lyrics

Forget that last confession it was long and insincere
I know you're tired of driving but there's miles to go my dear
Miles to go, miles to go
When we hit that open road and we open up a beer

The wind was in the rushes and I thought I saw a snake
And I thought I heard you whisper musta been a big mistake
Big mistake, a big mistake
When you see something crawling and you slam down on the brakes

I thought I saw a mallard or it might have been a drake
Musta been some kind of duck though it was swimming on a lake
On a lake, on a lake
It was kicking little feet and there were minnows in the wake

Should I open up the window I'd like to smoke a cigarette
Haven't touched the things in years but I'm scrambling to forget
Oh I scramble and I ramble
When I wager on a gamble and I always lose my bets

This car is like a cavern I can't see my own hand
And I don't know where we're going, this just wasn't like I planned
Like I planned like I planned
When you're speeding down the highway like a storm across the land

We've been in this car together for about a couple days
And we lost all our direction it's like wandering through a maze
Like a maze like a maze
When you're looking out the window and a bird returns your gaze

The car flew to the the heavens and its nose pushed through a cloud
They leaned into each other and they kissed without a sound
Without a sound any sound
And when you're looking for them everywhere they'll be high above the ground
