LAURIE ANDERSON lyrics - Lighting Out For The Territories

"Lighting Out For The Territories"

You're driving and it's dark and it's raining.
And you're on the edge of the city and you've been driving all night.
And you took a turn back there but now you're not sure it was the right turn.
But somehow it looks familiar so you just keep driving.
Hello. Excuse me.
Can you tell me where I am?

You've been on this road before.
You can read the signs.
You can feel your way.
You can do this in your sleep.
