"Asleep At The Wheel" as written by Michael Elvis Baskette and Torry Jasper....
Asleep at the wheel a red light mistake
Take my word for what its worth
Life at a stand still not one second passes
And in the asphalt I see a best friend
(crashing through the window)

Don't move
Save me
Cry out
To god above

And would you save everyone if you
Saw them dying
Watch as they slip through your hands
Bring me back to life bring them back to life
One step further form all of this

Abstract emotions in dealing with death
The warmth of my breath turns to ice
Beating the concrete your hands
Cut and bruised and in the end
Not a question of why
(crashing through the window)

Don't move
Save me
Cry out
To god above

And would you save everyone
If you saw them dying
Watch as they slip through your hands
Bring them back to life bring them back to life
One step further from all of this

Never forget what I'm bleeding
Gasp for air now I am apart of this
Leave me suffering never break
Your promises
Never forget and you'll
Never forget what I've done

And would you save everyone
If you saw them dying
Watch as they slip through your hands
Bring me back to life bring them back to life
One step further from all of this

Don't move
Save me
Cry out
To god above

    General CommentThis song is about questioning why bad things happen to people. Essentially, the author is questioning why God doesn't intervene when bad things happen that are out of a person's control. The Problem of Evil is a central question to the philosophical debate on the existence of God. Why would a perfect, loving God (the Judeo-Christian god specifically) allow people to suffer? Its not an easy question to answer, especially since the solution to evil seems to only be found in God. If you would like more clarity to this debate, please research works by Alvin Plantinga. He's given the most convincing philosophical arguments in the most understandable way.

    General Commentmy personal favorite by ACOP....as for the meaning...pretty straight forward...guy gets in a car crash (asleep at the wheel) his best friend gets thrown through the windshield and probably gets killed and the driver probably lives and feels at fault for the death of his friend. the song pretty much narrates the story..

    Song MeaningThis song has actually been "dedicated" by Torry himself to a few different events. He WAS in a car accident. A prety bad one. And one of his friends was in a different car accident that was even worse.
