Dropping Out of the Race


“A pure romantic I am… This has gotten me in trouble! Like Escape, we want to throw our lives away on another person…defy society…and free ourselves… Marriage 2 – I met an Australian Bombshell while on a tour in Europe, and married her 72 days later on Shark Island in the middle of Sydney Harbor… This one has a particularly saturated tape highlight guitar that I love! The needles were in the RED! You can’t get this type of sound from digital recording!”


I live a skyscraper life in a business suite and wear a college ring
I face a ladder climb that grows higher with time, oh I don’t feel like I have a thing
There was a girl I knew from somewhere back in school I let slip away
I’ll leave a note on my desk with no forward address
And I’ll pack up the car today
 
Yes I’m dropping out of the race, it’s my great escape
I’ve got no interest in fashion or fame or people that time will change
Oh you know I’ve got an interest in you, you’re my heart’s desire
Yes I’m dropping out of the race today
 
I want an ocean view or a mountain scene, I want a lota things
And I want to let go of most things that I know, except what I think is sane
I need a lot of time that I know is mine to uncomplicate
A life that was always filled with staggering social bills
That I could never pay
 
Yes I’m dropping out of the race, it’s my great escape
I’ve got no interest in fashion or fame or people that time will change
Oh you know I’ve got an interest in you, you’re my heart’s desire
Yes I’m dropping out of the race today
 
I live a skyscraper life and wear a college ring
And this business suite, don’t mean anything
 
I’ll be sitting on your doorstep in the morning when you awake
And when you throw back the blinds I’ll be there in your sight
And I think that you’ll know what this means
