Lyrics by Jacob Koestler

lyrics

Got a car, drive it loud
I let a little roll off and catch the rest on ten
Everything I wanted was half of what they gave me
And all the rest was taken in twos and the ever-willing threes

All alone on the road
Twist of signs, kick of gravel, and the sway of trees
And all the fruit was never enough to keep me grounded
Flight over fight, or feeling open too much to bite

I'm wasted on the wrong track
A sputtering of headlights on the horizon

I'm burnt out, I've peeled through
And at the speed I'm going I don't think at all
Everything I brought was a gun, bag of tobacco,
And a necklace with a ruby star

All alone with a list
Lot clerks, wives, and the rest down the road
And all their lives were never enough to keep me grounded
Fight after fight and still to the embarrassed flea

I'm wasted on the wrong track
A sputtering of headlights on the horizon
But given my head, it's the one way
Given my head, it's the one way

Given my head , it's the one way
