The other day, I was listening to 102.1 FM here in Toronto and they played "Comin' Home" by City and Colour. I had already heard "Save Your Scissors" and although I don't know who Alexis is or why she's on fire, I thought it was a nice enough song. But I was put off by this lyric in "Comin' Home"
I've been to Lincoln, NebraskaI've never been to Lincoln, but I think it's pointless and somewhat immature for the song's protagonist to put a place down like that. Then again, the performer hails from a band whose Internet domain name is "the only band ever." I shouldn't expect too much.
and hell you know it ain't worth shit
The only other character I know of that might dislike Lincoln is Aurora Greenway. Her daughter died there, in a hospital room, in Terms of Endearment.
