Westbound Sign Lyrics

Boxed up all her favorite things
Sold the rest at the rainy yard sale
Big plans and leaving friends and a westbound sign
Weighed out her choices on a scale
Prevaling nothing made sense
Just transportation and a blank decision
She's taking off

No time, no copping out
She's burning daylight and petrol
Black out the mirror heading west ward on
Strung out on confusion road
And 10 minutes nervous break downs
Xanax a beer for thought
And she's determined
She's taking off

Is this salvation
Or an escape from discontent
Will she find her name
In the California cement?
Punched out of the grind
That punched her one too many times
Is tragedy 2,000 miles away?

She's taking off
