Native

Pack up the car. We’ll drive until we cannot see
Any signs of this so-called humanity
Don’t stop for gas now
We're gonna ride this sunset road
Keep driving north out of these arc-light halos

Pick up some friends along the way
We’ll ditch the grind for slower days
Turn off at the bend, leave the last light
From here on in,
let’s pretend that there’s

No roads out of here
No way to send for help
We’re stuck together
with nothing but time to kill
No way back again
Couldn’t escape if we tried
You and I are going native for the weekend

Pull up a chair, we'll laugh about when we were young
Life is good now but
it’s fun to see how far we’ve come

Tell me your dreams friend
I want to hear those turning wheels
Out here underneath the trees
we can be ourselves

We’ll light a fire when darkness comes
listen to the rain fall on the lake
Can’t you feel the air back in your lungs
We all understand without saying
There's no road out of here
