Bookworm in the street:
Find something to read
There must be something to read.

Bookworm living free,
She's changing her hair
And changing me

Bookworm wants to leave
Find half of a job
With a half a degree

Quiet and complete
A stone in the stream
A bug on a leaf

So hold on to those plans
You've got the world between your hands
Teach them to read again

Bookworm's going home
Free food and a bed
Where the noises are slow

College locked her dreams
Inside of her head
Just out of her reach

"Get out of my head,"
I hope she says in her sleep
I hope she fights with the bed
I hope she tears through the sheets, until she's out of her head

"Get out of my head,"
I said in my sleep
"Get out of my head,"
I'm getting out of my lease
"Get out of my head,"
And I just want to get free
So hop off I-35, get on the exit with me
And we'll drive out of our heads
