Lyrics

I wanna go back, I gotta go back
I wanna go back, I gotta go back
I wanna go back, I gotta go back
I wanna go back
go back

After sitting and discussing the lives of some
sit-com characters, I realize I need a life
after smelling a cow drift
the subtle tectonic plates' shift
I'm asking myself if this is a long-term strife, uh-huh

after staring at the channels, renting every video known
I realize that I just can't go on
I'm waking up from my own snoring, drinking coffee in the morning
mundane thing are really boring and something is crucially wrong

I wanna go back to the city
real lives and real people
stop dead traffic
and my next meal's not far away
I wanna go back to the city
see someone else besides myself
running rampant in the street and
feeling free
I wanna go back
go back

There's connection everywhere
people give a damn about their hair
convenience stores galore
so many unopened doors
too many folks there to label
don't have to walk ten miles for bagels
gives me an air of being stable
that concrete ground
I wanna go back
go back

I'm gonna go back to the city
where all the girls are pretty
where they wear their makeup
and the worry about their weight
go back
I'm not afraid to drink the water
don't wanna have to date the farmer's daughter
and if I do I'll surely go insane
Oh, I wanna go back
I wanna go back
I wanna go back
I wanna go back
I wanna go back, I gotta go back
I wanna go back, I gotta go back
I wanna go back, I gotta go back
