The Lyrics

When you think of a scenic view, what comes to mind? Grassy meadows? Tree-lined hills, maybe? Not according to this dude's friend, apparently!
Promised me we'd go out, I've been stressed out all damn week
Little relaxation is exactly what I need
And I was all set to go but I guess I didn't know
Diff'rent definitions on the things I wanna see
Drive by the ocean, see some wild deer
Don't wanna start some ragin'
You show me barren plants that made beer
Sorry, that's not the same thing

All I wanted was somethin' to calm my mind
Calm my mind, calm my mind
Lovely view of trees, maybe some hills in sight
Fields in sight, birds in sight
Don't you know the things I want to calm my mind?
Scenic drive, get it right
I wanted the weekend to be great
And not simply extra pain

Bright town lights? Burnt-out shacks? How are they a sight to see?
Thought I'd given context in clear crystal clarity
This whole friggin' week has blown, wanna help my brain let go
You claim that you "get me" yet swamps are what you show me?

Toxic factories will never calm my mind
Calm my mind, calm my mind
Breezy wheat-y fields, maybe some cows in sight
Clouds in sight, birds in flight
Should be obvious what things'll calm my mind
Scenic drive, get it right
You might think these dead car piles are great
But those things won't help my brain

Been in a bad mood (hey!) this whole time
Because you've botched this (hey!) scenic drive
Wanted a calm mood (hey!), this ain't right
Screwed up a basic (hey!) scenic drive

Ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh, ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh
Didn't wanna see this junk, junk, junk, junk, junk
Ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh, ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh
Think it's best to wake me up when this bullcrap tour is done
So damn far from what I want

So damn far from what I want to calm my mind
Calm my mind, calm my mind
On some other day, I think that I could like
All these sights, they're alright (ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh)
But they're just not what I need to calm my mind
Scenic drive, get it right
Thought that would imply a sense of grace
Get your definitions straight (ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh)

Won't help my bad mood (hey!), will just climb (lame, lame)
Since you just botched this (hey!) scenic drive (oh-oh-oh)
Asked for a calm mood (ooh-ooh, ooh (hey!), ooh), did you try (lame, lame)?
Hell no, you screwed this (hey!) scenic drive

And to cap off the bad mood, Zedd and Katy Perry made this amazing song that was not nearly as big as it should've been! Seriously though, this song craps out yet Someone You Loved is a major smash hit? No sense, I tells ya, no sense.
