Light starts in a dark place
The story of a car chase
And I've become the criminal
Fleeing from the scene
And being caught in a bad dream
The truth becomes the unthinkable

I'm on the brink of disaster
Staring down the consequences
To brake hard would be better
Tonight I'll do what it takes to fail

Going there only faster
Jump the gun and throw it into gear
But the fact of that matter,
I'm out of control, asleep at the wheel
Asleep at the wheel
I'm out of control, asleep at the wheel

Night falls with no grace
I said I can do anything
But I can do anything wrong
And with burning speed
The rear view says it's catching up to me
But I'm already gone

I'm on the brink of disaster
Staring down the consequences
To brake hard would be better
Tonight I'll do what it takes to fail

Going there only faster
Jump the gun and throw it into gear
But the fact of the matter,
I'm out of control, asleep at the wheel
Asleep at the wheel

Tearing it down to open up the highway
We're looking for an exit
No pretending

Speeding down and around
With a sobering smash
Starting at a car crash
Oh, the chase is ending

I'm on the brink of disaster
Staring down the consequences
To brake hard would be better
Tonight I'll do what it takes to fail

Going there only faster
Jump the gun and throw it into gear
But the fact of the matter
The end is coming

I'm on the brink of disaster
Staring down the consequences
To brake hard would be better
I'm out of control, asleep at the wheel
Asleep at the wheel

Asleep at the wheel
Asleep at the wheel
I'm out of control, asleep at the wheel
