lyrics

Mount Scott is shining in the air
Bright light refractions burn away every care
And distant, swaying evergreens
Gaze down upon the mass of motor machines and strip malls
The evening breeze feels like a welcoming embrace,
And soon you’ll get to take off that stupid polo shirt
Maybe you’ll find some time to see friends face to face,
For a night, all the night is yet to come

Mount Scott is shining in the air
Bright light illuminates machines taking fare
The screech and rattle of the tracks,
Anticipation as you see the next MAX train and know
You will not suffer at that counter anymore,
Well at least no more until tomorrow
No mopping grime up off that greasy food court floor,
For a night, for a night it’s in the past

Mount Scott is shining in the air
Nothing to do but sit back, space out and stare
Clack! Clack! Someday, you think, someday
These clacking wheels will carry you far away from here
