Head South

This song is by Modest Mouse and appears on the album This is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About (1996).

A surf rock band
From the land of plenty
Surf rock bands
With no surf, just pine trees

Struck by being ashamed of your old space
Just wanted that mean heat
You bleached your hair and you pawned your skis
And then you sold out for the shade of the palm tree scene
And said, "Oh what a drag, oh what a backwards scheme"
'Cause here, things go from gray to gray, then back to gray again
And they get green, then go to gray and go back to gray again, so he said

Head south, head south, head south, head south
Head south, head south, head south, head south
Head south, head south, head south, head south
Head south, head south, head south, head south

Struck by being ashamed of your old space
Just wanted that mean heat
You bleached your hair and you pawned your skis
And then you sold out for the shape of the palm tree scene
Sit around in cutoff jeans and cutoff jeans are what you mean when you say

Head south, head south, head south, head south
Head south, head south, head south, head south
Head south, head south, head south, head south
