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

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

The road we dont know says to drive slow,
We're going too fast, we're going too fast,
I couldnt stop if I wanted to try,
Now..

Brake,Brake,Brake,
But a moment just too late,
For God's sake,
This life I just cant waste.
As hearts brake,
& the clock it stops in time,
We're going..

Down,Down,Down
& the shouting screams they drown
No sound,
But the shutters crack so loud
I shout out,
'Cos 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 dont think i'll be found..
Lying here.

The road we don't know says to drive slow,
We're going too fast, we're going too fast,
I couldnt 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 brake,
& the clock it stops in time,
Were going..

Down,Down,Down,
& the shouting screams they drown,
No sound.
But the shutters crack so loud,
I shout out,
'Cos 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 cant wait cos im 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 cant wait cos im 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 cant waste,
As hearts race,
& 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 cant waste.
As hearts race,
& the clock it stops in time,
We're going..

Down,Down,Down,
& the shouting screams they drown,
No sound.
But the shutters crack so loud,
I shout out,
'Cos I think were going under,
we're going..

Down,Down,Down,
& the shouting screams they drown,
No sound.
But the shutters crack so loud,
I shout out,
'Cos I think wer'e 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'
