about

A song about the quixotic denial of, and resistance to, growing up. Inspired by Hermann Hesse's "Demian," Ray Bradbury's "Dandelion Wine," and J.D. Salinger's "Catcher in the Rye," among others.

lyrics

Last day of the summer. My last year in school. My last chance to make a name. I can feel it slipping away. The bird of youth's taking flight. So long, seventeen. There's a storm outside. Blow out my brief candle light. Get inside the car. You wont sleep tonight, and we'll take this song as proof we really tried. There's a hole in my head, and a hole in the street. I would wait for you, but you wont wait for me. I hit the wall at a young age. My quixotic world came tumbling down. And I was sick for a long time. I was trying to see through such odd eyes. The storm has come to an end. Time for the day to begin. Get inside the car. You won't sleep tonight, and we'll take this song as proof we really tried. There's a hole in my head, and a whole industry. I would wait for you, but you won't wait for me. I went out of my window, and I went up to your door. I asked you, but you wouldn't come with me. The same as before. I went out of my window, and I went out to the car. Drove until gas ran out. Called that new place my home. Get inside the car. You won't sleep tonight, and we'll take this song as proof we really tried. There's a hole in my head, and a hole in the street. I would wait for you, but you won't wait for me. I went out of my window. And I went out to the car. Drove until the gas ran out. Called that new place my home.
