Get, get, get inside your spaceship
You don't have a car, but you don't have to take this
So jet about the city like your favorite authors
Look up at the stars, look up at the stars
You're on the fast track livin' from a backpack
Leavin' all the sad sack suckers in the dust behind you
This is how you roll, permanent vacation
You put in your time, now you're out of patience
You could really go, no one's gonna stop you
You could really go, no one's gonna stop you
You could really go but now you're gettin' caught up in it
Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute
Thinkin' 'bout your friends thinkin' 'bout your other friends thinkin' about you
And they can't and they probably wonder what happened to you
Can't return a call, skippin' every breakfast
You tried to be a writer but instead he only back checks
Out of shape, uninspired
Force down salad and you just feel tired
Wake up every day and spend it from the get-go
Chewin' on your thumb and starin' out the window
You could really go, no one's gonna stop you
You could really go, no one's gonna stop you
You could really go if you could spare the money
But you're burnin' through your twenties for a misdirected energetic asshole
Livin' in a castle, wavin' 'round a brass pole
With a little ball on top
And barkin' like a tree, debatin' every sick face
Stormin' through the office like Katrina on the fifth day
Sittin' with your pockets full of fists
And you're starin' at your wrists
And your scissors and you're shakin' so bad
You don't have a car, but you don't have to take this
So pack yourself a pair of socks and get inside your spaceship
Daydream, think of the nights
When you'll see your name and they'll write it in lights
When the daydream ends like a kick in the chest
You can go out dancin' and hope for the best
But then you get so bored, you're half asleep
The girls are jealous and the boys are cheap
A circus of the stars, a battle of the sexes
We're all in love with dyin' and we're doin' it in Texas
You could really go (you could really go)
No one's gonna stop you (no one's gonna stop you)
But then you get that feelin' like a train track killin'
Like an old-time villain in a silent movie
Cryin' like a kid, screamin' like a sex tape
Shakin' like a Beatle fan and kickin' like a sensei
Sittin' with your pockets full of fists
And you're starin' at your wrists
And your shoulders and they're achin' so bad
Now they're cuttin' care, now they're talkin' paycut
No one better dare ask you how your day was
Please don't make me act it out
It's hard enough to talk about it
I'll just rent my DVDs
And watch my internet TV
I'll bide my time and pay my rent
'Til something knocks me to my senses
When I've had enough dyin' imitation
I'll pack myself a pair of socks and get inside a spaceship
