"Drive" as written by Scott Hill, Bob Balch, Brad Davis and Brant Bjork....
When chaos reigns without a purpose
When the swell of sound becomes too much
Crushed between the cogs that work us
When I feel I'm slowly losing touch

Sometimes I drive to run from all my demons
Sometimes I drive so I can be alone
Sometimes I drive to see the world in different light
Sometimes I drive for no reason at all

When the walls close in around me
When the ceiling's caving in
When anxiety surrounds me
When my patience is wearing thin

Sometimes I drive to run from all my demons
Sometimes I drive so I can be alone
Sometimes I drive to see the world in different light
Sometimes I drive for no reason at all

The open road unwinds before me
An onyx ribbon spreading out
No idea where I'll be going
Sometimes the journey is what counts

Sometimes I drive to run from all my demons
Sometimes I drive so I can be alone
Sometimes I drive to see the world in different light
Sometimes I drive for no reason at all

Sometimes I drive to run from all my demons
Sometimes I drive so I can be alone
Sometimes I drive to see the world in different light
Sometimes I drive for no reason at all

    General CommentI love to listen to this song in the car, to remind myself to calm down and enjoy the journey that is life. Meditation is vital to finding peace.

    General CommentGotta agree with the above 2 posts.

    Can't think of a better song to be listened to while driving.

    I love the terse imagery of these lyrics. My highlights:

    "crushed between the cogs that work us" machine gears imagery, life as an oppressive machine

    The road as an "onyx ribbon spreading out"
