This town really sucks like you wouldn't believe
I'm sick and tired of the same old things
Can we just pack up and leave?
I hate my band and I hate the scene
I never liked guitar, I'm not a rockstar
But I know how I'll feel free

So I'll just say goodbye to the blue sky
Let's run away together
Don't you worry, I'll play the flute for money

What'd you expect, it's only been a day
I don't know Philly like I did Baltimore
Just give it time and wait
I've made some good tips, that guy gave me five bucks
He may have thought that we were homeless
But still that's pretty good luck

So I'll just say goodbye to the blue sky
Let's run away together
Don't you worry, I'll play the flute for money

It's been three months and we're still on the streets
The flute may have been a bad idea, I'd prefer just to eat
I'm really hungry and I've seen better days
I think I need some medicine for the lesions on my face

So I'll just say goodbye to the blue sky
Let's run away together
Don't you worry, I'll play the flute for money

So much for flute, I wasn't as good as I thought
It'd be wise to leave Philadelphia and go home before I rot
But I think I'll stay and I'm not sure why
Let's stay on track, too late to go back
Keep fluting till I die

So I'll just say goodbye to the blue sky
Let's run away together
Don't you worry, I'll play the flute for money

And uh, that's the end
Blegh
