new song: the van is not expected to make it through the night (new recording)

This is a proper recording of the new one from last week, from late Friday, now with 100% more vocals and a bit of my patented "hobo with a cigar-box and a gum band" lead guitar.

the van is not expected to make it through the night

just drive on by | don't turn around
that's just our hopes and dreams | run into the ground

when you call out | don't be alarmed
if no one answers | no one comes
there are so many | pressing affairs
what's one more van | on the berm in Delaware
nothing
just one more band
ain't going anywhere
anywhere at all

walk on foot | to the turnpike rest stop
collecting change | for the pay telephone

if you pick up | don't be alarmed
i'm all right | free from harm
what's a dream | just a useless affair
there's no grand scheme | on the berm in Delaware
nothing
just one more man
ain't going anywhere
anywhere at all
