    staying home can't be that bad for me
    cause i'm not scared
    but i'd like some extra spare time
    easily earn me big money

    i'm a modern girl but i fold in half so easily
    when i put myself in the picture of success
    i could learn world trade
    or try to map the ocean

    when you're dead
    in hospitals and freeways
    when you're dead
    in resting homes and clinics
    when you're dead
    it must be nice to finish
    when you're dead

    i've had it with you
    and mexico can fucking wait
    and all of those french films about trains
    cause i'm not scared
    but i'd like some extra spare time
    i'm not scared
    but the bills keep changing colors

    when you're dead
    in hospitals and freeways
    when you're dead
    in dress shirts and neckties
    when you're dead
    in apartments and on beaches
    when you're dead

    they say california is a recipe for a black hole
    and i say i've got my best shoes on
    i'm ready to go (ready to go)
    ready to go
    ready to go
    i'm ready to go
    ready to go
    ready to go
    ready to go
    i'm ready to go
    ready to go
    ready to go
    ready to go
    i'm ready to go
    ready to go
    ready to go
    ready to go
    i'm ready to go

    these are times that can't be weathered and
    we have never been back there since then

    these are times that can't be weathered and
    we have never been back there since then

    these are times that can't be weathered and
    we have never been back there since then

    these are times that can't be weathered and
    we have never been back there since then
