full speed down a dead end road
that leads to the place
where i don't wanna go
there's a flash of lighting
across the twilight sky
the smell of dirt
that's been beggin’ for rain
floats on the cool breeze
i hear what they're sayin
take cover, storms comin
it won't be long
i've been out drivin'
all night again
i haven't felt peace
since i don't know when
there’s no where left to go
so here's where it ends
it’s too late to turn back now

there's gonna be a shakedown
no more alibis
gonna breakdown
and open up my eyes
gonna take down the walls
so i can see the light

it's hard to say
where it all went wrong
it could be that nothin
was right all along
i guess it's true
we only see what we want to see
i’m gonna break into your house built of lies
i’m gonna catch you without your disguise
gonna take what's left of my heart
and i'll be on my way
God i've been up all night again
i haven't slept since i don't know when
there's your place just around the bend
the rain is pourin’ down.

it's a shakedown
so save your alibis
gotta breakdown
and open up my eyes
gonna takedown the walls
so i can see the light
