“Stroll”

Stroll
words by Aaron Levitz and Dan Flores
music by the Velveteen

I’m going for a stroll and I’m never coming back.
I got no suitcases or bags, ‘cause there’s nothing left to pack.

I might leave in a car, or a boat, or a choo-choo-train.
I wanna find a place to escape from inside-a my brain.
This god forsaken world’s gone a-rolling off the track.
That’s why I’m going for a stroll, and I’m never coming back.

I’m going for a stroll and I ain’t coming back!
I’m going for a stroll and I ain’t coming ba-ack!
I’m going for a stroll and I ain’t coming back!
I’m going for a stroll and I’m never coming back!

You put in forty hours to keep a roof over your head.
Keep your nose against the grindstone, and work until you’re dead.
I’ve seen the finish line and it’s no place I wanna be.
Walkin’ straight into the ocean and I’m floating out to sea.

I’m walking off the planet, heading out through endless space.
’till I’m far enough away that I don’t see your stupid face.
This god forsaken world’s gone a-rolling off the track.
That’s why I’m going for a stroll, and I’m never coming back.
