lyrics

INTERSTATE TO YOUR CRANIUM

Interstate to Your Cranium,
I’m not gonna play dumb.
I’m gonna stick out my thumb,
compass-point the other direction.

Been down that road
and I'm not gonna go...
Down that road no more
Down that road no more

Been down that road
And I'm not gonna go...
Down that road no more
Down that road no more
Down that road no more
Down that road no more

Headlights pointed at a starless sky.
No UFOs to act as guide.
I don’t know why I even try;
Guess I’m just that kind of guy.

Been down that road
and I'm not gonna go...
Down that road no more
Down that road no more

Been down that road
and I'm not gonna go...
Down that road no more
Down that road no more
Down that road no more
Down that road no more

Way, way back
in the sticks.
Far from Route
66.
I’ll take the highway,
you take the glum,
Interstate to Your Cranium.
Interstate to Your Cranium.
Interstate to Your Cranium.
Interstate to Your Cranium.

Got your name on the tip of my tongue—
And I know where you’re coming from.
Catch-as-catch-can can come.
The message is the medium.

Been down that road
and I'm not gonna go...
Down that road no more
Down that road no more

Been down that road
And I'm no gonna go...
Down that road no more
Down that road no more
Down that road no more
Down that road no more

Interstate to Your Cranium.
(Come again?)
Interstate to Your Cranium.
(Come again?)
Interstate to Your Cranium.
(Come again?)
Interstate to Your Cranium
