about

About something we've all wanted to do at times - run away from your problems and start over someplace else, and why that's not such a great idea.

lyrics

This is a joke. 
A boat with lots of holes that doesn't float.
A faded fable scribbled on a post it note. 
Now listen to me read it cause its from the book I wrote. 
So are you taking notes? 
I'm telling you it's cold so you can bring a coat.
The best laid plans were laid before I ever cast my vote

Now I'm running from a ghost. 
And it's following me everywhere I go. 
Gonna steal your car and drive it coast to coast 
Cuz I sold mine when I thought I would never need to go. 
But now I'm running, so lets go. 

No one man's got a say in what the future holds. 
It's all been figured out and we just ebb and flow. 
You're leaving home to find you know the way back, don't you? But you don't know the way. 
Look at you of little faith. Believe it cause I'm running from a ghost. 

And it's following me everywhere I go. 
Gonna steal your car and drive it coast to coast 
Cuz I sold mine when I thought I would never need to go. 

It's not a cold. 
It doesn't go away if you just sleep a lot. 
So bite your lip and give it every little thing you got
Cause I'm running

And it's following me everywhere I go. 
And it tells me all that I'm supposed to know.
Gonna steal your car and drive it coast to coast 
Cuz I sold mine when I thought I would never need to go.
