I drove home with all my stuff in my trunk
And in the front seat and the back seat too
My mom asked me, "What are you doin' home?
It's only Wednesday and we weren't expecting you"

I told her that I dropped out of school
And I was gonna start a band
Tomorrow I was movin' up to Bloomington
And I hoped that she could understand

She started to cry
The tears swelled up in her eyes
She asked me why and I said
I figured out what I wanted to do with my life

I traded in my Mustang
For a thirty dollar Ford Escort
I unpacked and repacked some of my things
And went to sleep not knowin' what I had in store

I listened to Porno for Pyros
That album had just came out
And I thought it was shit, I didn't like it at all
It really let me down
