you were a map of the entire country but
now you're a traffic sign, with just one word
you were the sunshine inside of my eyes
when i was trying to merge

so thanks for construction on my way to work
you're just doing your job and i think you're the worst
when i am exhausted, and thinking of nothing
can still taste the toothpaste on dry english muffins

it's hard to coexist
when you keep driving like this

(yeah. yuh. uhhhhhh, yeah!
well okay, yeah i'll see you soon. alright love you)

blinding refractions resulting in fragments of glass
if life is a highway, you're a minivan riding my ass

*my touch is jeweled [and] my smile[s] a motorcar*
drive through the tollbooth, wondering if i was overcharged
delivered my car to the watery deep
with you on my mind, and pizzas in the passenger seat

well it's hard to coexist
when you keep driving like this
and im further off course with each exit i miss
well its hard
to co

(aughh, omg omg)
