Subway trains

All the dreams I had

On the commute train in and out of my suburban hometown

Watching the railroad tracks converge and diverge

Evolve into backyards and graffiti

The songs I listened to about how I was going to be a better person tomorrow

Smarter, richer, more powerful

The dreams never added up to anything

When I got my chance to escape it came by chance

There was no cause and effect

No underlying motive

Just because I could

You don’t need a reason to leave only a reason to stay in society

Following these rules

Going to the office

Smiling in the morning
