Brief Description

This is a song I wrote about the restaurant everyone knows about, but are afraid to admit they like because they like to think fast food is beneath them.  They might pretend they don't know much about McDonald's, but they're lying because everyone grows up knowing what they're all about at least due to their advertising. To me it's comforting to know they're all pretty much the same - you know what to expect.  Also, they're everywhere so it's easy to find one nearby.  It was once a symbol of growth when a small town gets one - of moving up a notch in civilization, like Starbucks is now.  When on a long road trip in a car on an expressway in the sticks, seeing the golden arches in the distance can be like finding an oasis in a desert.
