I dreamed I had a child
He was already 10
I sent him to public school
Hoping he’d make a percent
But January lies
When the heart is open
So I don’t like to sleep anymore

I used to have a friend
He desired to be alone
Resenting every tiny back-seat ride
To his parents home
But half the jump suit army’s made
Trying to make it on your own
So I think he gave up that dream long ago

And he remembers
When he was younger
When liquid cash and four-walled freedom
Seemed like a worthwhile wait
They’ve kept him sane til’ now
He plays the game

I stood out on Crown Point
I was hoping for the best
Longing for Vermont
And headed home without a cent
I spent it all just trying
For that feeling in my chest
You know the one where everything will be fine?

So let’s think back to
Those open-door days
Where girls with accents brought us beer
And men weren’t afraid of themselves
This talk about the future doesn’t help

I’m so tired of being tired of something every day
