I can close my eyes and see the streets of a thousand towns

Greenville, neenah, portland, sparks

I see the package stores, bait shops, strip clubs, row houses

I hear them sing over the rattle of the chain stores,

The rat racers strung out on status,

The Hipsters just day-sleep like cats.

The world can spin you dizzy

But I keep it in the eye of a needle

and my songs are the salty drops from the oceans

by which we came.

Anywhere is where we are.

Even when Iā€™m safe at home

 I hear the same faint-familiar song

and try to work it through my old guitar.
