Ticket To Leave

Hey mister, hey mister
Talkin on my TV
Promising this, pointing to that
Wow-it feels just like you’re talkin to me

For a minute you had me
For a second you got me
Good-bye yesterday
Then you talk about future,
Talk about change
But how am I gonna get through
today?

Up we go down we go
Free fallin, free fallin
Wheels spinnin’, whistle blowin
Banks callin’
Calling me
Their ticket to win
My ticket to leave

Hey mister, hey mister
Tell me it’s gonna come true
Save our house if you’re able,
Put food on our table
Help me find a common job I can do

And I want to believe
I need to believe
But I can’t pay my mortgage with hope
Or whatever you call it, the dust in
my wallet
Is stuck like the lump in my throat

Up we go, down we go
Free fallin, free fallin

Wheels spinnin’, whistle blowin’
It’s calling, calling me
With my heart on my sleeve
Got my ticket to leave

And when I go I’ll take you with me
I don’t know where but any place is better
We’ll hide away, we’ll change our names
Sleep in a van, live off the land
We’ll hide away, we’ll fly away
Fly away…

Up we go, down we go
Free fallin, free fallin
Wheels spinnin’, whistle blowin’
Land of the free
Don’t come lookin’ for me
I’m on a ticket to leave

Hey mister, hey mister
Four more years
Hey mister, hey
What do I do with all of these tears
