about

A post-apocalyptic bit about when the gas runs out, literally the ultimate road trip.

lyrics

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
