Nowhere Else is the Dreamer or the Misfit So Alone

Subdivisions icon-external-link-12x12 icon-search-12x12 (track 01 from the Signals LP by Rush icon-external-link-12x12 icon-search-12x12 )

Sprawling on the fringes of the city
In geometric order
An insulated border
In between the bright lights and the far unlit unknown

Growing up it all seems so one-sided
Opinions, all provided
The future pre-decided
Detached and subdivided in the mass production zone

Nowhere else is the dreamer or the misfit so alone

Subdivisions
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out

Subdivisions
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out

Any escape might help to smooth the unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe the restless dreams of youth

Drawn like moths we drift into the city
The timeless old attraction
Cruising for the action
Lit up like a firefly just to feel the living night

Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats and get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere to relax their restless flight

Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights

Subdivisions
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out

Subdivisions
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out

Any escape might help to smooth the unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe the restless dreams of youth
