"Nobody is worth your tears, the one who is will never make you cry."


I live in a town,
Too small to see,
Not on a map,
Or in the key,
I live in a state,
People don't know,
NO not potatoes,
It's corn we grow,
I live in a country,
Where gasoline is our middle name,
Where we polluted the earth,
Yes we're the one to blame,
I live in a world,
Of many nations,
It's just to bad,
There is so much discrimination,
I live in a country,
Where Freedom isn't Free,
Where tomorrow I might be rich or homeless,
We will just have to see,
I live in a state,
Of farmers and hicks,
A place where rednecks,
Live in the sticks,
I live in a town,
Where everyone knows your name,
But I'm proud to live here,
Nowhere else would be the same.

I live in a place where things might not be perfect, but I just can't see myself living anywhere else.
