City of trees
And a pleasant breeze
Almost forget
I’m in the middle of a desert

Come for the scene
Stay for the dream
Of settlin’ down
And makin’ old jokes about the weather

I shake off invitations
For making new relations
Stupid higher purpose
Canceling vacations

‘Cause I’m here on business,
Not making friends
I have no interest in your city
No money for your trends

‘Cause I’m runnin’ low on time
20 years left in my prime
Before my efforts are exceptions
Or I find some new directions

I’ve been stuck in here for hours
In a old shop
Distracting me from work I’ve self-imposed

Is only a distraction
Like a catholic in reservation
But instead of God, it’s an art attraction

Every second I’m taking breaks
Is like a regrettable afterglow
It was better in the moment
And now I need to go
