about

This song is about missing your baby while at work. Also about: the pandemic, the beach, and the Inland Empire.

lyrics

Kay counts the lightbulbs in the vintage chandelier
Each cut glass sparkle represents a moment here
More than a waitress, she’s a curator with flair
And more than that she is a lynx caught in a snare

When you can’t find the beach
And your baby is twenty-five miles out-of-reach.
On a perfect day. Pick up flip, put on flop,
Hit the dirt or concrete with anyone you’ve got
So no one can say….that

“That girl doesn’t have a plan
Fishbelly white without a tan
The whole foundation’s made of sand"

Ron takes an order through a hole in plexiglass
Took home more cash back when he cut the neighbors’ grass
More than a man, he’s a cosmonaut in space
Been high all day because he misses his baby’s face

When you’re stuck in a tree
Inland Empire, 1000 miles from the sea
On a perfect day. Pick up flim, put on flam,
Get through the day, any old way you can
Ride the Milky Way

That guy is higher than the moon
Floating like a weather balloon
And it’s only half past noon

When you can’t find the beach
And your baby is twenty-five miles out-of- Reach.
On a perfect day. Pick up flip, put on flop,
Hit the dirt or concrete with anyone you’ve got
Anchors aweigh
