lyrics

I know what it’s like to be stuck in the Traffic, trying to rise above the static, feeling like an addict. Shift to the Manual on the track with automatics, and flip the script if you have to, depending on your theatrics. I’m quite the stones throw away from being perfect, traversing through the traffic while I wonder if it’s worth it. Stuck on the straight and narrow, it gets hard to reverse it, until your pace is steady and all your gears are working.

So, tonight I’m driving til’ the sun drops, by the Cascade locks, over all the treetops.
I’ll find a road that few walk, with eyes burning into the sun.
You see me moving like I’m always in the fast lane, but you already know.

I know what it’s like to be caught in the traffic, defeated by your habits, competing for that cabbage. It can be so damn dramatic, love is a funny term that turns man into savage, and it turns life into damage when it’s more than you can manage. Whether your sacrifice will lead you to the lavish lifestyles of the Rich & Painless to the Tamed & Shameless to the Dull & Faceless.

So, tonight I’m driving til’ the sun drops, by the Cascade locks, over all the treetops.
I’ll find a road that few walk, with eyes burning into the sun.
You see me moving like I’m always in the fast lane, but you already know.
