from my perch on the roof
all cars seem aloof
to some shared, primal flow
a direction that they just know
beyond love, beyond thought
is a highway where you're taught
to drive every night
and keep driving until there's light
is it the signs that guide you back?
the neon announcements for the knowledge you lack?
the exits in green, mile markers in blue
I'd give all my money just to know what to do
I pay all my tolls in cash
cash is king, appease the man
ride the bridge, look around
but not too much, it's a long way down
when I get to your street
come outside and we'll meet
I might stay in the car
it's so cold where you are
how did you find your way back?
was it the neon letters against a digital black?
they light up the green, they light up the blue
and i'd give all of my talents just to be that way too
