Dreamt that I was Driving

Dreamt that I was driving an old truck up a dirt highway
It was somewhere up the rambling Central Coast
All the sudden drenched in darkness and the woman on the radio
Said the place lost all the power from its host

In the darkness my pale headlights hardly deigned to show the lane lines
Decided to go back the way I came
Drove a little while then I stopped there by the side
To see if I just might be slightly entertained

The ground was wet with insects like the plague was back upon us
and I saw some people walking up a hill
Followed a man with glasses on and we entered some tilted concrete room
Knew that there was something here that kills

Spiders and cracked windows and a doorway leading nowhere
So I jumped right through to see though I was blind
A box crunched in a corner, picked it up and looked it over
Some fire glowed from way down deep inside

Never knew what I was looking for, and I lost the thing that caused the glow
Felt a little bit uncertain about that
But I woke with someone next to me held close and breathing easily
So I must have been doing something not so bad

The ground was wet with insects like the plague was back upon us
and I saw some people walking up a hill
Followed a man with glasses on and we entered some tilted concrete room
Knew that there was something here that kills
