"Along for the Ride" as written by Kori Gardner Hammel and Jason Edward Hammel....
The boxes piled high. no order, no mind. I'll save the work for you,
'cause I'll be busy sorting through the merrier designs I make inside.
And on the hollowest pages, the pen dissolves without the bait.
Don't try to be a model. don't want to waste more space.
Oh, look at our models. oh, the blasted space.
Tune in me tonight. turn down all the lights.
I'm just along for the ride. the moving pictures we see.
The colored cities or the sea. go and taste them one by one.
Until that time, you can't be done.
Know your station you just can't direct.
Let's plant a white one just for you.
And chart the growth until the move.
Don't try to be a model.
Don't want to waste more space.
Oh, look at our models. oh, the blasted space. tune in me tonight.
Turn down all the lights. I'm just along for the ride.

    General CommentI can listen to this song over and over again and never get bored with it.

    On that note, I think the song could mean several things. The first time I listened to it, I thought that it was comparing a move to a change in a relationship. Then, the more I listen to it (and read the lyrics), the more I'm confused about its meaning.
