If there was just somehow
I think I should go now
I'm going to Nebraska
I'm leaving tomorrow
I'll purchase grasslands
Good luck to you all

If there was just somehow
Switch off the whole town
Undo the tied wound
To redo it all
I'm going to Nebraska
Cause my head's in the grasslands
Though my feet are not even
To stand in the ground
I'm going to Nebraska
I'm leaving tomorrow
I'll purchase some aspirin
Good luck to you all

If there was just somehow
Switch off the power
And re-root the wiring
We'd all have a ball
I'm going to Nebraska
Cause I long for the grasslands
Get a job as a ranch hand
Good luck to you all

I'm catching a greyhound
I'm bent on the eastbound
Can't wait for my new town
Good luck to you all

I'm catching a greyhound
I'm bent on the eastbound
Won't be coming back 'round
Good luck to you all

    General CommentProbably my favorite Grandaddy song! I love how it's basically a big "f-you" to everyone in the singer's hometown. I can certainly relate (and I don't think I'm alone here) with wanting to just leave town forever and never having to look at anyone's face again. It's a very powerful song, rare for Grandaddy in the sense that it features heavy distortion and screaming lyrics, but all that just goes a long way in helping convey the pure anger stored deep inside.

    Screaming along to this song is great therapy, btw. "Me voy a la mierda!"
