lyrics

I see the way out
but this is just beginning
Every new word that I shout
is an anchor that I'm sending

To the bottom of the ocean of this town
I thought that I'd eventually come around

But I'm more than content
working 50 hour weeks if it means
that I can be where I want to be every weekend
instead of away from all my friends
I know it's hard to understand
And it looks short-sighted or wishful
But looking at the sun set over Wisconsin
Writing songs and getting by
That's all I could ask for

I've been in this neighborhood
for as long as I remember
I've been told that it's no good
and I should venture onward
I could just get out
and find a new beginning
but if I gave up now
it would be my dreams that I'd be sending

To the bottom of the ocean of this town
I thought that I'd eventually come around

But I'm more than content
working 50 hour weeks if it means
that I can be where I want to be every weekend
instead of away from all my friends
I know it's hard to understand
And it looks short-sighted or wishful
But looking at the sun set over Wisconsin
Writing songs and getting by
That's all I could ask for

But at times the air grows thin
and I think about what could've been
If I'd gone away and did what they say
Would I be more than what I am today?
It's not too late to pick up slack
I could walk away without looking back
I might even get my life on track
but what would I have if I couldn't say that I'm

More than content
working 50 hour weeks if it means
that I can be where I want to be every weekend
instead of away from all my friends
I know it's hard to understand
And it looks short-sighted or wishful
But looking at the sun set over Wisconsin
Writing songs and getting by
That's all I could ask for
