Please take a long hard look through your textbook, ’cause I’m history | When I strap my helmet on, I’ll be long gone ’cause I’ve been dying to leave | I’ll ride the range and hide all my loose change in my bedroll, ’cause riding a dirt bike down a turnpike always takes its toll on me | I’ve had just about enough of quote “diamonds in the rough” because my backbone is paper thin | Get me out of this cavern or I’ll cave in | If the bombs go off the sun will still be shining because I’ve heard it said that every mushroom cloud has a silver lining, though I’m always undermining too deep to know | Swallow a drop of gravel and blacktop ’cause the road tastes like wintergreen | The wind and the rain smell of oil and octane mixed with stale gasoline | I’ll soak up the sound, try to sleep on the wet ground, I’ll get ten minutes give or take ’cause I just don’t foresee myself getting drowsy when cold integrity keeps me wide awake | Get me out of this cavern, or I’ll cave in | I’ll keep my helmet on just in case my head caves in | ‘Cause if my thoughts collapse or my framework snaps, it’ll make a mess like you wouldn’t believe | Tie my handlebars to the stars so I stay on track | And if my intentions stray, I’ll wrench them away, then I’ll take my leave and I won’t even look back
