The Message

Many miles
Occasional crashes
Maps, sunglasses
And molasses
Black coffee
No fear is distant
‘Cause cold hearts
Burn indifferent

Don’t ask me
If I’m free
I’ll be better when I can
Heart on sleeve
Fraying
To be a different man

Off to the border
To be reborn
Or be forgotten
In the dawn
Cause the radio has
Advice for listeners
Says a vicious heart’s
Good for business

Trapped in the wreck,
Of the old 85
You’ll be lucky to ever stay alive
‘Cause the TV with
Advice for viewers
Will never tell,
And will not lead us

Lights that shine,
trapped in subsistence
Waves of feeling,
Rising insistent
Cause the radio has,
Advice for listeners
Electrifies, even the decent

Don’t ask me
If I’m free
I’ll be better when I can
Heart on sleeve
Fraying
To be a different man
