Modest Mouse
This is a Long Drive for Someone With Nothing to Think About (1996)
Novocaine Stain

When I can work out how it was
Then I'll tell you
TV stained my memories, yeah
I don' think that she's...
Remember her sounds
Remember her smells
Remember her colors
Remember the towns
With fear and fascination
On what was here
And what's replacing them now
Interchange causes a mall
And crowded chain restaurants
More housing developments go up
Named after the things they replace
So welcome to Minnow Brook
And welcome to Shady Space
And it all seems a little abrupt
No I don't like this change of pace
