"Route One" as written by and Erik Hans/farm Ohlsson....
I've seen it all before
The people and the bars there in
It doesn't turn me on no more
It's a place already done and been
Sometimes I gotta take a stand
I gotta act or I won't proceed
Which part of this don't you understand
Which part of me is hard to read

It wold kill me If I stay here
Maybe kill me If I go
I rather take the road less traveled
Than face shit I already know.
I had my share of good and bad years
But I just can't stick around
It would kill me if I stay
I hope you understand me why I'm leaving town

There's no motivation here
When everybody is all the same
Too much boredom Too much fear
And I'm sick off all this name and shame
I can't take it anymore
Don't like the person I've become
I need a new place to explore
Something different than where I'm from

It wold kill me If I stay here
Maybe kill me If I go
I rather take the road less traveled
Than face shit I already know.
I had my share of good and bad years
But I just can't stick around
It would kill me if I stay
I hope you understand me why I'm leaving town

But everyone's afraid of going backwards to degrade
Everyone's afraid of the strange
But if we only live life once
Then I've just got to live mine now
And it's gotta be a life in change...
That's why I'm leaving town

It wold kill me If I stay here
Maybe kill me If I go
I rather take the road less traveled
Than face shit I already know.
I had my share of good and bad years
But I just can't stick around
It would kill me if I stay
I hope you understand me why I'm leaving town.

    General Commenti think this song's about not being able to live in the town your living in any longer.
    you're tired of the people and all the thing's in this town are just the same and nothing new is going on.
    as nicolas singing, the town also changed the person and he/she doesn't like it so he/she needs to get out. and b/c you only live once you should take a chance and just get out, and don't worry about what might be somewhere else or how things would turn out in the end.

    so i think i couldn't express myself as good as i could have probably do it in german b/c my english is not that good.
    but all in all i think i get the meaning and it is just exactly how i'm feeling for a long time. the only thing i'm thinking about is leaving this shitty town i'm living in right now, meet new people, see new places.
    i'm bored as hell.
