Gresham Central in the rain,
A sighing train, the little void inside me
The mountain’s shrouded in the east,
For now at least, there’s nothing else to look for
They took the sofa and the chair,
And raised the fare, there’s nothing to see here

We need a place to go and some way to get there
When this world feels small, but so spread apart
We need a living room, not just the private space
We work all day just to afford

The cold, wet concrete smell is strong,
The wait is long; they cut the service again
The bus I need has gone away,
Another day, another missed connection
I kick a stone off of the curb,
It feels absurd to be so stranded here


What’s it even for when I walk out of the door
To a million places I don’t belong?
After every inch is owned,
And there’s nowhere left to roam,
Will we realize how much we’ve lost?
