Big Country has you brainwashed into thinking back roads are real 
they're not, nothing within 25 miles of an interstate is back road 
nothing within 10 miles of US highway is back road 
there are no back roads in America 
this is all a trick played by Big Country 
to make you think a new truck loan 
and going to Wal-Mart is a rural identity 
but it's not, you don't grow things, you don't build things, 
America is a giant plot, completely plotted out 
everything on-the-grid, nary a back road to be found 
google mapped into tax plats 
we are living a fraud 
your guns are just more materialism 
all your points are hollow 
all your dirt roads have had gravel laid down by the state 
your mud bogging is performative faux-freebird wildness 
you are not even a cog in a machine any more 
not even a column in a spreadsheet 
you are just a single cell 
to be concatenated 
into submission
