lyrics

Twenty-three hours a day, staring a cement walls and eyes that await your fall
Just a puppet in their collection of poor habits, boredom and insecurities
As their headlights get closer and closer to your rear, they can smell the fear, they can smell the fear-
It’s swerving faster than their tires peering to the next lane so you can’t steer clear, you can’t steer clear.

They’ve got you locked inside this cell and they’ll tell you you’re responsible for looking like hell
When your face is blue and your eyes are red, they’ll suck the air from you until you drop dead.

Forced out of bed. Wake up! Wake up, sleepy head.
They’re all watching you. They’re all waiting for you.
DRIVE right through the smog, keep windows closed and you won’t choke just yet.

You’re not safe when you’re surrounded by people who don’t want to understand.
The fear reciprocates because they can’t hold your identity in their hands
It’s not what Mom and Dad taught them as a kid, they’re not sure where to stick their teeth in quite yet.
As I take my foot off the gas, I wait for them to pass, as images swirl through this contorted mess
I feel as if everything I want to say is fucking trash, as if they’ll jump right down my throat
At any mention, with no chance for redemption, only judgement before the hawks
For impurity and imperfection, for being too damn sensitive in this equal opportunity offensiveness-land.
So, pull yourself up by the bootstraps, bitter one; you better find a way to fucking drive.
