The Car Song is an unreleased song by the Mountain Goats.

LyricsEdit

The highway's open and the sun is full
And the vinyl upholstery heats up like worsted wool
The hills roll past us, then they rear up again
Take a deep breath now and count to ten
I reach across the stick shift and I pull you near
The highway's open and it's hot in here, it's hot in here

Your skin sends all the sunlight back to hell
And you shine in the coming darkness and I guess it's just as well
That there's no one left, there's no one left at all
And then the hills behind your eyes start burning 
Like a solid wall of licking flames
They burn red and clear
The highway's open and it's hot in here, it's hot in here
