"Asleep at the Wheel" as written by and Scott Rinning....
The first duty of man
Is to collect as many things as he can
Nothing should stand in his way
This should be his sole pursuit
Time-wasting is a crime
And history is just a noise
For God is void

Falling asleep at the wheel
Falling asleep at the wheel

Who'll stand up and fight
An enemy we cannot touch?
For it's somewhere in the air
And just by breathing you're taking part

Time-wasting's my crime
And history must have a use
For God's not void

Who'll stand up and fight
An enemy we cannot touch?

Can I ask why?

Falling asleep at the wheel

    General CommentI LOVE this song! It's fuckin brilliant. Kinda Cure/Interpolish sounding. I love the jam at the end how it breaks up like a DJ's remix how it stops and kinda breaks up. And then they just keep playing those chords. The CInematics are an unbelievable band and this song is perfect for driving at tnight, well the whole albunm is
