lyrics

DRIVING IN THE DARK

When you're driving down the highway and it's late at night
It's funny how the memories can start to glow in your headlights
Like in that dusty beam between the movie screen and the projector eye
Old ghosts flickering back to haunt you in vivid black and white

I'm thinking now about my old school friends
Some were so bright and some so dark
How some are dead and gone already
This one goes out to you Mark

My Sister told me stories about a common housefly on a train
With no idea where he was destined or even where the trip began
Some of my heroes are famous stars but the ones that shine brightest to me
Are the ones that don't just live on the TV, but closer to the family tree

As the road rises and falls ahead my car is like a boat at sea
This little car that I named Winston, we are one and we are free
Though I know that he wont last forever he's got radio and coffee
For now he is my only friend as we journey through these dreams

about

Thomas Truax London, UK

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
