after driving many hours
reflective dots on the road looked like candies
stuck in rows to wax paper
and i ate a few to find
they'd been dipped in somebody's acid
and i couldn't uncross the things my mind said it saw with my eyes
and i couldn't say a word though i feared for our lives
what a cruel trick to play, what a cruel thing to do to a stranger

once the sun came up
and i saw what was what
the heavy horizon lay before me it flattened out my eyes
no pitch black cut by spotlight to show me blurry lines
in sunlight i marvelled
i could have taken both our lives
what a cruel trick to play, what a cruel thing to do to a stranger
what a cruel trick to play, what a cruel thing to do to a traveller
