Interstate 10 - Dinosaur

louise said to john "you never talk
when there's something on your mind
you just take that damn dog for a walk"
john said "louise, let me explain
about dinosaurs and pain.

see, if you take a long nail

louise said, "john, well you see
it's like the galaxy
'cause it takes a million years
for the light to reach us here

to show you what i'm feeling"
john said "that's ok, i understand
but say that you love me...

john and louise were making up
they were tired of talking
all the time it'd taken up
but louise said to john "tell me again
about dinosaurs and pain"
and john said
"if you take a long nail...
