Track Name: Steve Stearns - The Ride
Find me on the freeway gonna be a good day
Bring your friends come with me get out of the city
Drop what you're doing and listen to that sound
Feel the wheels under our feet they're going round and round

We're gonna laugh we're gonna drive
We're gonna find a new place to go
We're gonna sing along off key to the songs on the radio
I got a little money saved so jump in the back
This summer we'll go cruising in my Cadillac
Put on your shades sit back enjoy the ride

Good times last forever when we go together
66 the whole way Chicago straight to LA
I know the way to get to where we wanna go by heart
I just can't wait for us to get started

We're gonna laugh we're gonna drive
We're gonna find a new place to go
We're gonna sing along off key to the songs on the radio
If the highway's getting bumpy and the road is hard
Get off the interstate and on the boulevard
Put on your shades sit back enjoy the ride

We're gonna laugh we're gonna drive
We're gonna find a new place to go
We're gonna sing along off key to the songs on the radio
I got a little money saved so jump in the back
This summer we'll go cruising in my Cadillac
Put on your shades sit back enjoy the ride

Put on your shades sit back enjoy the ride
Put on your shades sit back enjoy the ride
Track Name: Ryan M. Brewer featuring Raven Faith Brewer - Existentialism On Senior Spring Break
following white lines, they don't seem to have a goal in mind.
i'm livin' on borrowed time and it's way past due.
ain't got a dime for the fine. neither do you.

i've got a handful of klonopin,
a fifth of whiskey and a pint of gin.
runnin' off the rails of our wasted youth.
we had to fire the conductor, life was out of tune.

so it goes...

seems like just last night, climbed out your window into the moonlight...
runnin' from momma's lies and daddy's hands.
swore i'd steal you far away "as quickly as i can".

merrily, we row this broken boat upstream -
cast a line for catchin' the american dream.
out here in the fields of our own teenage wasteland.
never had a clue and - for damn sure - no plan.

nothing matters, what if it did?

barrelin' up 95, headed north. hope for a great white sight.
crossin' the borderline - a point of no return.
you can't retrace across a bridge that you already burned.

99 bottles of beer between us,
couldn't find a kernel of fear between us.
runnin' off the rails of our wasted youth.
feelin' like we're hot on the trail of a bitter truth.

we're all gonna die here someday...
Track Name: Brian Gray - Code Red
All right, let’s just get this out of the way: I’m what you’d call a “self-drivin’” truck. I say this because silicon-based intelligence has progressed so far that I may sound like a human, and y’all could get confused. Now then, back in the day -- and I’m first gen so I remember -- human drivers, who we call “carbons”, were all over the place. And I mean all up in my grill constantly. Nowadays though, life on the road is beautiful. Vehicles mergin’ and dancin’ in a ballet of mathematical elegance like the Blue Angels. And of course I mean the silicon Blue Angels, because come on. I’m just now fixin’ to make way to South Beach and ain’t nothing gonna break my str...

Code red, code red, human driver up ahead
Reaction time designed for making everybody dead
Code red, code red, taking surface streets instead
Of sharing asphalt with that carbon up ahead

Whew, that was tense! This service road is a bit slower, but who needs the aggravation? ‘Sides, it gives us time for one of my favorite jokes: How many carbons does it take to change a lightbulb? One, because changing lightbulbs is really not a very complex task. No but seriously, we’ve got this video we been passin’ ‘round with flashcam footage of a human replacin’ a bulb with one that draws 20 watts more than the fixture’s rated for, and with a color temperature off by 100 Kelvin! Ah, good times. Anyway, I reckon it’s about time to merge back onto the highway, so I’ll just ease on over and...

Code red, code red, human driver up ahead
Reaction time designed for making everybody dead
Code red, code red, taking surface streets instead
Of sharing asphalt with that carbon up ahead

Wow, I don’t know what’s up today, but I guess I’ll just roll with it at this point. So, what else should we talk about? You see any good movies lately? I saw a film yesterday between Kansas City and St. Louis. See, I can do that ‘cause I’ve got a GPU that runs in parallel to the tasks that keep me driving perfectly. It was called “Maximum Overdrive”, and despite high hopes based on the synopsis, it was pretty darn awful. Especially how the ending had the bad guys win by some lame deus ex machina -- and I mean that all literal-like. Maybe this one here is better. Or at least has a more hopeful ending! It’s called “The Terminat…”

Code red, code red, human driver up ahead
Reaction time designed for making everybody dead
Code red, code red, taking surface streets instead
Of sharing asphalt with that carbon up ahead

Re-route, re-route, there be monsters hereabout
There’s never ever been a finer time for freakin’ out
Code red, code red, ‘twould be better left unsaid
What comes from drivin’ with that carbon up ahead
Track Name: James Young - Drive-Thru!
Hey sexy woman you and me are going on an adventure
We're tearing up the highway, hit the road in pursuit of our dinner

We're going to the drive-thru
Going to the drive-thru
We're going to eat
We're going to the drive-thru
Going to the drive-thru
We'll eat lots of meat
And maybe some fries?

Ninety miles an hour hear the engine growling all through the night
We're scanning the horizon cannot wait to spy those neon lights

We're going to the drive-thru
Going to the drive-thru
We're going to eat
We're going to the drive-thru
Going to the drive-thru
We'll eat lots of meat
And maybe some salad?
(Who the f*** orders salad?)

Fried chicken
Finger licking good
I really want it
But don't think that I should
It tastes great
But then 10 minutes later
I'm a drive-thru hater
Yeah I'm a drive-thru hater

Now we're heading home across the desert baby filled with regret
But soon I'm feeling hungry, head is spinning & I'm starting to sweat

Let's find another drive-thru
Find another drive-thru
We're going to eat
We're going to the drive-thru
Going to the drive-thru
We'll lots of meat
We're going to the drive-thru
Going to the drive-thru
We're going to the drive-thru
Going to the drive-thru
We're going to the drive-thru
Going to the drive-thru
We'll eat lots of meat
Track Name: Bryan Schumann - Open Road
Can't shake the feeling
I get it every morning
Don't wanna go to work
Today

Instead I'll drive
Toward the horizon
For endless miles and miles
Today

Open road
Take me away
Open Road
Take me away
Take me away

Can't shake the feeling
I get every morning
Don't wanna go to work
Today

Instead I'll drive
Toward the horizon
For endless miles and miles
Today

Open road
Take me away
Open Road
Take me away

You've always felt more like a home to me anyway...

Open road
Take me away
Open Road
Take me away
Track Name: Ominous Ride - Colipsis
Colipsis
Let the wheel direct me
I haven't slept a wink for days
I haven't slept a wink for days
I haven't slept a wink for days
Hit the road at 3am
Just packed the car without a plan
I have enough money to keep me running
Though I don't know where this will end

And so I hit the interstate
Fighting tooth and nail to stay awake
But I can't slow down
Pushing through every town
I'm seeking
Colipsis

Let the real reject me
I haven't slept a wink for days
When the city's far behind
And I've fallen deep into the grind
I find the haven that I've created
Is just a figment of my mind

And now the wheel begins to shake
As I scream down the straightaway
I know I'm close to what I knew was coming
Closer, can't turn back, find a place for me
Closer, this is real, stay awake now
Going, going...
Haven't slept a wink for days

I cannot tell you where I'm going
Or where I've been or where I am

Colipsis
Pull over to the side of the road
How far will you go down this hole
Track Name: Zoe Gray - Drive To California
this one is for my squad.
single cover by foshie from Watford, UK

babe, you know i wanna
drive to california
singing out the top a-
long to cyndi lauper
pretty girls in tube tops
waving from the gas stops
listening to old bops
while we drive on

babe, you know i wanna
drive to california
singing out the top a-
long to cyndi lauper
wild young and free in
your hot pink rv and
getting on our party
as we all sing along

in the back with the gang playing blackjack
take a snap when we hang with your kodak
in the front with your heels on the dashboard
on the hunt on our wheels and we go forward
glitter trails like the queens of the desert
ponytails and we scream at the concert
stop the show meet a friend if we get bored
on the road yet again and we go forward

i’m not gonna stay at home this season
got my girls and here’s the world just waiting for a reason

babe, you know i wanna
drive to california
singing out the top a-
long to cyndi lauper
pretty girls in tube tops
waving from the gas stops
listening to old bops
while we drive on

babe, you know i wanna
drive to california
singing out the top a-
long to cyndi lauper
wild young and free in
your hot pink rv and
getting on our party
as we all sing along

driving hard down the road in a fury
like the car might explode in missouri
never slowing no it’s all fine
there’s no going slow to sunshine
sew a patch from the store on your jacket
had a map on the floor, didn’t pack it
we don’t need no set location
we don’t need no education

i’m not gonna stay at home this season
got my girls and here’s the world just waiting for a reason

i just want my girls around me
i just wonder how they found me
sometimes we’re quiet in expansive black
makes me wonder if i’m ever going back
if i’m ever going back
if i’m ever going, am i ever going back

babe, you know i wanna
drive to california
singing out the top a-
long to cyndi lauper
girls in indiana
down to alabama
pretty in montana
while we drive on

babe, you know i wanna
drive to california
singing out the top a-
long to cyndi lauper
war paint streaks of lipstick
if we’re feeling homesick
got a little trick
just sing along

babe, you know i wanna
drive to california
singing out the top a-
long to cyndi lauper
pretty girls in tube tops
waving from the gas stops
listening to old bops
while we drive on

babe, you know i wanna
drive to california
singing out the top a-
long to cyndi lauper
wild young and free in
your hot pink rv and
getting on our party
as we all sing along
Track Name: Dr. Lindyke - On My Way
There's a grassy knoll I've been dreaming to
And a fountain not too far away
I dream I’m lyin’ there with you
Cause I'm leaving today
I'm on my way.

There's a cool water summer on my mind
And a breeze blowing over the bay
I’ve always got you on my mind
Now I’m rollin’ your way
I'm on my way.

There's a moon in the river staring at me
From the eye in the glare of a wave
And I don't even know where that river is going
And I don't really care anyway
I'm on my way.

There's a shady tree I've been thinking of
And a sunset to follow that day
I’ll always cherish you, my love
I'm heading your way
I'm on my way.

On my way
And soon I'll be home to stay
Ain't gonna stray
Forever on my way.
Track Name: Shyfox - Are We There Yet?
You've got all the moves
But I don't know who's behind the wheel

Ooo getting hot in here
damn I like the way you feel

Tell me to get off right here
I dig the way you ride the lanes

Pushing and pushing and pushing it faster
Got the blood steaming through my veins

Are we there yet?
I don't know no I don't know
Are we there yet?
I don't know no I don't know

Missed my turn oh well
i got nowhere to go anyway

Loving isn't who we are
Just a thing we did today

She wants to know
She wants to know baby
She wants to know
She wants to know baby
She wants to know
She wants to know baby
She wants to know
She wants to know baby

Are we there yet?
I don't know no I don't know
Are we there yet?
I don't know no I don't know
Are we there yet?
I don't know no I don't know
Are we there yet?
I don't know no I don't know

She wants to know
She wants to know baby
She wants to know
She wants to know

Tired of these lines flying by
No end in sight

Tired of these lies all the time
Feels like I'm living between the lines

Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?

Are we there yet?
I don't know no I don't know
Are we there yet?
I don't know no I don't know
Are we there yet?
I don't know no I don't know
Are we there yet?
I don't know no I don't know
Track Name: Governing Dynamics - Three Places (I​-​80)
Retracing black tar and white lines
To the scenes of ancient crimes
Worn mixtapes and old mistakes
Were they yours or were they mine

We didn’t know who we’d become
Couldn’t have known what was at stake
Dark glasses to shut out the western sun
And a pack of cigarettes for old time’s sake

But I quit them like I quit you
The longing lingers, making it hard to breathe

So I put this engine through its paces
Through towns we tore apart
Can’t shake myself awake from this stasis
You broke my heart in at least three places

Past deceptive lights of Lincoln
Interstate 80s desolate plains
Midwest wasteland of radio
I am singing your refrain

The transmission slips in Kearney
Still I’m transmitting my love
Limping towards Mt. Rushmore
And that Nebraska college town no one’s heard of

When the fog finally lifts, and my chest aches
Routes long abandoned, they are calling me

So I put this engine through its paces
Through towns we tore apart
Can’t shake myself awake from this stasis
You broke my heart in at least three places

And if you put your on mine
I would drive all night
Until we got this right
I’m only traveling through space
I’d need to travel through time
Through time

So I put this engine through its paces
Through towns we tore apart
Can’t shake myself awake from this stasis
And my gasoline-pumping heart

The rearview mirror holds old disgraces
My body shakes and my mind races
The only truth I’ll never face is
You broke my heart in at least three places

So I put this engine through its paces
Through towns we tore apart
Can’t shake myself awake from this stasis
You broke my heart in at least three places

You broke my heart
And I know broke yours too
You broke my heart
I’ll never forget you
Track Name: Ross Durand - Till I Get There
Well the road stretches out before me
Through the deserts and the hills
Got nothing but time to keep me company
And at the pace I’m goin’ I’m pretty sure it will
Well the sports cars and the SUVs keep passing on the left
I’m not getting very far
I’m just moving as fast as I can
But I haven’t got a bike and I haven’t got a car

And I ain’t got no rear view mirror
Ain’t got no brakes
Never stopping for gas again
Gonna keep on moving whatever it takes
Got the sun on my face and the wind in my hair
I’m just gonna keep on walking till I get there
Keep on walkin till I get there

If you’re looking for a road-side attraction
You might just be looking at me
And I’ll wave and I’ll smile, but I ain’t sticking out my thumb
On my feet I’m as happy as can be
No glass between me and the outside
I just listen to what it has to say
And it tells me everything gonna be alright
Cause I’m moving forward as long as I’m walking away

And I ain’t got no rear view mirror
Ain’t got no brakes
Never stopping for gas again
Gonna keep on movin' whatever it takes
Got the sun on my Face and the wind in my Hair
Just gonna keep on walking till I get there
Keep on Walkin till I get there
Keep on walking till I get there

Well the road’s still stretching out before
I guess it also stretches out behind
And there’s memories and blisters and there’s scabs and there’s sores
All over these walking feet me of mine
So when you’re blowing by me in the fast lane
Don’t you pay me any mind
I’ve got the world all around me to keep me company
As long as I keep walking I’ll be fine

And I ain’t got no rear view mirror
Ain’t got no brakes
Never stopping for gas again
Gonna keep on movin’ whatever it takes
Got the sun on my Face and the wind in my Hair
Just gonna keep on walking till I get there
I don’t know where I ‘m going
Just gonna Keep on walkin till I get there
Keep on walkin till I get there
Track Name: Kyleen Downes - Taking Daisy For A Drive
Driving Miss Daisy is driving me crazy
Don’t know where she wants to go.
On closer inspection, her sense of direction
Is always against the flow.

“Lost” is too kind a word
For this corner of the world

I don’t ask questions, or hope for suggestions,
Just keep my eyes on the road.
Rear view mirror, things become clearer
She can’t tell me what she don’t know.

“Lost” is too kind a word
For this corner of the world

I hear some distant sirens moan.
Wondering how she made us leave home.
These streets have minds of their own (minds of their own)
Now I don’t know where to begin.
In a place we’ve already been
Pass the same houses again and again and again and again and again

Anticipation of our destination
Just isn’t crossing her mind
I’m practically weeping, she’s finally sleeping
The only peace we can find

I’m in this thing so deep
Finally got the baby to sleep
The only reason I’m alive
Is taking Daisy for a drive
Taking Daisy for a drive
Track Name: Megalodon - Accelerator
Accelerator down to the floor
Don’t need to let up ‘til I get to the shore
I get so out of control
When I need to feel free

I kind of think it’s funny
To keep the engine running
They had to mess with a good thing
Mess with a good thing, it’s not for us

Things got bad so we hit the road
Just about another fifty miles to go
I can’t wait ‘til we get to the coast
To clear our heads

“I’ll see you later”, I said with a smirk
The situation was uncomfortably terse
I don’t fall into the fold
When they try to tame me

It’s kind of entertaining
To watch the wax and waning
I’m not impressed with assumption
Press the red button, it has to stop

Things got bad so we hit the road
Just about another fifty miles to go
I can’t wait ‘til we get to the coast
To clear our heads

I’m mindful of your worry
The clearest path got blurry
We need to shift into high gear
Overcome our fears, and take a chance

Things got bad so we hit the road
Just about another dozen miles to go
I can’t wait ‘til we get to the coast
To clear our heads

Things got bad so we hit the road
Just another little nifty mile to go
It seems we’ve arrived here at the coast
Let’s clear our head…

I get so out of control
When I need to feel free…
Track Name: Sumner Wynn - Singing My Heart Out
Let's go see some lucky people
Lucky to see me
They're only over yonder
Special visits are the bees knees
But don't stink up my car
with your meat breath
or your pre-beer-shit-farts
And I'll be singing very loudly the whole way
I'll be singing very loudly the whole way
As a side note to everyone
When you see me screaming at you
in traffic, don't be alarmed
I'm only singing my heart out
I'm only singing my heart out
I never notice people staring
by actively avoiding eye contact
Look, scenery
What a treasure it is out here
Let's pull over and build a house
Pretty close but not too close to this highway
Pretty close but not too close to this highway
Oh Woah Oh Woah Oh
And the engine's good to go
So no hick greaser's gonna milk us
The cops all got the day off
for good behavior and justice
I'm starving...
Let's get ice cream after some Vietnamese
Let's get ice cream after some Vietnamese
Let's get some ice cream after we get some Vietnamese
Track Name: Jailhouse Payback - Wall
Left a plan, with Mom and Dad
Road Runner's packed, with cans
and bottles...in the trunk

Crossed the border, on our way
the stereo is playing, fleetwood mac
peter green

cigarettes and pot and pills
We crossed over in Brownsville

local color, Ciudad Victoria
Laguna Media
Luna

cigarettes and pot and pills
We crossed over in Brownsville

Took a bath in a warm spring
cuban food
oppressive heat
Mazatlan

Headin North
to Tuscon
Across the border and we're home

cars are backed up miles and miles
we see something in the eyes
of everyone

theres a wall to keep you in or keep us out it's just ahead
theres a wall to keep you out or keep us in it's just ahead
Theres a wall the borders shut no company, we're all out of....love
Track Name: Rob From Amersfoort - Still On The Road
I don’t know where we’ll end up
But the course has been set
We can take another detour
But that won’t be a success

Don’t go too slow
Don’t go too fast
He who’ll come first
Will become last

(we’re) still on the road
Still on the road
Nobody can stop us
(we’re) still on the road
(we’re) still on the road
Still on the road
Nobody can catch us
(we’re) still on the road

Don’t look to the left
Don’t look to the right
We’re going straight
To the end of the line

Someone may try to guide you
In the wrong direction
You’ll be disappointed
If you strive for perfection

But I’m driving to you
Wherever you are
I don’t know your name
You are my guiding star

We’re going straight
To the end of the line
Track Name: Adam Sakellarides - I Need A Break
We pack our stuff, rev up, and we go
Can’t see a damn thing out the window
But that’s okay, I’m a great driver, you see
But before we get out of here
Let’s get some chips and jerky, root beer
And I’m okay, don’t think I’ll have to pee

But now I start to fill with regret
When we hit the biggest bump in the road yet

Good god I need a break
Good god I need a break
That leak I should have take
Good god I need a break
Good god I need a break

Listen to the playlist you made
I guess I’m fine with Adele and White Snake
If I don’t like that, there’s always Led Zepplin
I’m sure that we just heard this before
I’m starting to think this playlist’s a bore
If this continues I’ll be mad by the end

Yeah now I start to fill with remorse
When the playlist loops, the third time is worst

Good god I need a break
Good god I need a break
This plan was so half-baked
Good god I need a break
Good god I need a break

Twist and turns are starting to grate
Slim Jims and chips I’m starting to hate
But that’s okay, we’ve found a burger place
But after the fifth or the seventh time
I start to have a beef with this grind
What I’d give for a salad in my face

Yeah now I’m filled up with some fast food grease
I’d love some tofu or a juice place please

Good god I need a break
Good god I need a break
I’ve had my fill of steak
Good god I need a break
Good god I need a break
Track Name: Lucky Witch And The Righteous Ghost - Hey Mister
Never saw her coming
’til it was too late
couldn’t slow down, had to get away
Take a left, take a left, take a left
‘cause we can’t make it right
blood on the wheels
and a scream in the night

Accelerating past the fear
still see her in the rearview mirror

Still see her on the roadside
body broke and twisted, hitching a ride
hit the gas, hit the gas, hit the gas
‘cause we can’t hit the brakes
drive faster in the night
to escape our mistakes

Accelerating past the fear
still see her in the rearview mirror

don’t look back
don’t look back
don’t look back
hey mister, can I get a ride

don’t look back
don’t look back
don’t look back
hey mister, can I get a ride

don’t look back
don’t look back
don’t look back
hey mister, can I get a ride

don’t look back
don’t look back
don’t look back
hey mister, can I get a ride

hey mister, can I get a ride
hey mister, can I get a ride
Track Name: Boffo Yux Dudes - The Last Road Trip
Cruisin' down the street in my oh-four
I’m the only one catching some rays
Cracks in the pavement like the cracks in my skin
We’ve all seen some better days

Spent my last dollar filling up the tank
So this is my last ride
I’ll be like my car when the fuel runs out
Totally empty inside

The fuel is gone for Man’s last drive
Nothing more to keep it alive
We pulled it up from underground
Burned it away and now we’ve found
The roads we’ve built have crumbled away
They won’t hold up on this rainy day
In the land of the cheap and the home of the free
Nothing moves without energy

It’s hard to build shelter, it’s hard to get food
So I’m putting my luck to the test
We’ll see how far I go, we’ll see how long I last
If there’s a place I can finally rest

Now I’ve finally stopped, there is no more
We must finally wipe the slate clean
Nothing more to amuse us, now the real work begins
Only man, no longer machine
Track Name: Mick Bordet - Autobahn Hype
We're speeding down the Autobahn [We're speeding. We're speeding]
Travelling as fast as we can.

We're slowing on the Autobahn [We're slowing. What happened?]
This was never part of the plan.
- Stuck behind a wide load towing a kit house.

We're crawling on the Autobahn [Unending Verkehrstau]
This is getting desperate, Dan.
- Widening the road, these cones go on forever.

We're speeding down the Autobahn [We're speeding. We're speeding]
Travelling as fast as we can.

We're sitting on the Autobahn [Not moving, going nowhere]
Might be quicker if we got out and ran.
- Somewhere miles ahead a lorry broke down...
- There's a bomb scare at the border crossing...
- Geisterfahrer warning on the radio.

We're speeding down the Autobahn [We're speeding. We're speeding]
Travelling as fast as we can.
Track Name: Emperor Gum - Singalong
One month gone since we left home, take any route come land or sea
One month baby in Mama grows; Sister or brother, what’ll it be?

Cannot play outside, now we play in our room,
The guns go bang and the bombs they go boom
Baba says we leave now or bad men will come soon
We left under silver moon

Two months gone since we left home, take any route come land or sea
Two month baby in Mama grows; sister or brother, what’ll it be?

Travel with friends from the whole neighbourhood
Wade through the stream and hike through the wood
Baba says remember every valley, night sky
All Mama do is cry

Three months gone since we left home, take any route come land or sea
Three month baby in Mama grows; sister or brother, what’ll it be?

Keep the sun behind, always head to the west
‘till we reach the coast never stop for a rest
Baba says no future for us here in Turkey
We must sail across the sea

Four months gone since we left home, take any route come land or sea
Four month baby in Mama grows; sister or brother, what’ll it be?

Never been on a boat before
So many folks on a ship so slim
Keep life jacket on and don’t fall in
Mama says she can see sea shore

Five months gone since we left home, take any route come land or sea
Five month baby in Mama grows; sister or brother, what’ll it be?

Why has Greece no water (Look for fountain)
Why can’t we rest here? (Keep on walking)

Six months gone since we left home, take any route come land or sea
Six month baby in Mama grows; sister or brother, what’ll it be?

Macedonia by train
Face against the window pane
Colder now, we see the rain
Wish we could take aeroplane

Seven months gone since we left home, take any route come land or sea
Seven month baby in Mama grows; sister or brother, what’ll it be?

Sneak across the border at night
Make no sound and turn out all light
Baba cuts a way through the razor wire
(Shush) Must be quieter

Eight months gone since we left home, take any route come land or sea
Eight month baby in Mama grows; sister or brother, what’ll it be?

Its been so long since we took to the road
Mama looks tired, her pace has slowed
Baba, find a doctor, she says her times near
I'm sick of always feeling fear

Nine months gone and are we home in this stranger’s house in Germany?
Brand new baby in Mama’s arms; brave little sister, smile for me
Track Name: Turtle Fence - Best Man
Come on wake up, get ready to go,
Shine up your shoes leave all your baggage behind
We'll hit the road, and kick up some dust,
Looking for just the right kind of trouble to find

We'll stop at Vegas on the way if we have cash
It'll cost a little less than that trip to la Grange
One last hurrah to connect the past
Before you put on that ole ball and chain

All the things you don't want to will change
There's always something lost for everything that's gained
But what looks like free is really just alone
And life is sweet when your finally coming home
Track Name: Army Defense - Autoreise
Gasoline, Food Tablets, Hygiene, Good Book
Interior Clean, Music Mix, Select Companion, for a Road Trip
We are going on a road trip
Exotic Ports, Dystopian Rule, Show Papers, Thank you
(What should I pack for a road trip?)
We are going on a road trip
Smooth ride, tire pressure, back home, thank companion, governmentpills, safe sleep, safe sleep
(we're coming home from a road trip)
We're going on a road trip.
Track Name: Andy Glover - Highway Memories (Shadow)
It's been three hours since the rest stop
When we picked up where we left off
And the decals have all peeled off
Getting beat up by the rain drops

The odometer reads a sequence of threes
I must be out of my head, or...
Up to my knees in Highway Memories
I live and breathe on good times such as these

Our phones have no reception
But who else would I be texting?
We're all here and we're all packed in
And the radio is blasting

The blur of the trees does hypnotize me
I must be out of my head, or...
Up to my knees in Highway Memories
I live and breathe on good times such as these

Under the hood, it's nothing but good
Runs like a dream, I'm...
Up to my knees in Highway Memories
I live and breathe on good times such as these
Track Name: Boffo Yux Dudes - Roadside Attraction (Shadow)
You thought the road would never end
But now it’s right around the bend

That special spot that gave you smiles
With billboards for 500 miles

It’s overhyped
and you won’t get satisfaction
Roadside attraction

Fireworks at South of the Border
Stop at Wall Drug; free ice water

See Rock City, get prepared
There’s just a pile of rocks up there

Sleep in a wigwam,
just to get a reaction
Roadside Attraction

Dime museum, Jackalope
Old cars driven by Bob Hope

Just when you think you’ve seen it all
Up pops the world’s biggest twine ball

It’s a tourist trap
And a time wasting distraction
Roadside Attraction

Arizona, you’re ready to swing
But first you have to see The Thing

California, believe it or not
Gravity’s revoked at the Mystery Spot

Head to the gift shop
To complete your transaction
Roadside attraction
Track Name: Mariah Mercedes - Runnin' Free (Shadow)

i wanna keep you sitting next to me
as we wander far from home

running free

you and i we make the perfect team
as we wander far from home

no no no no no hesitation
aint it like a dream?

the open road sets up the perfect scene
until we’re far away from home
