lyrics

We go from hidden driveways
to shadow traffic
blacktop leading to a backdrop,
backlit

A better commute
in radio times when
the streets have fleas
between where the lines end

What am I, your chauffeur?
What am I, the livery?
You belittle me,
'til it cuts down to the middle of me.

We move in atlas van lines
get necklace tan lines
"one time only"
special offers

Helvetica suits
medical times when
the manes will lead to a sneeze
in the lion's den

Her bridges, crumbling
Her plumbing is rusting
We're driving from something
to nothing

What am I, your chauffeur?
What am I, the livery?
You belittle me,
'til it cuts down to the middle of me.
