In the song Sexton mentions "The Little Gem Diner off six niner". This is a real diner located in Syracuse, NY off Highway 690 and it's open 24/7. Sexton used to hang out there when he was growing up. He claims that many of his songs were written while drinking coffee in The Little Gem.

The Songfacts staff used to eat at The Little Gem, usually late at night. We strongly recommend it.
Joe from Bellerose, NyI heard this song for the first time today and it truly made me smile. It is a complex yet extremely happy song and will make a welcomed addition to my IPOD. Thanks for the music!
Alvin from Sioux Center, IaHahaha. Awesome. I wish there were diners around here, or any type of family eating place, but we only have mcdonalds.
