    I feel like this song relates to me in that I just graduated from a small college and I am now back in my home area (Lansing, MI) and I feel like this place has changed so much and life in general has changed so much.
    I have a burning desire to leave. I feel like a tourist here, I dont really know people here any more and I feel like its time to move on but idk where. I feel like I have found myself to be a villain in the story I have written. I need to make some redemptions, set what is wrong into right and leave and start a new life somewhere else.
