Thoughts in time and out of season
The Hitchhiker stood by the side of the road
And leveled his thumb
In the calm calculus of reason.
 
Hi. How you doin’?
 
I just got back into town,
 
L.A.
 
I was out in the desert for awhile
 
“Riders on the storm”
 
Yeah. In the middle of it
 
“Riders on the storm”
 
Right…
 
“Into this world we’re born”
 
Hey, listen, man, I really got a problem
 
“Into this world we’re thrown”
 
When I was out on the desert, ya know
 
“Like a dog without a bone
An actor out on loan”
 
I don’t know how to tell you
 
“Riders on the storm”
 
but, ah, I killed somebody
 
“There’s a killer on the road”
 
No…
 
“His brain is squirming like a toad”
 
It’s no big deal, ya know
 
I don’t think anybody will find out about it, but…
 
“take a long holiday”
 
just, ah…
 
“Let your children play”
 
this guy gave me a ride, and ah…
 
“If you give this man a ride”
 
started giving me a lot of trouble
 
“Sweet family will die”
 
and I just couldn’t take it, ya know
 
“Killer on the road”
 
And I wasted him
 
Yeah.
