lyrics

Staring into sunset, Cherokee County line,
Gas station shots of God-knows-what,
I hope you’re ready, say a prayer and pour the wine,
The whole world’s screaming in my ear,
Your whisper’s all I want to hear.

White-knuckling Appalachia,
My shirt is clean soaked through,
Doing 80 in the right lane ‘cause it's all this piece of shit can do.
I grin the dumbest grin, I think I’ve come unglued,
Pinch myself and it’s all true.
Get set - I’m coming straight for you,

White lines blurring - can’t see,
Full-moon laughing at me,
Bug-kill graveyard on the windshield now,
18-wheelers swerving,
Hairpin curves unnerving,
And I’m cranking Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake,
I’m wide awake.

Five wasted years would not stop the bleeding,
I’m always half-empty but always believed in
our storybook ending - and that’s why I’m speeding.
Compensating for lost time,
Breaking the curse of our kind.

White lines blurring - can’t see,
Full-moon laughing at me,
Bug-kill graveyard on the windshield now,
18-wheeler swerving,
Hairpin curves unnerving,
And I’m cranking The Ramones debut,
I’ll get to you.

Patience is a virtue but my vices just don’t care,
Ten more miles and I’ll be there.
