Dead end driving in the dark
We don’t know what were headed for
Like lighters flicking off sparks
We’ve been counting on a little more

Dead end working every day
Wondering how we’re gonna get through
And the time will come when we won’t wanna play
Along just to make do

Well I don’t know what you want, I don’t know what you want
But we been dead end driving in the dark
Tell me how we gonna make a mark?

My philosophy, new ways that I have found
To see things I have not seen, bright enough to turn me around
Surely it’s a waste to think, someone’s gonna carry us now

Dead end talking bout a dream
That we really ought to set free
Cause it likely isn’t what it seems
And it no longer appeals to me

So I don’t know what you want
I don’t know what you want
But we’ve been end driving in the dark
And it ain’t no way to make a mark
We’ve been dead end driving in the dark
And it ain’t no way to make a mark

My philosophy, new ways that I have found
To see things I have not seen, bright enough to turn me around
Surely it’s a waste to think, someone’s gonna carry us out

Carry us out
