I had disengaged to avoid being totaled
I would run away and say good riddance soon enough
I had grown disgusted by your small-minded ceiling
To imagine myself bolting had not been difficult

Soon be my life, soon be my pace
Soon be my choice of which you'll have no part of

Unprodigal daughter and I'm heading for the west
Disenchanted daughter and this plane cannot fly fast enough
Unencumbered daughter, hit the ground running at last
I'd invite you but I'm busy being unoppressed

I hit the ground running although I know not what toward
I hit the town reeling forgetting all that came before
I felt primed and ready, unsurrounded by the pawns
I felt culture shocked but dissuaded I was not

This is my town, this is my voice
This is my taste of what you've had no part of

Unprodigal daughter and I'm heading for the west
Disenchanted daughter and this plane cannot fly fast enough
Unencumbered daughter, hit the ground running at last
I'd invite you but I'm busy being unoppressed

One day I'll saddle back and speak of foreign adventures
One day I'll double back and tell you about these unfettered years
One day I'll look back and feel something other than relieved
Glad that I left when I did before your dear, can't get the best of me

When I'd speak of artistry you would roll your eyes skyward
When I'd speak of spirituality you would label it absurd
When I spoke of impossibility you would frown and shake your head
If I had stayed much longer I'd have surely imploded

These are my words, this is my house
These are my friends of which you've had no part of

Unprodigal daughter and I'm heading for the west
Disenchanted daughter and this plane cannot fly fast enough
Unencumbered daughter, hit the ground running at last
I'd invite you but I'm busy being unoppressed

Unprodigal daughter and I'm heading for the west
Disenchanted daughter and this plane cannot fly fast enough
Unencumbered daughter, hit the ground running at last
I'd invite you but I'm busy being unoppressed
