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.


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

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


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
