lyrics

I think that I got too good at writing ‘Fuck You’s’
I think I need a bigger challenge now
And honestly, it’s a little past due
Getting to the root of the problem to finally work this out

I decided to make a list of the things that make me angry
Like the looks I get when people find out that I’m an atheist
I thought that’d change when I moved from Mississippi
And I hate that there are only 2 people here that really get me
I mean one I’m dating so it’s kind of a job requirement
But Jon lives too far away to see
Well not really, it’s just that the state took my license away from me
So fuck the police
… Even though I was completely in the wrong

So I wake up and ask myself is this where I want to be
Even though I’ve got a steady job, a couple friends, and family
That doesn’t change that I don’t belong
Me and these right wing politics don’t get along
If I’m not happy here I should do what’s best for me
And leave

And I hate that I walk a block and end up in fucking Kansas
Home to a church that makes me more than just uncomfortable
Or the blatant hate from their so called representatives

Everything is exactly what it looks like
And everyone is exactly who they seem to be
Call me a quitter but it’s just not working
I need some true blue scenery

So I wake up and ask myself is this where I want to be
Even though I’ve got a steady job, a couple friends, and family
That doesn’t change that I don’t belong
Me and these right wing politics don’t get along
If I’m not happy here I should do what’s best for me
And leave

If you want to go then go if you think that’s right for you
If you want to go then go, just know where you’ll end up and what you’ll do
If you want to go then go if you think that’s right for you
Well I want to go so I’ll go
But where to?
