lyrics

GOING NOWHERE

another town tonight
a bar with neon lights
all the locals sit there looking for a fight
above the empty chairs
the hockey game blares
no one notices you're there

stay home tonight
you're going nowhere here
and you're going nowhere fast
stay home tonight
you're going nowhere now
and you're gonna get there fast

when you look in the mirror
you wish that you weren't here
ten thousand miles from everything that you hold dear
in a world of philistines
you're david with a sling
but you got nothing up your sleeve

stay home tonight
you're going nowhere here
and you're going nowhere fast
you should have stayed home tonight
you're going nowhere now
and you're gonna get there fast
you'll get there fast
