No shoes, asleep on the highway
You used to be so aware
No way you know where you came from
What’d you do to your hair?

Walk fast, you feel like an island
A jet ski without handlebars
No food, it doesn’t feel hungry
Blacktop circles on Mars

Almost at the silo
On my way to Mile-O

This road, the joke’s always on him
As cactus turns into sleet
You count backwards high as you can think
Someday, you two will meet

Vital as all of this seems now
Fit all you can in your hands
Wondering if you’ll need the cure, well
Who can really be sure?

Almost at the silo
On my way to Mile-O
