about

This song came to me as I was driving into San Francisco, approaching the Golden Gate, and wondering why I wasn't more worried about what I was doing with my life.

lyrics

It's hard to tell the hills from the clouds today
Maybe I'll take a wrong turn, discover heaven's just another suburb
Choking though the Novato Narrows
Commuters weaving into my lane, but I won't hold 'em to blame

'Cause I got nothing but time today
I'm just rolling along, blasting my favorite songs
Checking out the old Redwood Highway
Eucalyptus has spread, controlled burn up ahead

CHORUS
And it all seems a bit too easy
With the windows rolled down, soaking up all the December sun
Makes me feel a bit queasy
Are the pieces falling into place or am I falling to pieces

The bridge materializes in front of me
Trusting that the whole span is there, heading south without a care
I'm driving into oblivion
There's a toll coming up soon, but for now I'm enjoying the view

CHORUS

Among the Camrys and the Kias
I seem to be the only Pontiac
I'm feeling out of whack
Like a pine among the palms
And the traffic's setting such a frantic pace
I'm feeling out of place

CHORUS
