"Driving Song" as written by and Brody Dalle Alain Johannes Moschulski....
Caught lust tie a noose around my neck
It's the unexplained
that gets you when you obsess
I believed saying the truth
would change the way that I felt
Lying to God aint easy
when you're already in debt

So long, so long my friend
We'll never meet again
I tried so hard to stay
It's too late, it's too late for me

If all the love in this world isn't enough
Where do you go? Who do you trust?
I find myself wrapped in
the arms of emptiness
I can't stop running away
Can't find a place to exist

So long, so long my friend
We'll never meet again
I tried so hard to stay
It's too late, it's too late for me

    Song Meaningthis song is about saying goodbye to the one person she really loves and this one person really cares about her but she thinks its to late when the reality is its never too late... heres my take on it...

    Caught lust tie a noose around my neck (shes so in love with someone, that it makes here want to die)
    It's the unexplained
    that gets you when you obsess(she always thinks of this person)
    I believed saying the truth
    would change the way that I felt(no matter what happens the love wont fadeaway)
    Lying to God aint easy
    when you're already in debt(when she battles with religion and love, thinks the way she feels for this person is wrong)

    ok whatever good song...

    General CommentI think this song is about coming to terms with falling in love with someone else, (caught lust) knowing it's bad news (being married at the time. Hence: tie a noose around my neck) Her saying "I believed saying the truth would change the way that I felt" meaning saying the fact she was married would hopefully make her forget about how she felt about the new guy. The lying to God part is about how she says to herself she will get over it despite knowing she won't. "I tried so hard to stay. It's too late for me" means she knows it's the end of her relationship and it's her fault but she still did her best to mend things. In the second verse she's expressing how she received so much love from her current husband but she feels like it's not enough despite it being his all and all she wants to do is run to someone else.
