No bright lights, no big city went to my head
So I wont stick around in this town
No im getting out instead

Cause I cant find a think here to get it done to race my heart and ring my ears
So I wont stick around in this town and that's true ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Cuase I wont and I cant and I dont understand
You become what you hate or you hate what you become

CHORUS
Got me a ticket and I wont be long cause I cant go on and I gotta get goin
Got me a ticket and I wont be long cause I cant go on and I gotta get goin away

So I make my way through the quagmire
Of boomers glorifing their youth
And all the peacocks in this city
So if i may be excused

Cause I wont and I cant and I dont understand
You become what you hate or you hate what youve become

CHORUS

Well I wont be around for the good times
Wont be around for the bad
And I wont stick around in this town
No im getting out instead

I wont
And I cant
And Ill leave
Cause I can
And I wont be back again!

Well I

Got me a ticket and I wont be long cause I cant go on and I gotta get gone (x3)
Got me a ticket and I wont be long cause I cant go on and I gotta get gone away

And I gotta get gone away
Cuz I gotta get gone away
Gotta get gone away

    General CommentPelle said at the Nashville show that this song is about coming from a small town, and coming to a big town, and leaving a big town afterwards. I imagine that this is because a big town can be too hectic for a small town person who likes a small town mindset.
