hoffaville

the day always comes to get you
no matter how far off in the distance you thought it was
it's here
knocking at your door
ready to come in and roll past you
i thought i had more time
where did it all go?
the day is here
months of waiting
and preparing
over

little G fast asleep
no idea what's in store for him tomorrow
i wanna crawl inside his mind
and forget it all
wash away all my grownup instincts
oh to be unaware of the machinery of this world

it's just shy of 3am
all is quiet
all is still
kind of eerie
the tension welling up inside of me
excitement
and dread
i see the lines
detection devices
chaos
mis-trust
the frantic rush of travelers
my guitar disappearing on a conveyor belt
gotta block those thoughts outta my mind tonight
the observer wants to observe
from right here in this chair
in this safe house
don't wanna go nowhere
i know it'll be fun once i'm there
but right now it all seems too risky
see
i told you there's a man in concrete shoes
that lives inside of me
he's invaded my house tonight
tomorrow i promise i'll be better

Bon voyage! Keep us posted! I really hope you have a great time. Not a bad situation, honestly: iPod time, then play your music for fans in another land/see new things with the fam for days and days, then more iPod time.

Let us know if it's as peachy as it sounds!
