I want to be the first one
to see them all. Cities shine
like stars against stretches of
pavement and gas is still cheaper
than rent. A full tank gives
me such wanderlust, my Civic
is a rocket ship, I'm six again
but with bigger dreams.
Beam me up, I've got places to
be. Interstates make constellations
and I belong in space.
