Inspired by the book "Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter" by Seth Grahame-Smith. A rocking commentary on the voting process with lots of drums


I am curled up in the back seat empty coffee cups at my feet
The road goes on for miles and miles and miles
There are things outside my window places I wish that we could go
But back-seat driving has never been my style
We reach our destination is it my imagination or have we ended up on lower ground
We were headed for the mountain but we got turned around
Somehow you always bring me down
Next time I call shotgun in the front seat with my maps drawn
I watch the traffic I read all the signs
But there's a detour and a speeding trap I am getting hungry I need a nap
Now all the roads just seem to intertwine
Now I'm in the driver's seat I am in control I'll take the heat
In the fast lane with the sports cars and V-8s
But that dashboard voice entrances me she speaks authoritatively
And I sit back while she recalculates


from I Read Your Book, released June 1, 2013
Tom Prasada-Rao plays drums.
