"Tennessee Train Tracks" as written by and Rocky Votolato....
Come dry me out
'Cause I've been drinking all night
Before I pass out I need your ghost to tell me this bloodless voice
Is as meaningless as it sounds

Hard fought for some spare time
To sit around and search for something I ain't never gonna find
Colors fade in the night sky
Lightning bugs are flashing on the

Front porch no it's in my head
To take me back to another time
'Cause once its gone it's just something you ain't never gonna find
No matter how hard you try

There's no reason to stop it and you
Couldn't if you wanted now
Come dry me out
Just not with your

Fist I'm not looking for a fight
Hard fought for some spare time
To search through books and records for something you ain't never
Gonna find

If you could just make up your mind
Train tracks
Can't decide
Tennessee morning leaves you paralyzed

    General Commentit's about someone wanting you to relive something you had in the past, but knowing the only place for you is somwhere in a forward direction.

    General Commentfuckin good song. i think you're right in a sense, but i think it's a lot deeper as well. it's about an existential choice, the fear of choice, a fear of a future that lacks something you can't let go of from the past. It's about how we'll never really understand anything fully as the essence of the world is a mystery, a void. It's about being in the moment, "train tracks
    can't decide " seems to say that you have to be here now to make the choice to move in a more positive direction, if you are in a stupor where you are stuck on a thought or stuck in a cycle, you are in a sense inanimate, and thus you cannot mold your future. it's about a lot of things.
