ohio ohio ohio

i'm leaving you for good one of these days

it's not too bad but the suburbs are what's killing me

i want the country, or the city

in between is too depressing and fucked and apathetic to handle

in two years i'll only returning to see the kids who said they were leaving for good and never ended up doing it

my parents are moving next summer, out into the country in indiana

i'm not going to stay here obviously

jessica says, want to move to new york city for a few years and be my roommate after graduation

kristin says, come to spain with me after college, we'll work on organic farms and i could make furniture and we'll just exist on another continent, free from the tangles of the lonesome crowded midwest

noreen says come to the pacific northwest, you'd fit in so well dear

so many choices

and i like college but i also want freedom, i want to get out of here and i want my life to belong to me for the first time truly, in my life

artist collectives in maine looking enticing

my brother in missourri or south carolina, he can't make up his mind

so many places to go

so many lookin' better than this dead street where people are safer from physical violence than everyone else in the entire world and they still keep their porch lights on

burning and wasting electricty

to keep tabs on their property

promise, promise, promise to myself

i'm going to leave, we're going to be better off

in the woods, whether it's composed of greens or composed of concrete
