Automobile
LYRICS...
It feels good to go
In one straight line
From A to B
In my automobile

Smooth and fast
In the traffic flow
And the lights go by
And the sky's aglow

I'm not reading any signs
Because I know this road
And the driving's good
And I drive alone

Automobile

Just a turn of the wheel
Down the one-way street
I take a glance in the mirror
And I sit back in the seat

Make a graceful curve
Up to the interchange
Then I glide up to the lights
I'm feeling top of the range

Automobile

Through the traffic lights
Down to the expressway
Along the harbourside
Across the filter lanes

Into Chinatown
Through industrial zones
By the shopping malls
And the high-rise homes

Automobile

There's a beautiful face
Behind the pale green glass
I take a glance in the mirror
Then I drive on past

There's a time of life
When you need to choose
So I glance in the mirror
Then I tune into the news

Automobile

Drive by the fountains
And the restaurants
All the trees are lit
Down the boulevards

Mathematical curves
Symmetrical lines
Made of metal and glass
Ergonomic designs

Automobile

NOTES...
"The pleasure of travelling through a city. Of being able to negotiate with some style. And of beginning to know who you are. I imagined it as a sort of retro future TV ad, shot by Fritz Lang or Wim Wenders."
