Highrise carcasses left behind,
For far away places you'll never find.
Chrome lined smoke clouds left behind,
For far away places inside your mind.

Inside your mind.
Aboard the jackass enterprise.
Watch the road for broke down sattelites.
Fare thee not well mutineer,
Don't come back around.
Fare thee not well mutineer.
Should you all crash down.
Should you all crash down.
The grass was always greener.
The grass was always greener.

The dead moles roll over town,
And airports are apartments now.
And the amusements parks by the ocean,
That's where you'll find the launch pads,
And the carnies and NASA university grads.
University grads,
Aboard the jackass enterprise.
Watch the road for boke dwn sattelites.

Fare thee not well mutineer,
Don't come back around.
Fare thee not well mutineer.
Should you all crash down.
Should you all crash down.
The grass was always greener.
The grass was always greener.

    General CommentPretty sure the first line in the second verse is 'the dead malls' are all over town...', as in shopping malls / centres ?

    Beautiful song in true nostalgic Grandaddy tradition. Agree the video is awesome too!
