Lyrics

[Verse]
The civil war has broken out in me
And now I must choose a side
I found that Cali's divided
Into a wicked north and a south piece
And how I'd like to reside
And fight for southern's side
(With all the lovely sunlight)
Now with that all clear
I'll wrap up here
I just need motivation
To separate me from the terrible things around here

[Chorus]
And I'm glad I'm alive
Cause all my friends know
This town could suck the life out of me
It thins out my blood
And beats up my head
So I will try out another instead

[Verse]
I migrate and think the birds are so damn blessed
To change their home as they please
And come and go with the seasons
(With all the lovely sunlight)
Now with that all clear
I'll wrap up here
I just need proper notice to such good employment
And I'll just hit the road
Through the mountain side
In the mid-day I drive

[Chorus]
And I'm just glad I'm alive
Cause all my friends know
This town could suck the life out of me
It thins out my blood
And beats up my head
So I will try out another instead
And you, my baby you do
You seemed to get me
And I thought I got you too
But you got me to move
And now I'm here alone
You go and do it on your own

[Pre-Chorus]
But I'm not standing here alone
You go and do it on your own
But I'm not standing here alone, no

[Chorus]
And I'm just glad I'm alive
Cause all my friends know
This town could suck the life out of me
It thins out my blood
And beats up my head
So I will try out another instead
