I was driving your car,
You were sleeping again.
Voices on the radio tried to keep me awake,
But they couldn't and I dreamt about
Swimming in some lake
Or the Bronx river
Where you skinny dipped with so much class
And the toxic sludge gave you super powers
And now your eyes glow greener than the early summer grass
I open mine and drive three more hours.

Pit stop in Baltimore lasted for three days
And we only thought it'd be two.
But I'm glad that we stayed there till Sunday, mm hmm
'Cause that's when my mobile dream came true.
And we walked down a mountain where we
Thought no one would see us
I was grumpy and you didn't have any shoes
And when we jumped in the reservoir
Naked as the days our mothers bore us
These twelve year old boys threw rocks at you.

And we are two freaks from some far off sideshow
We ditched the circus to find ourselves new homes
And if my lips don't counter the rebukes of our old masters
It's just 'cause they're locked on you.

Driving through Tennessee I held your head loose
Stopped at a gas station to piss and read the news
Big talk about car bombs and a war that'll never end
And the WEF is meeting in Jordan
And the Dead Sea is drying up a little bit each day
they say in ten years time it'll be gone
And the kids in the future won't believe me when I say
You used to be able to float on the water like the sun.

New Orleans we found a twenty in the gutter
So we went out and had our first tequilas of the summer
Talked about the burdens of being in love and being alive
I drove you back to your brother's, you were passed out by five.
I watched the way your eyes twitched in rhythm with your mouth
I wanted to write you a letter but I couldn't hold a pen.
This time tomorrow I'll be north, you'll still be south
I don't know when the hell I'm gonna see you again.
