Four Wheels Away


I’ve seen mountains and oceans
Valleys and plains
Through the windows of a car
 
Slums and skyscrapers
From the seat of a traveling vessel
 
I’ve had conversations in the front seats
About the mysteries of the world
 
Passion in back seats
That would have shaken the earth
If shocks were not suspending me from the ground
 
Fill it with gas and point it in a direction
 
The car doesn’t care who you are
 
The car has the ability to make someone who lives inAmerica
Into an American
With a little time
And a change of scenery
