California
it's on the other side of
a landmass on this planet
but it's a destination
and

If your tired of
the notion of escape
as a distant thought
that you were stuck in a rut
That you were born to regret
all I can say is
Get the fuck out
Because

I'm not impressed
By the intimidation tactics
of this expansive land
Of the vaguely unknown
and I'm not impressed

Philadelphia
Is a city on the
middle eastern side of
A landmass on this planet
That I'm not too proud of
but it's a landmass that I live on
and Philadelphia's smoggy skyline
lies above a few good humans
Who are not impressed

But the blood that goes into the building
That doesn't belong to the architect
and
I'm not impressed

When they turn their guns to Oakland
I'll be underneath the sea
In the city of Atlantis
and I will dare them come and look for me
For when the protest song is outlawed
Then the dwellers of the city's outties
will not meet the fate of the city targets

Who never even thought to get so far
As California
California
Its on the other side of
A landmass
on this planet
But it's a destination
