Lyrics

I dream of what I think about before bed
And I had a lazy Sunday marathon of Ken Burns on the West
So I had a dream we escaped all oppression
And we went somewhere, somewhere where no one could touch us
And there we were
Modest possessions packed up in our wagon
All to leave this behind for a better, freer life
And it's a dangerous world out there
We could fail and we could die
But we're itching for adventure, for a change and it's our time

Why do we spend our days lazing around?
Talking a big talk and playing games
We don't do what we want because we're too afraid
And I know, I know, I know we could do better
There's nothing we can't do if we stick together
Because once, we were pioneers
We were pioneers
Yeah, we were pioneers

I dream of what I think about before bed
And I played Oregon Trail last night until my eyes were red
Do you remember when we played it in school as kids?
Do you remember the dreams that we dreamed when we played it?
Back in our new home
More than a century and two thousand miles away
We plotted over drinks with the exciting friends we made
We've got a blank canvas here, this town is the edge of the earth
And we can make it anything we want it to be, it's our turn

Why do we spend our days lazing around?
Talking a big talk and playing games
We don't do what we want because we're too afraid
And I know, I know, I know we could do better
There's nothing we can't do if we stick together
Because once, we were pioneers
We were pioneers
Yeah, we were pioneers

I had a dream that you and I were pioneers
I woke up wondering what had happened that we wound up here
We were the kids with the big dreams and the bright minds
And now we're overgrown kids cramping our parents' styles

And it doesn't seem it's going to work out how we wanted
You've got a food baby, I'm still in my pajamas
But the way I see it, life's a game
Where you maximize its length,
maximize the pleasure and minimize the pain
And you and I, we're people who were not supposed to lose
And every day is a potential new beginning
Every day is a potential new beginning
Every day is a potential new beginning
Every day is a potential new beginning

We'll leave everything behind, build a new life in a new place
If only in our minds
Because once, we were pioneers
We were pioneers
Yeah, we were pioneers
