Common Rider – On Broadway lyrics

Everybody's going downtown tonight
To take a big bath in the sugary light
But I don't give a damn about the main attraction
'cause I walk to slow for that modern action

We're gonna go
Where we belong, be our own hero We will write our own game
We will go our own way

Everybody's going to the track tonight
To bet on the one with the mechanical eye
But I don't give a damn about a virtual horse
'cause it's got no rider and no remorse

Everybody's living in a mercury world
That breaks just like string of pearls
But I don't give a damn about a media jones
'cause I got deep roots in a field of my own
