This song was a personal anthem for me in high school. Always playing in my inner ear.
"... any escape might help disprove the unattractive truth, but the suburbs have no charms to soothe the restless dreams of youth ... "
Or to quote Neil's lyrics from another tune ...
"... no changes are permanent -- but change is."
Truth. Always simple truth. Unmatched rock and roll lyrical skills.
And those DRUMS! Good God!
