The Lyrics

I have taken the homesick lament of a young touring musician and morphed it to express the frustration of a modern-day Central American migrant. Click here for the original.
[Verse 1]
I'm sitting in a Trailways station
Got a ticket for prized Western nation, mmm
On a trek of one-night stands
I'm moving in this caravan
And every stop's discreetly planned
For a showdown at the Wonderland

[Chorus]
Northward bound
I wish no pause
Northward bound
North, where nigh lot's escaping
North, where my muse is straying
North, where high government brings
Ev'rything for free

[Verse 2]
Ev'ry day's an endless stream
Of bigger threats and MAGA screams, mmm
And each town looks the same to me
The moved-down U.S. factories
And each Hispanic face I see
Reminds me that I long to flee

[Chorus]
Northward bound
I've hitched in-laws
Northward bound
North, there find lots less raping
North, where no noose is swaying
North, where high government brings
Ev'rything for free

[Verse 3]
Tonight I'll sleep with throngs again
I'll say I'm lame and pretend, mmm
Americans attack poor me
Invading free democracy
I'm tempted by immunity
I need someone to comfort me

[Chorus]
Northward bound
I'll pitch my cause
Northward bound
North, where I've sought escaping
North, where I'll choose long staying
North, where I'd love no hating
Strident, we're more free
I meant legally

The "legally" part seems to be a bit of a challenge to the migrants.
