I'm bored
You're boarding the 504 out of town
It's late, so look straight
Don't pull your eyes off the ground
You sit and wait across the gate
The minutes stretch themselves so long
You'll never be my destiny
Because my destination's wrong

Right coast, left coast
Drifting 'round and 'round
I'm lost, always, and I know I can't be found

Who made
These customs I can't seem to get past?
It's no use
Since you've been born into a higher class
When I want you, and only you,
Somehow your baggage comes along
And it never stops, no, it never stops
Until I'm back where I belong

Right coast, wrong coast
Drifting round and round
I'm lost, always, and I know I can't be found

You can't see me
Across this great divide
I'm lost, always,
If I'm not right by your side

Back where I belong
Back where I belong

    General Commentactually, i love the lyrics in this song. theyre not, like, the pixies or harry nilsson or anything, but thats whats so incredible about ozma. they didnt have the most deep lyrics.. but they way that they sang, with such passion and truth.. the voices cracking and the half-shouting.. its great stuff. you cant deny that ozma was a such a rad band.

    crap. that comment was posted almost two years ago.
