"10th Avenue Freakout" as written by and Andrew Broder....
Since Sam Rosen packed up for New York
My baseball mitt collects dust on the floor of my car.
And I sort of secretly hope he's not there to stay...
But anyway...
I hope Sam's a famous actor one day...

Sometimes I dream I'm driving across the water
In a car with my dad or my brother...
Sometimes you dream you're in a foreign country
And you packed all the wrong clothes...

Cars up on the overpass
Fake the sound of waves
I can feel the building shaking
Pacing pacing pacing pacing

By the bedroom window
Spying dirty eating urban birds...
Picking myself apart
Waiting for you to get home from work...

Since Sam Rosen packed up for New York
I don't know what to do with do-nothing days
I suppose there's no such thing anymore anyway...
I suppose that's okay...

Cars up on the overpass
Fake the sound of waves
I can feel the building shaking
Pacing pacing pacing pacing

    General Commenti see this as being about the restlessness and paranoia of modern life as observed by a person who feels really out of step with the rest of the world (which is the theme of most of 10th Avenue Freakout). particularly the apocalyptic imagery in the chorus, where the sounds of the cars going overpass seem soothing, but actually seem to be shaking the building. it seems to be suggesting that there will be a point some time soon where our way of life causes the cities to topple over.
