lyrics

Gasoline is cheap, let’s go find the real America
Eat apple pie in diners and parade through barren fairgrounds
If I don’t leave the rust belt, man, I swear I’ll go hysterical
Let’s max out this odometer and find the real America

Though I meant to be content within the state that I reside
I cannot help but find the other forty-nine on my mind

The wine-dark grass of the prairie
The silhouette of plows at sunset
10 acre orchards filled with nothing but cherries
A dazzling scent you could never forget

This is the real, this is the real, this is the real America
This is the real, this is the real, this is the real America
This is the real, this is the real, this is the real America

It’s just my luck to have grown up on Niagara Falls, where rapids bind
I’m out to find the other forty-nine where sunshine never dies

D.C. holds our history
Florida’s got the glades
And Disney World and pretty girls who wear short shorts everyday
The West Coast has the best roast
New England towns are so profound
I’m not sure what happens in Utah but I’d sure like to find out

The West Coast suffers earthquakes
New England towns think they’re profound
I drove through central Utah and all I saw were cows
Our capitol is staffed with crooks
The bible belt believes in tomes
Florida’s swarming with decrepit old folks in retirement homes

Hey, where’d all the bison go?
Hey, where’d all the bison go?
Hey, where’d all the bison go?
Hey, where’d all the bison go?
I want to go home

There is no real, there is no real, there is no real America
There is no real, there is no real, there is no real America
There is no great, idealized state that will liberate your heart
Don't wait to start living, just create art wherever you are
Don't wait to start living, just create art wherever you are
