Track Name: New England Grey
Standing still has never been my strong suit
And I've been stagnant far too long in these four walls
I'm comfortable, but happiness eludes me
Just drowning out the highway's desperate calls

You barged into my life from a thousand miles away
I bowed my head, and you tore me from the root
Planted me in a brand new ecosystem
But I'm an invasive species, and I bear no fruit

So let's spray New England grey on this southern hospitality
Tell every "Bless your heart" that they can't get there from here
And let's bathe in ocean water to heal the harsh reality
Of never really knowing where we're gonna be next year

It hurts to know that winter is just around the corner
And the flowers will be covered by the snow
But nothing feels worse than when someone says they love you
And turns into someone you don't even know

The tethered ones will sneer at the freedom of the dreamers
Who can howl and wander anywhere they please
And I'm tired of contentment, and living in resentment
If you pass a map, I won't die on my knees

So let's spray New England grey on this southern hospitality
Tell every "Bless your heart" that they can't get there from here
And let's bathe in ocean water to heal the harsh reality
Of never really knowing where we're gonna be next year
