A state told in three parts/Everybody's always from Ohio


Being born in Ohio tells you how a life will go
Humid city streets at dusk friends and cars all full of rust
And your mother’s full of doubt cause your dad keeps runnin out
Always lookin to move west where the sun don’t ever set
There’s a city on the shore thirty miles to the north
Country exurbs all abound your best friend’s fathers dying out
Go to school or blow it up ultimatums made you tough
Dreaming of old city streets the family frame keeps growing weak
Ohio x4
We used to work for the college on the weekend
Let us keep our long hair like a vagrant
Eventually our sister went and got married
Drink it up cause there’s gonna be some babies
We used to work for the college on the weekend
Come home just to sit and stare at nothing
Stood up to leave, “I don’t wanna be a bother”
Looked at me, “Do you remember our father?
And how we used to think that we were gonna save him?
Or was it ever the other way around?
Sometimes I don’t like myself for nothin’
So I drive around and around.
Took a rabbit in a cage with a shotgun
Couldn’t stand its eyes lookin’ out
Every night it’s just me and television
So I gotta find a better way out…
Ain’t no city close to me country boys in boot cut tees
Fifty years stuck in the past shotgun racks and cowboy hats
Said you were a transient, that don’t make any fucking sense
Seven years stuck on the farm I still got these old skinny arms
