“22”
written on 9/13/06

the future is so uncertain
there are no roadsigns at this fork in the road
there are no u-turns to the past I know so well
can’t I just pull over and get my bearings for a while?

i thought I had it all figured out
they said if I had a college degree
that is all I would need
but now I’m driving alone in this car meant for two
and I’m just grinding my gears
as I can’t figure out whether or not to lay off the brake
as I look for another route

the billboards are only advertising
the dead-end jobs I have been through
and the signs on the side of the road aren’t pointing to any location I haven’t already been to
and with all the weight of of this moment I am not sure how to keep this engine from stalling

from blown out tires to broken glass
i’m sure you all know what it’s like to feel stranded
trying my best to avoid the circuits
that only spin me around
show me the right interstate where I can fly free
