Can't Get There from Here

When the world is a monster Bad to swallow you whole Kick the clay that holds the teeth in Throw your trolls out the door

If you're needing inspiration Philomath is where I go Lawyer Jeff he knows the low down
He's mighty bad to visit home

(I've been there I know the way)
Can't get there from here
(I've been there I know the way)
Can't get there from here
(I've been there I know the way)
Can't get there from here
(I've been there I know the way)

When your hands are feeling empty Stickheads jumping off the ground Tris is sure to shirr the deers out Brother Ray can sing my song

(I've been there I know the way)
Can't get there from here
(I've been there I know the way)
Can't get there from here
(I've been there I know the way)
Can't get there from here
(I've been there I know the way)
Hands down, Calechee bound
And locked, kiss the ground The dirt of seven continents going Round and round Go on ahead Mr. Citywide Hypnotize, suit and tie Gentlemen testify

If your world is a monster Bad to swallow you whole Philomath they know the low-down Throw your trolls out the door

(I've been there I know the way)
Can't get there from here
(I've been there I know the way)
Can't get there from here
(I've been there I know the way)
Can't get there from here
(I've been there I know the way)
