The Lyrics

When a ma-an drives off pavement...shit gets bad.

Want to get off it
Got to get off it
Want to get off it

E'vry single day, my car's forced to go over (over, over, over, over)
This pitiful-ass lane, my poor axles weep with all the dirt that flies
They hurt to be so caked in mud, frustrated is all I've been
The country up and sucks, no, I don't mean national
I mean place-with-no-city-contact

Dirt lane road, I want to get off it
Dirt lane road, I've got to get off it
Dirt lane road, I want to get off it
Cause it's crap, so crap, crap, crap, crap
This dirt lane road, I want to get off it
Dirt lane road, I've got to get off it
Dirt lane road, I want to get off it
Dirt lane road

God, this sucks, 'fraid so, 'fraid so, afraid so
God, this sucks, 'fraid so, 'fraid so, irate

Wind up my windows so I've no problems breathin' (breathin', breathin', breathin')
Though it still clouds my focus, front window's caked in dust
And my brain is on a fraught tether
And I can't make more patience, it's all gone away
I won't slow down, cause slowin' down's worth shit
Gets more dust in the wheels, makes more friction, it grinds things up
And I won't take any of that here, won't fly

Dirt lane road, I wish I could stop it
Dirt lane road, I'm stuck drivin' on it
Dirt lane road, I wish I could stop it
Dirt lane road

Blown dust jammed my Mitsubishi
Blown dust wrecked both of my last two Holdens
Blown dust made my poor Audi crash hard
Blown dust, it makes me wish the bus came by this way

Won't ask "Hey, could you be a taxi, taxi for me?"
An asshole? Not me, your car matters, matters to you
Can't ask it of you, would just smash up, smash up your Dodge
I'll smash my own shit 'fore I use that Uber thing

Want to stay off it, dirt lane road
But there's no options, dirt lane road
Dirt lane road, I want to stay off it
But I can't, I can't, can't, can't, can't (dirt lane road)
Dirt lane road, I've got no more options
Dirt lane road, dirt lane

I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't
Can't stay, stay, stay, stay
Home, home, home, home
Now, now, now, now

I'm guessing this guy's not too fond of "Body Like a Back Road" know on top of all the other reasons to hate that song.
