my lyricsbox
The banks of the river run through my hometown

As a boy I ran the dirt roads and I scraped my knees

Well, they paved the roads eventually

With neon signs and car dealerships and diners

The soldiers fill the hotels on the weekends

I saw the pretty women as I walked through town

Well, I moved away soon as I turned sixteen

Figured I was old enough to go and work a job

Well, I floated down main street, pools of car lights

Overcame me wishing, I was still back home

The soldiers fill the hotels on the weekends

I saw the pretty women as I walked through town

Well, Jacksonville's a city with a hopeless streetlight

Seems like you're lucky, if it ever change from red to green

I was born in an abundance of inherited sadness

And .50 cent picture frames bought at a five and dime

I ended up a soldier on the weekend

Looking for a vacancy I was unable to find

Somewhere the night sky hangs like a blanket

Shoot it with my cap gun just to make it, seem like stars
This song is from the album "Pneumonia".
