When it comes to
The end of the evening
Southeast, southwest
So far to ride or bike or drive or walk ten blocks to catch the train
All these neighborhoods feel the same

So poor, one more
For the morning daylight
Won't help my plight
To ride or bike or drive or walk ten blocks to catch the train
The distance is still the same

Bonneville Breaks
Drowning Downtown
We've got one chance to take, to take
The bridge to your place is burning and burning
Over and over
Those poor selfish automobiles

The street lights change
As quick as your mind
We'll hop the blue line
Or ride or bike or drive or walk ten blocks to catch the train
We always pass on the passing lane

Bonneville Breaks
Drowning Downtown
We've got one chance to take, to take
The bridge to your place is burning and burning
Over and over
Those poor selfish automobiles

Bonneville Breaks
Drowning Downtown
We've got one chance to take, to take
The bridge to your place is burning and burning
Bonneville Breaks
Drowning Downtown
We've got one chance to take, to take
The bridge to your place is burning and burning
Over and over
Those poor selfish automobiles

    General CommentHe's trying to get somewhere by sundown, probably to see a girlfriend or friend, but his transportation situation sucks.

    I can totally relate to that "poor selfish automobiles" line. Before owning a car I had to take the bus everywhere, and it was always frustrating when I'd miss a bus and have to wait longer, and I would just wish I could hitch a ride up the street in one of the cars... it's not like it would be out of their way or anything.
