Distant Drive to Nowhere (original)

We slowly drive from happiness to guilt
Enjoy the casual stops along the way
To see some monument that someone built
Or watch the purple sunset turn to gray
The road is so much quieter at night
The wheels are so much softer in the dark
Don’t try to read the map without a light
Or analyze for miles my last remark
The song begins to crackle and to fade
The farther from the signal we proceed
The tune begins to sound like its afraid
Of interfering with some silent need
But silence is a humming static hiss
That never thought its words would come to this
