american aquarium – cape fear river lyrics

Loading...

well i was born in the valley of the cape fear river
about a 30 minute drive to the south of virginia
a north star of this great state
at least that’s what the sign said

in a town where either had or you didnt
my daddy worked a 7 to 5 just to give me
a fighting chance to make it out
and not end up like him

well i aint the man
half the man my daddy was
half the man he wanted me to be

chorus:
so i packed up, cashed my chips and pointed that car east
no idea where i was going
anywhere but here’d worked for me
somehow i still think i made him proud
just by getting out

either you get locked up or you join the core
you work the grill and pete’s burgers and more
you buy a map and pick a spot, drive as fast as you can

cause falling down here is all too real
broken dreams and tobacco fields
hollow sh-lls with hardened eyes
that didn’t make it out

their either dropped out or knocked up
that high school girl that they thought they loved
now their life revolves around diapers and direct tv

we aren’t the men
we aren’t the men our fathers were
we aren’t the men they wanted us to be

chorus:
so i packed up, cashed my chips and pointed that car east
no idea where i was going
anywhere but here’d worked for me
somehow i still think i made him proud
just by getting out

well i was born in the valley of the cape fear river
about a 30 minute drive to the south of virginia
a north star of this great state
at least that’s what the sign said
