lyrics

She knows
She knows all the homes
Are separated by the same old tonic traffic lines

She knows
All the songs on the radio
Fit inside those fifteen minute gaps that you will drive
Those fifteen minutes last as long
as you can stand to drive

I'm trying to keep my head empty for you babe
I'm trying not to say much of anything

The dreamy grass will grow
As long as you can stretch your garden hose
As long as you can keep your neighbor city's envy dry
Planting the trees and the Starbucks mini-malls
Where the ecologies predict they'll grow
Like mutual index funds in Chinese commerce farms
And the police sip their marijuana health shakes
In the parking lots

I'm trying to keep my head empty for you babe
I'm trying not to say much of anything
I dream in garden green
But I'm dying not to settle into anything
