Let's give up on coal mines and turn our backs on the scarecrow ghosts
I want to cast out the nauseating faces to the hot streets
Watch them run down by semis and tractors and school buses

Because on a racetrack you don't go anywhere
No matter how fast you ride
Give us a car or a railroad
And then we'll get somewhere

So send me fall air and let me get healthy
I won't walk the death march anymore and I won't waste my days chasing the dollar
I'm going to let my hands be hammers and let my feet stomp mountains
I'm going to call all my friends and send books to my cousins
So don't give me grief in your heartful words
I want to give away all my shit and drive south to san diego
And stall tall atop mount soledad at midnight
And stare out across the city
The dark squares where neighbourhoods sleep
The porch lights shining and headlights and streetlamps like landing ships
I want to see all the taco shops and darkened bars
The football field and baseball diamond at ? Bay high school
Where in the daytime marching bands stomp and beat drums
And whistles blow and flags snap in the breeze
Want to see the grocery stores and fast food parking lots
And before the sun comes up and we all race home
I'm going to throw my worries off the edge
And watch them disappear into the sage and thorns
Gone far away into blackness
