lyrics

I like the outskirts
the high desert towns
where there ain't much to do
except just hang around
I like the places
I've never been
Leave the light on for me
at the Motel 6 again

but you don't have to
go the way that I do
but I refuse to
live that way again
I've done the 9 to 6
pulling out my hair
cutting on my wrist
I think it's safe to say
I've done gone and made my escape
escape

I sit by the tombstones
off the old interstate
they do remind me
we all end up in the same place
before they put me
underneath that ground
I'm gunna do what I love
and I love to ramble 'round

but you don't have to
go the way that I do
but I refuse to
live that way again
I've done the 9 to 6
pulling out my hair
cutting on my wrist
I think it's safe to say
I've done gone and made my escape
escape

with a bottle of something cheap
and a blinking neon sign
lord knows im feeling just fine
it might be true im barely
getting by
but I ain't felt this free in a long time
no I ain't felt this free in a long time

but you don't have to
go the way that I do
but I refuse to
live that way again
I've done the 9 to 6
pulling out my hair
cutting on my wrist
I think it's safe to say
I've done gone and made my escape
escape
