
