Cruising down I-95
Heading for some far-off destination
That is not yet known
Even to driver
Clutching the wheel like a life-saver
A pack of CDs in the passenger seat
Because the AM is dead and the FM is dying

Sun-soaked strips
And rain-drenched ways
Lead on to coastal roads
And winding dirt paths
The gas tank may be close to empty
But driver is not

Time is the farthest thing away
And driver is not getting any closer
To his unknown destination
But there is no map
Only an internal compass
That is probably busted

I like it, it really catches the essence of driving. Check my work out sometime?
