Reasons

turn-arround

The waiter gives his funny face for tips
The cleaner knows but seals his lips
The captains mate she knows the drill
A steady job, a bitter pill

The radio spreads out the word of god
‘You’ll go to heaven if you do not’
The beggars pretext you don’t believe
The fiver I gave for my relieve

And as the sun sets over paradise
While sipping diet coke on ice
I remember home so far away
And know the reasons not to stay

The size of people, the shape of cars
The sunny losers, the outdoor bars
The kick you’ll get , the money you spend
The empty feeling at another days end

The donut for breakfast, the pizza for lunch
The bucket of chicken for diner or brunch
The price of water exceeding the oil
The overacting, overkill and spoil

And as the sun sets over paradise
While sipping diet coke on ice
I remember home so far away
And know the reasons not to stay

The silicone breasts and augmented lips
The golden string around her hips
The boy that becomes a spoiled brad
The never around but hardworking dad

The justice for all who can afford to pay
The money you’ll need if you’ve got something to say
The land of the brave and the land of the free
It’s the land that didn’t succeed in fooling me

And as the sun sets over paradise
While sipping diet coke on ice
I remember home so far away
And know the reasons not to stay
