Story behind the song
Anybody that went to college with me (JP) knows who this is about. There's 3 years I'll never get back.
Lyrics
Your words weren't enough to keep you out of that City, It was a matter of time before the language dragged you in. (Heh) Apparently you've settled for a little freeloading, and a life the parents wage as a war on sin. Let's go girl the meter's running, it's running out of time. Pack up your flag, catch a bus, take the train That's leaving tonight for the great Sublime. She has never found someone that will follow her around, And try to understand. This shit's not in your college books, sister; Now, where's your fucking promised land? A room is filled with books, books filled with words snatched out here and there from backward dreams. And pictures of the ghosts and tableware and coffee cups and faded queens. Let's go girl the meter's running, it's running out of time. Pack up your flag, catch a bus, take the train That's leaving tonight for the great Sublime. Let's go girl the meter's running, it's running out of time. Pack up your flag, catch a bus, take the train That's leaving tonight for the great Sublime.
