I can't take a breath
because the air stinks
and I can't take a step
without listening
to your fucking accent
while you're saying words with 'r's misplaced.

So, fuck Route 9.
I can pump my own gas
now you're crossing the line.
Yeah, fuck Route 9,
and your water tastes like ass just stay on your side.
And we'll leave tonight and
if you're okay to drive and
we'll leave this place behind.
Thank god we don't live here all the time.

And we'll leave tonight and
if you're okay to drive and
we'll leave this place behind.
Thank god we don't live here all the time.

You don't pay to get in,
but you pay to get out.

So, fuck Route 9.
I can pump my own gas
now you're crossing the line.
Yeah, fuck Route 9,
and your water tastes like ass just stay on your side.

Fuck Route 9!

And we'll leave tonight.
No we'll leave tonight.
So we'll leave tonight.
Thank god we don't live here all the time.

    General CommentThe band is from PA. actually route nine is across the delaware river in NY and NJ. I can guess he is talking about New Jersey when he went there for a gig. New Jersey is like the only place that pumps gas for you. And the tolls are messed up there "You don't pay to get in, but you pay to get out."

    General Commentactually nubs, route 9 runs parallel to the Atlantic ocean, alongside the jersey shore; providing access to shore points like cape may, seaside heights, and wildwood, route 9 is historic and is also a huge landmark in the sate.
