lyrics

I wanna get out of dodge
As I lay down in the back seat of the one in my dad’s garage
Close my eyes and imagine I am in my own car
Somewhere very far away

In the silence
I remember I don’t have a driver's license
That’s okay I prefer the bus anyway
Although a car is both a way to travel
And a place to stay

I am uncertain of the method and the date
I am uncertain of side roads or freeways
I am uncertain of pretty much everything that awaits

I wanna get out of dodge
But I can’t evade the feeling these decisions I make today
Will never be unmade
So I’ll just close my eyes and imagine I’m not afraid

I am uncertain of the method and the date
I am uncertain of my final resting place
I am uncertain of pretty much everything it’ll take

One thing’s for certain: I can’t stay
