(I Want to Live on An) Abstract Plain

This song is by Frank Black and appears on the album Teenager of the Year (1994).

This song has been covered by The Distillers under the title "Abstract Plain".
I've had it with this town
I never saw those shifting skies
I never saw the ground
Or the sunset rise

I want to live on an abstract plain
I'm building a frame
A place to put my ten-yard stare
Thinking of that paint
Painted in plain air
I want to live on an abstract plain

I need a new address
I want some new terrain
Is it North or South?
I want to live on an abstract plain

I could sit on the roof
On top of that abstract house
See my abstract view
An abstract mouse
I want to live on an abstract plain

I need a new address
Tell me I'm not insane
Is it up or down?
I want to live on an abstract plain
