How long has it been since I left that town
Where the two-faced doublespeaking backstabbers
Keep their yards clean but thrive on filth

I'm light years away now, but still not far enough
Such a long way to go to reach the monolith
Shed this skin, become a starchild

Old dreams hang on washing lines in backyards
Curl with the dead leaves in winter
I drag mine with me to the terminal

No matter how cumbersome they become I refuse
To drop them and walk backwards
I remain in the process of Becoming
2001, echoes, and a phone call to "home".

Sounds like every town I've ever lived in. One learns to keep to one's self.

The city I live in now is so much better, it doesn't have that small-town mentality.

I know that sort of mentality only too well. I've had to live with it way too many times.
