I was born again a little north of Disney Land
Somewhere under Wonderland and Hollywood
But then I had to go skipping and diving and bouncing back to New York City
Straight through the heart of America where all the wild things grow

I wanna be an earthquake driver
I wanna be an aquarium diver
I just don't want to go home

I live alone but I am hungry for affection
I just struggle with connection 'til the water calls me home
Down into ocean among millions of other lonely people
Drowning among the only people we are ever going to know

Don't wanna be an earthquake driver
I wanna be an aquarium diver
I just don't wanna go home

I wanna be like the people I see
They run all over just like me
I was saved but what keeps me awake
Is I'm tied into the lightning line
I wanna see if the sun is shining
Long nights just a waste of time 
I don't want to see people like me
Just sleeping in, waking in, hoping in, hating in

You look at me like I'm some kind of carnival attraction
You say love's this abstraction, just some ghost that you chase well
I am sorry friend
I am a blank space but the words you remember from when you saw my face

I wanna be an earthquake driver
I wanna be an aquarium diver
I just don't wanna go home

I wanna be like the people I see
Hey man, they run all over just like me
I wanna stay but what keeps me awake
This unplugged ears to the lightning lining
I gotta see if the sun is shining
All night waste of time  I,
Don't want to see, people like me
Just creeping in, waking in, hoping in, hating in

So what is the price for this famous self absorption?
We turn ourselves into orphans and then spend out nights alone
Living in fear of some kind of imaginary consequence
Terror incognito, ob-la-di ob-la-da

I wanna be an earthquake driver
I don't wanna be an aquarium diver
I just don't wanna go home, no no no

I don't want to be no earthquake driver now
I don't want to be an aquarium diver, but hey
I just don't wanna go home

I just don't wanna go home
I just don't wanna go home
Oh
