Good evening, shuttle bus, tell me where you're gonna to take us
Someplace that I have never been
It's chic transportation to new destination
Where I leave my reflection on the glass
I'd ask but we don't know how far these interstates go
Or how deep the city roots go down
In chilly sub-depth railways, the weathered concrete stairways
Provide me with a means of getting home... if I ever leave

On crystal sand
We sleep hand-in-hand
While soothing words

So many sights to see, so wake up like an early birdie
And we'll get a head-start on the day
Oh, stained-glass sky ways and crowded six-lane highways
If I look back when I begin to leave, will they remember me?

Circuit flights bend the lights
When I am spent
And tour guides make happy brides
Feel heaven-sent

(Good evening, shuttle bus
Tell me where you're gonna take us)

On crystal sand
We sleep hand-in-hand
While soothing words

On crystal sand
We sleep hand-in-hand
While soothing words
Hover like hummingbirds

(Good evening, shuttle bus
Tell me where you're gonna take us)

    Cobaltshadow's meaning is just a basic and literal interpretation of the actual lyrics, not what they represent.
    And I think that the song generally gives the feeling that Adam (or whatever fictional character he's personifying) really just needs to get away for awhile, so he boards a bus in the busy city, enjoying his ride and the view from the window. Feeling lost among the people of the crowded city, he begins to wonder who would even notice if he's gone. When he arrives somewhere outside the city, he feels so much better now that he's at a calm place with a good friend, he doesn't want to leave.
