Between The Leather & Headlights

Alone in a room that's full of people

Nothing on my mind except more sleep

Take my forty dollars and head for home

Ninety miles an hour pass beneath my feet

My eyes are too tired to see the yield signs ahead


The further I go, each town is the same

Space between the leather and headlights is what to blame

You know that game


Driving in a car with only three wheels

Praying that i make it before I fall

Out the door and onto the pavement

Locks give out when you can't handle them all

How far does this road go

Are you sure it'll get me home


The further I go, each town is the same

Space between the leather and headlights is what to blame

You know that game


Spinning wheels quickly turn

Over knowledge you have learned

You can either deal with the bumps and pot holes

Or let go


Mechanical failure pull it over

Parked on the side with an oil leak

Frame will be dust if it gets any older

Engine wasn't built for this speed

Way too cheap to trade it in

With all the years it'd be a shame to see it end


The further I go, each town is the same

The space between the leather and headlights is what to blame

You know his name
