lyrics

She’s getting ready to go
to the opposite end of the country
This town’s a little too slow
not like the opposite end of the country
There they do it up right,
drink mickeys all night

She’s packing all of her stuff
for the opposite end of the country
Finding work shouldn’t be too tough
at the opposite end of the country
They love her out there,
she’s a breath of fresh air

Sometimes you’ve got to
carve your own sweet path
but with no direction you fall on your sweet—

I’ve heard some horrible things
about the opposite end of the country
They’ve got syndicate rings
at the opposite end of the country
There they shoot you with knives
and give each other high fives

You’ve got to figure out yourself what’s best
but with no direction you just make a mess

And now she wants to come back
from the opposite end of the country
They’re just a bunch of poseurs and hacks
at the opposite end of the country
She’s nuts in the head, but we’re making her bed
