sequestered off its life to all time and space
and all the people comfortable in their unknowing

like clockwork every month on monday afternoons
gives me pamphlets and tells me to pray

you and me got everything, everything we need
this ain’t no life for the faint of hearted
this is a lesson, a lesson in letting go
we are busting out of this here stereo

we come from somewhere
living off each others dreams
with our blood carrying our memories
from ohio to michigan
and the miles and miles of compromises

this ain’t no life for the faint of hearted
this is a lesson, a lesson in letting go
we are busting out of this here stereo
