lyrics

I wake before the dawn
In the stagnant air of some motel
And over continental breakfast
I briefly come aware
Of some nameless dread
Hanging wispy in the morning air

I am just the driver
That is all I know

Down Main to Houston Street
And then slowly turning onto Elm
Entering the Plaza
Into the thrumming crowd
Fearless and genteel
Waving to the fervent and the proud

I am just the driver
That is all I do

A hollow sound
Breaks the air
Time just spirals down
Driving screaming circles out of here
I see his holy head
Ever blooming rosy in the mirror

As long as I keep driving
None of this is real
As long as I keep driving
None of this is real
