lyrics

sea foam green is the car
driving in circles in the parking lot
maybe someone's learning how to go nowhere
I'm surprised they don't already know how
this town will never be mine
it gets great marks for unpleasant design
spikes on benches so you cannot nap
unless you're dead inside and you just don't give a fuck.
drunk teenage girls by the train station
on Tuesday afternoon for no apparent reason
I would join them, I too am just scraping by
but there's no way i can scream that high
my sibling's legs are long and tough
they can always take the shortcut
I never really studied the map
I just pretended none of it was there

life is small
who gave you
permission to expand beyond the bus station
fuck everything you might have heard
these words are slurred and absurd

I perfected the death stare
I learned it from grandmother downstairs
but every time i leave this place
I leave it right there.
Next to the tupperware
I turned on you in '06
I know secretly you're into it
if I make it somewhere else
the further away, the bigger the prize

life is small
who gave you
permission to expand beyond the bus station
fuck everything you might have heard
these words are slurred and absurd
