Maybe life is like a ride on a freeway
Dodging bullets while you’re trying to find your way
Everyone’s around, but no one does a damn thing
It brings me down, but I won’t let them

If I seem bleak, well, you’d be correct
And if I don’t speak, it’s ’cause I can’t disconnect
But I won’t be burned by the reflection
Of the fire in your eyes

As you’re staring at the sun, whoa
As you’re staring at the sun, whoa
As you’re staring at the sun, whoa
As you’re staring at the sun
As you’re staring at the sun

Hey, when I ran I didn’t feel like a runaway
Hey, when I escaped I didn’t feel like I got away
Hey, there’s more to living than only surviving
Maybe I’m not there, but I’m still trying

Though you hear me, I don’t think that you relate
My will is something that you can’t confiscate
So forgive me, but I won’t be frustrated
By destruction in your eyes

As you’re staring at the sun, whoa
As you’re staring at the sun, whoa

Hey, when I ran I didn’t feel like a runaway
Hey, when I escaped I didn’t feel like I got away
Hey, there’s more to living than only surviving
Maybe I’m not there, but I’m still trying

Though you hear me, I don’t think that you relate
My will is something that you can’t confiscate
So forgive me, but I won’t be frustrated
By destruction in your eyes

As you’re staring at the sun, whoa
As you’re staring at the sun, whoa

Hey, maybe life is like a ride on a freeway
Hey, dodging bullets while you’re trying to find your way
Hey, everyone’s around, but no one does a damn thing
It brings me down, but I won’t let them

If I seem bleak, well, you’d be correct
And if I don’t speak, it’s ’cause I can’t disconnect
But I won’t be burned by the reflection
Of the fire in your eyes

As you’re staring at the sun, whoa
As you’re staring at the sun, whoa
As you’re staring at the sun, whoa
As you’re staring at the sun
As you’re staring at the sun
