about

original, recorded as a solo project, inspired by electric Dylan

lyrics

once upon a time i had a wife and a house
i spent my time in the attic just like a mouse
i think it was the sight of the towels marked hers and his
now i wish this road would go somewhere but it stays just where it is

it's Tuesday night and i'm writing a song
this one's a short one, only 19 verses long
put two lines in a shoebox pretty soon they start having kids
i wish this road would go somewhere but it stays just where it is

watching the fireworks from a pontoon boat
i swear someone put something in my root beer float
i want to go out with a bang not a slow gin fiz
i wish this road would go somewhere but it stays just where it is

it takes 50 forms of ID now just to vote
pretty soon you'll need an armband on your overcoat
but the future is naked i guess that's why they call it show biz
i wish this road would go somewhere but it stays just where it is

some people on the Internet are like an open book
the further away you are the more impressive they look
if there's no one behind the curtain, it's because i'm off taking a wiz
i wish this road would go somewhere but it stays just where it is
