lyrics

She left the tragic of the city
for the magic of a country town
country town
High-rises making people crazy
Dense isolation, people fading out
country town

He chose the magic of the city
over the tragic of a country town
country town
No future working in a box store
no hands are needed in the fields back home
fields back home

I have been traveling the outskirts
watching the town turn into parking lots
and crooked slots
Two lanes that widen into four lanes
this cycle passes in a dull rerun
the whole nation
I get so lost among the sameness
expanding outward in a brainless maze
of grey and beige
Suburban swelling like a fracture
over the value of the pastureland
the profit land

I know the magic of the city
is still alive under the whitewashed lie
the mirrored sky
In secret parties in the alleys
performers acting out the marketplace
the smell and taste
Inside the shops along the main street
you'll find the backbone of the small town charm
and drop your guard
Kids running barefoot til the moonrise
chasing the hours in a sweet parade
The timeless way
