lyrics

The road can be a symbol, but right now we're fucking lost. The signs that once directed us don't make sense anymore. Everyone is shouting, the world is streaming by. It's hard to find a needle that will stay true inside. That night we saw a band in the basement of a house. The singer said that knowledge is a waste unless you count every star above your. Yeah, I'll count until I'm dead. I'll be counting all my life.

Driving down the coastline in the night, watching all the lights go by.
Thinking that I'd rather be awake than asleep in someone else's dream.

Jason needs the exit number and no one has a clue. The rattle of the engine passing upwards through my shoe. Will we ever get back home? Do you want to get back home, he says to me. We are counting on the turnpike, banking on the sun, because no night lasts for ever, no night lasts for good. I can hear the ocean roar in the shell of my own ear. It says, sometimes even oceans disappear.

Driving down the coastline in the night, watching all the lights go by.
Thinking that I'd rather be awake than asleep in someone else's dream.
