Story

Written August 26, 2002 in Moorhead, MN. Four years out of college I ran into an old friend who's spent the meantime in the military stationed in the middle east. After our conversation I felt like my day-to-day living was slightly less profound than I had once believed.

Lyrics

I drive this car up and down these streets And I play guitar up and down these songs This is how I spend my time; this is who I am This is how I spend my time; this is who I am But who are you? You can't tell me What do you do? You can't say Except you fly in a plane over there Over there You're fighting a war that no one can see except on tv And I wave my flag high in the land of the free Insignificant me I say thank you You smile like you've heard it before I don't know what to say to you I can't imagine the things you've seen But this is how you spend your time; this is who you are This is how you spend your time; this is who you are But who am I? I don't know this And would I die? I can't say Except I don't have to because of you Because of you You're fighting a war that no one can see except on tv And I wave my flag high in the land of the free Insignificant me This is who I am This is how I spend my time Insignificant 2003 Eric Addington Music ASCAP
