"Under The Tracks" as written by Ian Sefchick and Sharky Laguana....
There is a place, it has a face, and he was walking out the door
His mother said she was ashamed 'cause he had no place to go
He was afraid and I was fine he wanted piece of mind
Three times done and you gone, and you're gone
You are free, you are free, it's a long way home
What have we done, was it wrong, is it wrong
Is it me? Can't you see, it's a long way home?

There is a snake he will awake and he will get you off the floor
You'll start to shake, your friends will sweat, you are high you will forget
She is afraid 'cause you are dying but you have got your piece of mind
Three times done and you're gone, and you're gone
You are free, you are free, it's a long way home
What have we done, was it was it wrong is it wrong
Is it me? Can't you see, it's a long way home?

And I won't make your dreams come true, it's all you
You've got to change your lonely ways to make it through

You found a place in outer space and it won't hurt anymore
Your lovely hand has slipped away and there is nothing left to say
And you were born of yellow sand there is no plan there is no end
Three times done and you're gone and you're gone
You are free, you are free, it's a long way home
All night long, I was wrong, I was wrong
It was me, can't you see, it's a long way home

It took a million lights to see her smile
Don't touch, it's too much to break a leg she'll send you home
Afraid of love, afraid you might get hurt
Good luck, don't get stuck, turn right before you can't go back

    General CommentThis is one of the most amazing songs ever. For when you take the wrong roads in life and you have to backtrack to find your way back home again and carry on the big road of life. Everyone makes mistakes, I feel like this is the kind of mistake where you have your eyes on all the wrong things and you figure out that you were wrong, and you left the road you needed to travel and you just need to start again and find your way back to peace of mind.
    Absolutely love this song, beautiful..and hopeful.

    General Commentthe song was in the movie Oragne County, not the TV show, well I guess it could have been on the TV show as well, but the OC reference is about the movie. Good song though.

    General Commentlove this song really nice and calming. I think it's about how you're leaving home because you want some adventure and to know you're living a real life (peace of mind), but then you get there and home's alot better, so you need to know when to turn back (was it wrong?/ it's a long way home).
