“The Promised Land” by Bruce Springsteen

“Blow away the dreams that tear you apart. Blow away the dreams that break your heart. Blow away the lies that leave you nothing but lost and brokenhearted.”

On a rattlesnake speedway in the Utah desert
I pick up my money and head back into town
Driving cross the Waynesboro county line
I got the radio on and I’m just killing time
Working all day in my daddy’s garage
Driving all night, chasing some mirage
Pretty soon little girl I’m gonna take charge

The dogs on main street howl
‘Cause they understand
If I could take one moment into my hands

I’ve done my best to live the right way
I get up every morning and go to work each day
But your eyes go blind and your blood runs cold
Sometimes I feel so weak I just want to explode
Explode and tear this old town apart
Take a knife and cut this pain from my heart
Find somebody itching for something to start

The dogs on main street howl
‘Cause they understand
If I could reach one moment into my hands

Gonna be a twister to blow everything down
That ain’t got the faith to stand its ground
Blow away the dreams that tear you apart

The dogs on main street howl
‘Cause they understand
If I could take one moment into my hands

And I believe in a promised land

The Enduring Catholic Imagination of Bruce Springsteen

I'm routinely overestimated.
