lyrics

Your ad here. You’re out here. A sad flag over seven acres
of RVs. Twilight through the dripping trees.
Eat at the next stop, pause at the next stop, check it again on your phone.
The gears are slipping. Hang a left up at Bob’s Adult Superstore.
Got the strangest feeling you’ve driven here before.
Can’t follow a road where it don’t want to go.

Forgotten, gone rotten, staling on yourself.
The fourth time you’ve heard this song. How can a map lead you so far wrong?
Billions and billions served, lights slipping curved down the windshield.
Get back on the interstate just past Bob’s Adult Superstore.
Got the strangest feeling you’ve driven by before.
If you wanna go home, well, that’s all you’ll ever see.

Look at you now, afraid to blink, the night spreading like an inkstain,
soft and complete. Every flash stops your heart. Oh, you’re coming apart at the seams.
A bed at a motel, a bed at a motel, the same bed at every motel in the world.
I’m sure it’s up ahead, past Bob’s Adult Superstore.
Got the strangest feeling you’ve driven by before.
If you are alone, well, that’s all you ever are.

And when you drive at night, well, do you ever think of me?
When the windshield’s lit up white, well, do you ever think of me?
