lyrics

Got a suicide knob on this hopped up Pontiac GTO
at that bend in the road that leads down along the Gulf of Mexico.
She’s sleeping now resting her head right upon my heart.
And I love this girl so much I think I might die.

Outside a wild wind is blowing…
feels like the car is moving a little too fast.
She’s got a secret that she’s withholding.
Seems like I’d be the first to know but I think I’m the last…
to realize that we’re going nowhere,
going nowhere on this highway of lost hats.

Oh, beautiful girl are you drinking that turpentine again?
Does it make all them ghosts go dancing around in your brain?
I remember you saying how hard life was—that they haunt you bad.
But lately it seems to me them ghost are the only friends
you wanna have.

Why can’t you feel these wheels a’ turning?
See the light coming up in the darkness ahead?
It’s our fine mansion and it is burning.
But she don’t even stir as we go speeding past.
This little girl she’s lost in her dream world,
and me I’m going nowhere fast.
Just speeding down this highway of lost hats.

There’s nothing ahead of us now but blacktop for miles and miles.
And I wish she’d just wake up and say the words I already hear.
‘Cause there’s nowhere to turn off and
nothing to do but keep going on.
And when I roll down the window
I feel that cold wind come rushing in.

She opens her eyes and looks right through me.
And I realize to her I’m already gone.
I’m just blowing along back there in the distance,
coming to rest with all the other
discarded hats of fools and lovers
dumb enough to take this ride
where you get abandoned along the side
side of the highway of lost hats.
