lyrics

All I want’s to go home, but that’s not in the cards
I’ve been staring South and sighing ever since I crashed my car
It got smashed up like a squeeze box in the light December rain
That truck drove away unscathed, but in Normal I remain

Stuck here in Normal at the end of the world
Stuck here in Normal at the end of the world
If you’re hearing this song, it means I got out alive
From being stuck in Normal at the end of the world

I booked a Greyhound home but then the weather went to shit
Every bus was cancelled on the evening of my trip
The next night’s Greyhound bus showed up a couple hours late
I missed the next one down the line because of the delay

Stuck in St. Louis at the end of the world
Stuck in St. Louis at the end of the world
If you’re hearing this song, it means I got out alive
From being stuck in St. Louis at the end of the world

Midnight of December 21, 2012
No sign of Armageddon, but I think this might be Hell
Waiting at the station for longer than it’d take to drive
They’ll make a six hour trip last twelve and that’s if the bus arrives

Stuck on a Greyhound at the end of the world
Stuck on a Greyhound at the end of the world
If you’re hearing this song, it means I got out alive
From being stuck on a Greyhound at the end of the world

The sunrise on the North side of my hometown stung my eyes
No idea when I last slept, but it seems that I survived
Now let’s see how long it takes until I want to leave
Those Mayan priests were liars so I guess I'm relieved?

Stuck here in Springfield at the end of the world
Stuck here in Springfield at the end of the world
If you’re hearing this song, it means I got out alive
From being stuck here in Springfield at the end of the world
