"Brake, Brake" as written by James Matthews, Josh Wilkinson and Zack Wilkinson....
Go, but the light's on red
We're waiting on the starting line
Can feel my heartbeat
Mouth so dry.

And yeah, don't waste no time,
Strap yourself in, don't be shy, tonight

The roads we don't know say to drive slow,
We're going too fast, we're going too fast,
I couldn't stop if I wanted to try, now

Brake, brake, brake,
But a moment just too late,
For God's sake,
This life I just can't waste.
As hearts race,
And the clock it stops in time, we're going

Down, Down, Down
And the shouting screams they drown
With no sound,
But the shattered glass so loud
I shout out,
'Cause I think we're going under, under.

The sky turns red,
The silent screams ring in my head, again.
Burning fills the air around,
I don't think I'll be found lying here.

The roads we don't know say to drive slow,
We're going too fast, we're going too fast,
I couldn't stop if I wanted to try, now

Brake, Brake, Brake,
But a moment just too late,
For God's sake,
This life I just can't waste.
As hearts race,
And the clock it stops in time, we're going

Down, Down, Down,
And the shouting screams they drown,
With no sound.
But the shattered glass so loud,
I shout out,
'Cause I think were going under, under.

Brake, brake, this is more than I can take,
For Gods sake,
Help me get out of this place.
I can't wait cos I'm cold and left alone,
I shout out but no one hears my calls.

Brake, brake, this is more than I can take,
For God's sake,
Help me get out of this place.
I can't wait cos I'm cold and left alone,
I shout out but no one hears me.

Brake, brake, brake,
But a moment just too late,
For God's sake,
This life I just can't waste,
As hearts race,
And the clock it stops in time.
So help me

Brake, brake, brake,
But a moment just too late,
For God's sake,
This life I just can't waste.
As hearts race,
And the clock it stops in time,
We're going

Down, down, down,
And the shouting screams they drown,
With no sound.
But the shattered glass so loud,
I shout out, 'cause I think were going under, we're going

Down, Down, Down,
And the shouting screams they drown,
With no sound.
But the shattered glass so loud,
I shout out, 'cause I think we're going under,

We're going down

    General CommentI think this song is about a car crash with quite a few people involved and he's describing what it's like and also fear of death but I could be wrong. It doesn't really make sense with the first two paragraphs, but it does with the rest of the song.
    I think you've written a mistake, because it sounds like ' but the shattered glass so loud' and not 'but the shutters crack so loud'

    Just my opinion. I love the song though

    General CommentI think the song IS about a car race/crash.. but perhaps not a literal one.

    Maybe a relationship which seems a lot like a car crash.

    I know I can relate to that.

    General Commentthe first line should be 'go but the lights are red' not 'go but the lights on red'
