lyrics

Counting Roadkill.

We set off with anticipation on a road trip all across the nation
I've never seen so many petrol stations
I saw more of them than Appalachians
You were driving along with your hands on your lap
The roads were so long you could have taken a nap
And woken up in a town that looked like the last
With an adult superstore and a place to get gas
A billboard ahead read 'Jesus saves'
And another one said 'save more at Walmart'
We were playing a game, you had to count roadkill
You got an extra point if you saw a bald eagle
But several hours went by and nothing had come
And we were still sitting there listening to Neil Young
And all I could think about was while I'm gone
How many emails will she send? But I checked, there were none
Just an offer on a brand of razor blades and some spam that said 'hey baby, do you wanna get laid?

There's a light on the horizon coming our way
It's a broken down lorry on the motorway
And the bright neon shape of a fast food chain
I just want to escape the mundane

We went from state to state for stories to tell
And ate microwave meals in smokey motels
Trying to get inspiration from CNN watching white politicians talking to white men
That's when we took the car off the beaten track, got lost in a forest and couldn't find our way back
We found a lake by mistake and we jumped right in
We had fish by our feet and goosebumps on our skin

There's a light on the horizon coming our way
It's a broken down lorry on the motorway
And the bright neon shape of a fast food chain
I just want to escape the mundane
