Two hours sleep again
So that makes six or seven days
Since I could steal a wink of sleep from this cold bed
"Stop watching planes," he said
My sanity's securely frayed
This city's slowly giving me nowhere to go
And as antennas bleed into the sky
My mind is set on winter's end
Driving convertibles down highways that never end

So I'm moving out to South Dakota, yeah
I'm moving out to South Dakota
And I'll see you out in South Dakota, yeah
I'll see you out to South Dakota

Just let me drive away
Instead of chasing all those dreams
And acquiesce into this mess inside my head
Just tolls and heart attacks
But don't break me down and keep me sane
And running doubts into these things
My numbered days
We can't go back, we can't go back
To how things were, to how things were
But if I find a highway long enough
I swear I'll go

I'm moving out to South Dakota, yeah
I'm moving out to South Dakota
So I'll see you out in South Dakota, yeah
I'll see you out to South Dakota

Promise you'll live it well
Cause this could be last time you get to roll the windows down
(Promise you'll live it well)
Radio turned up as loud as hell
(Cause this could be the last time)
Promise you'll live it well
Cause this could be last time you get to roll the windows down
(Promise you'll live it well)
Radio turned up as loud as hell
(Cause this could be the last time)

So I'm moving out to South Dakota, yeah
I'm moving out to South Dakota
So I'll see you out in South Dakota, yeah
I'll see you out to South Dakota, yeah

Promise you'll live it well
(So I'm moving out to South Dakota, yeah)
Cause this could be last time
(I'm moving out to South Dakota)
You get to roll the windows down
(So I'll see you out in South Dakota, yeah)
Radio turned up as loud as hell
(I'll see you out to South Dakota)
Promise you'll live it well
(So I'm moving out to South Dakota, yeah)
Cause this could be last time
(I'm moving out to South Dakota)
You get to roll the windows down
(So I'll see you out in South Dakota, yeah)
Radio turned up as loud as hell
(I'll see you out to South Dakota)

    General Comment"Nobody knows about them yet?" Plenty of people do. I mean, I first heard them a couple years ago, and their music's reviewed in AP and stuff now.

    This song's about running from the life you used to know and starting something new.
