Lyrics
City to city we travel in vans from
The east to the west coast
To places abandoned
We'll stalk through a small town
For traitors and strangers
The road is not salted
But we'll take our chances

We drive and take in this world from the window
We roll and move to the beat of an engine
We stop, another day spent by the side of the road
Pick yourself up and continue to run

This life is not for everyone
It's harder than you know
Cheap hotels and couches
Have become a certain norm
Follow those that can
Before you didn't pack away
Your chapter is forever
But until this stops

We drive, and take in this world from the window
We run and move to the beat of an engine
We stop, another day spent by the side of the road
I can't stay here forever
Watching the cars go by
I can't stay here forever
Watching the road wind down
And I'll remember what you said before I leave
'Good luck and come home in one piece to me'
If this is what you could be killing
We made this decision
We're doing this the hard way

I can't stay here forever
Watching the cars go by
I can't stay here forever
Watching the road as we
Drive, and take in this world from the window
We run and move to the beat of an engine
We stop, another day spent by the side of the road
You're just so fucking alone
