  • In the lobby of the LRC
    Well, I knew I'd find something
    A hundred stories sittin' there to read
    I got my focals out, I put 'em on

    And all is calm, all is calm

    There's a doggie coming here to eat now
    Which dated back to 1993
    I don't care what the people say 'cause
    That dog, he don't come around here anymore

    No, no the dog is gone, the dog is gone
    No, no the dog is gone, the dog is gone

    The town is so small
    How could anybody not
    Look you in the eyes?
    The way that you drive by

    The world is such a wonderful place
    The world is such a wonderful

    I see everyone before me, there was birthday sex and sleep
    Some weren't getting along
    Nobody's outside trying to murder
    Nobody's outside, there's no one really at all

    What the hell I saw, the hell I saw
    The hell I saw, the hell I saw

    The town is so small
    How could anybody not
    Look me in the eyes?
    The way that I drive by

    The world is such a wonderful place
    The world is such a wonderful place
    The world is such a wonderful place
    The world is such a wonderful place
    La-dee-dah, la-dee-dah, la-dee-dah, la-dee-dah Writer/s: BENJAMIN BRIDWELL, CREIGHTON BARRETT, ROB HAMPTON

    A logger with log book or a registry of patients giving birth. Having sex. N sleeping it off.
