about

Based on the novel.

lyrics

I heard the Bostonians
Keeping classic thoughts in their throats
Sowing their domesticated oats
Can’t it wait?

You have to remember when things get rough
The train will be hitting you soon enough
So cry or get off the tracks
If you didn’t have a handle, you wouldn’t have an axe

You’ll never know, you’ll never know
You’ll never know, you’ll never know
He says if I can’t ever know, I don’t wanna know

I can see the Bostonians
The trick is to cover your eyes
When they reappear you realize
Can’t you hear them now?

Things that I don’t know are not important to me
So I am a Bostonian, if that’s what I want to be

You’ll never know etc.

I don’t need the Bostonians
Telling me what they see as the deal
Constantly upgrading their appeal
Can’t you hear them now?

It’s what you wanted to be not so long ago
Don’t waste time trying to learn what you don’t need to know
I heard the Bostonians singing a famous song
You’re a citizen of where you are, not where you belong

You’ll never know etc...
