lyrics

(I CAN’T WAIT TO GET TO) NOWHERE
Allegiance and ignorance
They are such strange bedfellows
“But this place would fall apart without me!”
Now, repeat that to your own ego
As if we could single-handedly stop all of the overflow

The weight of millions here
Finally suffocating my soul
When there is so much wild frontier
Beyond
That won’t be concrete jungle
So where else do you put someone who has almost turned into stone?

Well, I can’t wait to get to nowhere
They say this city is a state of mind
Try telling that to a whole mind that is fried

The assassins we endure
To be on the front lines of the action
Will lose my forfeiture
Return it as my rightful ration
While the front lines keep on searching for a couch to crash on

Well, I can’t wait to get to nowhere
They said that I was such a staple here
But it was over an open wound, I fear

Take a look at all of your peers
Think of what you all have I common
But don’t drown in your tears
When you realize that you really have none
Let’s change the plot
Let’s act like we are on the run

City scenery on a loop
Now, what are we trying to protect
When the cuckoo flies the coop
It’s not a result of neglect
I’ve just gone to collect
What is left
Of all of my intellect

And I can’t wait to get to nowhere
Somewhere better be standing if I return
Or I will continue to wish it burns
