Highway Song

Album: Steal This Album! (2002)
  • This song deals with life and the directions it can take. In some cases, quite literally: friction, lines, bumps, signs turning right - ergo, "highway" song. While it may seem that this song is about driving and getting into an accident, much more meaning can be derived from it - don't make the wrong choices because you can only choose once. >>
