TRASH ALONG THE HIGHWAY

there's trash along the highway
dirty bottles, rusted cans
there's trash along the highway
billboards advertisin' wonderland

I would go somewhere
if there was a place 
that I could stand

they talk about the internet
I wish that I could go
I've heard about the internet
and its golden glow

but I’m stuck
beside this highway
cause my modem's 
way too slow

they played me for a sucker 
and they sucked me right on in
they played me for a sucker
said I could finally win

they took me
for all I had 
then they said
"Ambition is a sin."

there's trash along the highway
that's all that I can see
there's trash along the highway
and part of it is me

this is where they threw me 
when my blood 
stopped turning green

there's trash along the highway
that's all that I can see
there's trash along the highway
and part of it is me
