lyrics

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 burdened by the reflection
of the fire in your eyes as you're staring at the sun
when i ran i didn't feel like a runaway
when i escaped i didn't feel like i got away
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 the destruction in your eyes as you're staring at sun
