Turn the Engine on

and take me anywhere but home.
Drive on to where the street lights end

I'm confused. The start of the poem seems to indicate a wish for change - "anywhere but home" - whilst the end - "road is mapped out" - seems to indicate predestination.

You're right, the poem's narrator has a desire for change. It is the driver that has the power to bring about that change and the 'road is mapped out' refers to the inevitability of the relationship between the narrator and driver.
Hope this makes sense:)

Makes more sense to me now {as you get older the grey cells don't function as well!!}
