lyrics

I'll think of a mean old place to come from, and I'll say I'm from there
I'll construct my name from poets and musicians
And try to live this down

I'll live under the radar, no one will even mention
I'll blend into the background, not looking for redemption
I'm trying to live this down

No form of identification, it's all just a memory
And I tried to forget, but you wouldn't let me
So I'm thinking what to do, and where to go
And try to live this down

I'll think of a mean old place to come from, and I'll say I'm from there
I'll live under the radar, no one will even mention
No form of identification, it's all just a memory
I'm trying to leave this town
