In morning traffic
In the purple sunrise
In $40,000 of aluminum
You can be anything you want
Anything at all
In evening traffic
In the orange sunset
In $40,000 of aluminum
You can almost feel at home
Sitting under the overpass and waiting
For all your dreams to come
Floating back
Floating back
Floating back

    General CommentThe meaning to this song, at least to me, couldn't be more obvious.

    It's about the mind numbingness of sitting in the middle of traffic, wondering where things are going.

    In situations like this, it's easy to dream of being somewhere else, and that's what Chris is doing.

    He's dreaming of being somewhere else, something else, someone else, anything else.
