"Dash After Dash" as written by and Kimberly Ann Schifino Matthew Wesley Johnson....
On a thursday afternoon
I can see the sun and moon
Shadows strobe at 55
Dash after dash
Dash after line

Telephone poles keep the time
A rhythmic metronome of kinds
It's the same beat as this song
And might just last a lifetime long
Where hours can come and go
Where hours can come and go
On end
On

I saw the light
Since dancing in the night
We played boxes like drums
In the car

On a thursday afternoon
When the wind begins to swoon
A sea of birds
Like waves in flight
Dash after dash
'Til out of sight

And I saw the white
Since dancing in the night
We played boxes like drums
In the car

We drove 7 thousand
Months afar
We played boxes like drums
In the car

On a thursday afternoon
I can see the sun and moon
Shadows strobe at 55
Dash after dash
Dash after line

On a thursday afternoon (3xs)
Dash after dash
Dash after line

I saw the white
Since dancing in the night
We played boxes like drums
In the car

    My InterpretationSo he's clearly driving somewhere, to White Sands Desert in New Mexico most likely, on a Thursday. The dash after dash, is the lines in the road as he watches them zip past the car. Shadows strobe at 55, is him travelling 55 mph, and the shadows of various things on the side of the road (trees, phone poles, w/e) create a strobe effect as you zoom past.
