Flyin' east on a plane
I guess I saw this comin' down the line
But I think I should've packed my gun

Tell the same old tired jokes
Mom and Dad, me and you
Think I'm gonna hide out in my room
I've been gone for a while
And they say you can't go home anymore
And I'll have to play the game
With the TV on and the neighbors there
Out in the yard
He never lets the crab grass grow too high
And that's why I'm gonna feel so strange

Made some changes in my style
Well the streets all look the same
We'll all sit around in the kitchen chairs

When this big bird touches down
Then I'm gone with the wind
Till that great suburban showdown in the sky
