shortcut to moncton lyrics – i mother earth

yeah, between the doors, shakin’ heads
and thinking light about who you’re with, where you are
blue lightning hittin’ trees and lighting roads
won’t let me get too down
’cause sometimes you can be let down

you move on ahead in quicksand
you hope you’re still goin’ east boy
it’s dreamy all day drives and short parades
and i won’t let it mess with my head
just grin and live it while you can with wonderment

with eyes wide open
i’m taking in all i can
the small town darkness
is singing by in trance
i’m feeling glad

you and your friends drink, laugh and p*ss out
keeping good things close
fought till the end, it’s hard to keep it all fun
but i won’t let it mess with my head
won’t let it mess with sleeping friends or their wonderment

with eyes wide open
i’m taking in all i can
the small town darkness
is singing by in trance
i’m feeling wierd

though the day’s been really long
i still feel i’m close to nowhere
and i wouldn’t let no one take my place, oh, no one
oh yeah, a warm bed in my head
i can see the tidal wave of disappointment

see the lights shining over there
through the night i am on the way
on the way, on the way
on the way, on the way

with eyes wide open
i’m taking in all i can
the small town darkness
is singing by in trance
i’m

with eyes wide open
i’m taking in all i can
the small town darkness
is singing by in trance
i’m feeling glad
