Parked in the Passing Lane

photo by jack grace

in a world of many no one makes a sound
as I’m driving off to play another town
my quiet cruise it hums and rhymes … engine keeping up the time … I dream

rust fills the trunks and trains … the engine’s drunk again
crumbling stocks are saying … the powers are betraying
but here I sit insane … just parked in the passing lane … again

I’m poised behind the wheel though I am running
while many on this road are simply stumbling
through chaos and clutter … our daily bread and butter … I am praying

rust fills the trunks and trains … the engine’s drunk again
crumbling stocks are saying … the powers are betraying
but here I sit insane … just parked in the passing lane … again

my thoughts … they fly like rain
or a million … gypsy trains
gazing through … the window’s pain
I drive along

we’re fragile at our best and we are flawed
barely open we all work as broken locks
sense a danger in our world today … give it up and it might go away … the end

rust fills the trunks and trains … the engine’s drunk again
crumbling stocks are saying … the powers are betraying
but here I sit insane … just parked in the passing lane … again

my thoughts … they fly like rain
or a million … gypsy trains
gazing through … the window’s pain
I drive along

I’m coming home to be with you my dear
these folks are driving like their brains aren’t here
as I travel the highway of the lost … another day it gets crossed off … in time

rust fills the trunks and trains … the engine’s drunk again
crumbling stocks are saying … the powers are betraying
but here I sit insane … just parked in the passing lane … again

rust fills the trunks and trains … the engine’s drunk again
crumbling stocks are saying … the powers are betraying
but here I sit insane … just parked in the passing lane … again

but here I sit insane … just parked in the passing lane … again
but here I sit insane … just parked in the passing lane … again

just parked in the passing lane … again
