lyrics

don't know what you do, but i know where to find you
take comfort in consistency of your sense of place
but rewarding people for never growing
is inherently strange

i don't proclaim to have invented the lever
but like to think i'm not resistant to change
you felt a new hampshire / maine amount of whatever
and went back to your day

change is good
if you never leave you'll never learn anything
change, it comes anyway

change is good
stop lamenting how you thought it would always be
take a minute, buy a ticket, hop a train and escape

you never got away from the dumb town you grew up in
and the silly jerks you called your friends in your teens
you'll always play the roles that you played in high school
and you will never leave

we're all attracted to what we find familiar
but now i think that that might be a mistake
you felt a new hampshire / maine amount of whatever
and figured why not just stay
