HIDDEN DRIVEWAY

[Spoken Word intro:]
I was driving one day down that county road in the general direction of Whiting
It was along that thinning stand of the Pine Barrens that I saw that sign,
That sign that got me scratchin' my head and thinkin' about my aspirations
That warning sign warning less-than-discreetly: Hidden Driveway

A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway sign
along the roadway
Isn't my...
my idea...
my idea of privacy

I wouldn't want any lettering
announcing my turf
I would want my cul de sac
to be more covert

A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway where
I'd hide my car
A hidden house
away from the chaos
you see on the news
at the ten o' clock hour

Oh, what the heck:
A hidden sundeck,
away from the prying eyes
craning their necks

A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway

A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway

I wouldn't live in total seclusion
I'd give my friends driving directions
and I'd mark on the map my hidden driveway
I would throw a hidden garden party

A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway,
Where concealment & elitism
intersect
I'd feel at home:
A home I'd die to protect

A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway sanctuary
I’m a hidden drivweay,
A hidden driveway refugee

A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway

A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway

I wouldn't live in total seclusion
I'd give my friends driving directions
and I'd mark on the map my hidden driveway
I would throw a hidden garden party

A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway

A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway
A hidden driveway
