This is a song I wrote about a train trip I took as a kid with my grandmother "just for the heck of it." We just went to the station and got on to wherever it was going (ended up being Naperville). Over the years it's taken on periodic symbolism for me. The town of Naperville had literally nothing to show then but a drugstore with an ice cream counter and soda fountain...now it's this really popular, trendy, nouveau-riche hotspot.

I hope you enjoy the song itself. Dusted this one off from a 15-year-old tape and soaped it. Please no comments on production...lol.
