Animal Collective – On A Highway lyrics

I'm on a highway
I take a mental picture
Of the place I want.
Now it's living in me.

On a highway
Thinking of the one who
I left alone and hoping
I don't know how I'm coping

On a highway
I let the bad things taunt
Or do they want to haunt me?
I do not know how they find me

On a highway
I watch the singing driver
On the speaker phone
He mouths the words he should sing

On a highway
Some pretty lilly passenger
Her toes against the window
What happened to the tunes then

On a highway
I know they are not moving
Moved by conversation
I'll pretend I know what they say

On a highway
Can't sit around expending
I work against the window
That's great you called

On a highway
The woman calls me lucky
For all the places I stay
It's hard for me not say

Ah Can't Breath(3x)

On a highway
Hypnotized by sun strokes
Passing by some dead bones
Flowers for the dead grow

On a highway
There are some workers pissing
It's starts my bladder itching
Can I wait for the exit?

On a highway
The leaves are green forever
I let some hash relax me
Get lost in human pleasure

On a highway
I'm sick from too much reading
Jealous of noah's dreaming
Can't help my brain from thinking

Ah Can't Breath(3x)
