Gone away
Gone away
I miss you
Oh when will I see you again?

Sitting here
Sitting here
The car is idle
When you come back
Well get away

Then the alarm went off
Alarms went off
I heard it
I hope to God I don't hear gunshots
And the window pane explodes away
Some violence sings
Pretty sirens in the distance closing in
Blending in
The casualty shrieking
Casually i headed for the highway

Sold you out
Sold you out
Told them all the things that you had done

Sold you out
Sold you out
Tell me all the things that you had done

You were so devout
You were so committed to me
Then i got away

I was right outside
Born to drive away
Ready to split the money equally

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on the album next to On Foreigner.

    Literally it's about being a get-away driver in a robbery. Things go wrong on the inside. Alarms, explosions, casualties, violence. Instead of going inside to help his partner the driver flees and then eventually sells his accomplice out in order to protect himself.

    Metaphorically this song is a reflection on a relationship gone bad. It's easy to point fingers once the relationship has fallen apart, but it takes two to make it work, just like the robbery scenario. I think this song is admitting that the other person put in just as much time and devotion to the relationship. The line, "Sold you out" is a way of saying that when things were at their worst, I was only looking out for myself.
