in this town there is nothing at all
but a brown school and a dead shopping mall
the record store is execrable
we sit around blowing bubbles

'cause we're young and insane
and we're running away for the summer
we're deprived and depraved
and we won't get away with it
young and insane

when you're free renting an antique car
for a week you will know who you are
in the uninhabitable we go out to jump in puddles

    General CommentI know S. Merritt is from Williamsburg and there really is nothing to do there. Aside for the historical significance, the only things there that are 'thriving' is the College of William and Mary and Busch Gardens (which isn't mentioned in the song). Being from a town like that, as well, I can see how this song is about a bunch of kids trying to have a good time in spite of their lack of resources.
