"The Truth About Liars" as written by Scot Golley, Daniel Benjamin Yemin, David J Palaitis, Ari Zev Katz and Peter M Martin....
I chose a life of missed callings
And lost hopes of empty trains and railway dreams.
Losing fast and gaining steam.
I was born tonight down highway skies.
When miles race under my head I'll remember what you said.
And I'll stay out till it's done for me.
And my legacy will be one that keeps pushing me away.
So it's back to engines underfoot and miles of great disdain.
They never understand the way I walk.
And it's you that knows it's the way I talk
That keeps me from knowing
When I should see the things you're showing me.
And it's you I want to do this to.
And it's looks like that that'll make me stay with you.
Keep your cool I'll be home soon.
And know that it's you.
Hey Scottie.
Come on.

    General CommentI chose a life of missed callings
    And lost hopes
    Of empty trains
    Railway dreams
    Losing fast
    Gaining steam

    I was born tonight down highway skies

    When miles race under my head
    I'll remember what you said
    And I'll stay out till it's done for me
    And my legacy will be one that keeps me pushing me away
    So it's back to engines
    Underfoot
    And miles of great disdain

    They never understand the way I walk
    And you know it's the way I talk
    That keep me from knowing when I should see
    The things you're showing me
    And it's you I want to do this to
    And it's looks like that that'll make me stay with you

    Keep your cool I'll be home soon
    And know that it's you
    It's you
    It's you

    General Commenti think this song has something to do with graffiti, particularly on trains

    "my legacy will be one that keeps pushing me away"
    i.e. the train pushes his work away


    and at the end, he is telling his girl that even though he dissapears at night to go paint, he always comes home
