They're still building roads in the south
And we could see them all if we start driving now
And we'll do all our thinking out loud
And wait for daylight

It was in a dream we were out at a lake
After ten years in seperating states
To drain your blood of the poison
You wait for daylight

It's getting close now

Well I felt that daylight
And you left me wanting more
Get me out of this empty town
Cause I feel it changing me

There's a place off of State Street in mind
Where we spoke of Shinobi one night
And it got us to think about living our lives for what's right
To take all the things that we know
And run without letting them go
And do all our thinking out loud
And wait for daylight

It's getting close now

Well I felt that daylight
And you left me wanting more
Get me out of this empty town
And back to the ground

Well I felt that daylight
And it broke down walls inside
Get me out of this broken town
Cause I feel a change...

Daylight found you there
Drain your blood
And fill your lungs with air

Well I felt that daylight
And you left me wanting more
Get me out of this empty town
And back to the ground

Well I felt that daylight
And it broke down
It's breaking my walls down
It's draining my blood out
I feel it changing me

    General CommentThis song is pretty great. I especially like the line about "doing all our thinking out loud". I think a lot of people can relate to this song. Relationships, regrets, late nights, talking. Good stuff.

    General CommentI think this song is about wanting to get back to the simple purity of existance; without money or any kind of materialism. Leaving behind what you've done wrong and breathing in a fresh start.
