Album Rating: 4.5
Highway Song is so amazing and its delivery is so different from most of SOAD's music in such subtle ways. It's
so serene yet casts such a dark shadow, and the lyrics appear to be about the typically unscathed topics of
social life and ostracization. The sky and clouds are metaphors for happiness via friends/community and they
become "unreal" because he is traveling in the wrong direction on the road of life. It's like he "turned right" and
lost everything because everybody moved on without him. Now that an "exit lights the sky", or death, he is
looking back on his life and the poor decisions.
