Track Name: Asleep at the Wheel
We count on no one
but the friends we've grown around
and we left the fire burning
like a flame that wont go out
when you hear the footsteps coming
don't dare to lock me out
I'm simply waiting outside
don't push away the sound
and my mind keeps drawing blanks
I'm asleep at the wheel

God damn you coward
and we get so angry now
life will always catch up
as we blend into the crowd
everyone's a different person
no one can stay the same
you kept yourself in place
with no one else to blame
and my mind keeps drawing blanks
I'm asleep at the wheel.
Track Name: 28
Staring at my hands
looking back and I'm worn down to the bone
so we say it's the only way out
so we say that we've gotta get out now

we're not ready
you know we're not ready now

call me up tomorrow
call me up when you've got it figured out
a couple drinks and it's got us singing
a long night and its got us screaming out loud
Track Name: Dusty Roads
Growing up on the dusty roads
where the screen door slams and the radio plays
our favorite songs, everyone would sing along
we made it out alive by skirting all the alibis
that keep us safe and keep us in the dark

and as we bend and break we only got what we would take
and as we bend and break the damage is done-its written all over your face

Anyone can live a life but no one here can feel alive
so we sweat it out and work away the days
we do the best we can and we build up all our best defenses
to keep us safe and keep us in the dark

and as we bend and break we only got what we would take
and as we bend and break the damage is done-its written all over your face

You can't tell me to run
its far too far to run away
so much to everyone
it seems they're all one and the same
with the flame up in my bloodstream
its harder just to breathe and she said
I'm not the only one who's tried
Track Name: Time to Go
I think I've been around more than once
it's kind of hard and kind of heavy, it's not my shot
I never meant to ruin it for you
what's that that you say
it feels like I can barely hear you speak, turn up the sound
turn off the roar of the damn machine

take a ride, let it ride, it'll be alright
an empty bottle and a lonesome night
it's got me singing

lay it down
cover up, it'll hurt right now
and there's nothing I can do
Track Name: Before the Fall
Last call on the last train home
I don't think it's gunna stop and let me on
I'm out of breath and I'm out of shape
This summer you say "this summer's gunna to be the
one to set your eyes on, never gunna leave the driveway without you"

Holding back won't get us anywhere
and I just don't want to stay here

This is for the times we would have it all
and lay in bed thinking "not anymore"
when I get the patience, will it all make sense
no more excuses till we make it

Take a drive down the Highway 36
up and down through Broadway
I'm out of gas and I'm out of luck
When the fall comes you'll say
"we'll make it out better anyway,
never gunna leave the driveway without you"

That summer breeze fills the night
I'm laying on the sidewalk gazing at the stars
it wont be long till the last week of august
before the nights get cold

And all I ask
from this town
give me back what i came for
and all i want
from this god damn city
is one more night alone
