I should be driving to Milwaukee,
but my keys can't find you,
singing "Lean On Me" in the back of a taxicab.
Totally helpless and completely unprepared for this,
we'll stick it to a city we can call home eventually.

I know I seem upset,
but the mailman can wait.
We've held a date stuffing dollars in a piggybank;
A tape-deck preview of about six months from now
to a Logan Square apartment near Peggy's house.

We'll talk about culture shock,
saved up the chords to share
with brothers and sisters from different mothers
in your living room.

So thanks for this metronome to keep the beat steady in your time zone.
and keep a record of the songs i haven't thought of yet.

I know I seem upset,
but the mailman can wait.
We've held a date stuffing dollars in a piggybank;
A tape-deck preview of about six months from now
to a Logan Square apartment near Peggy's house.

But until then, I'll just keep myself busy singing with my eyes closed.
I've been busy singing with my eyes closed.
I've been busy singing with my eyes closed.
I've been busy singing with my eyes closed.
I've been busy singing with my eyes closed.
I've been busy singing with my eyes closed.
I've been busy singing with my eyes closed.
I've been busy singing with my eyes closed.

    General CommentI can't figure out why I love this song so much, probably best out of all of their songs. Something about the driving tick of the metronome forming perfect percussion. The lyrics are far from linear, but the way he delivers them leave lines like "we'll stick it to a city we can call home eventually" running through my head all day.
