I am a citizen, a friend and a neighbor
(Towing the line, towing the line)
I'm always keeping on my best behaviour
(Towing the line, towing the line)
I like to think I like to try to, try to do what's right
But still I get this feeling that I can't deny
I tell myself I'm better than the average lot
But I'm not
I know it
And I'm about to show it

(Chorus)
So take me downtown on a company dime
Punch me in the arm, make sure I'm alive
I need a weekend
Gotta kick out the dust
Get my motor running 'cause it's starting to rust
Shake it off, turn me on, turn me on
I've been down on the ground for too long
So take me downtown
Take me downtown, down, down, down

I'm a professional, the family is stable
(Towing the line, towing the line)
We join hands for the prayer at the table
(Towing the line, towing the line)
I like to think I try to, try to do what's right
I go rolling in the dirt, but I clean up nice
I tell myself I'm better than the average lot
But I'm not
I know it
And I'm about to show it

(Chorus)

I wanna feel, to feel so far away
I wanna feel, to feel so far away
To feel so far away
I wanna feel

(Chorus)
