lyrics

Who built the old coast road, rising like a crooked leg from the foot of the Bixby? How many souls do these hills know? Think back to Kerouac and his holy lonely lantern on his way to Ferlinghetti's, last night or a thousand years ago. These cliffs and this ocean, they've seen all your cameras and your paintbrushes trying, they aren't ever going to stop to pose. These rocks have been surfing since long before their wet-feathered tenants could afford them, back when the wind was into writing prose. Let's catch the sun out on Rocky Point, Saint Francis of Assisi chose us to anoint, up in the woods above Deetjen's inn, to help us find our way back to Route 1 again. And the moon wakes up and climbs the Santa Lucia Range after sleeping in the valley, waves whisper in my ear, going up to the city, it's a three-hour drive on the edge of the world, from the place that never leaves my rearview mirror.
