I hope you brought your clever eyes
You better fill it up,
We're driving 'til the sun gets tired
Forget about the worrying,
It don't concern us anymore
When it comes down to it,
Nothing's gonna stop us with the pedal at the floor

Labeled as a sucker in the new generation
Doesn't even matter 'cause we like it better singing

Hey, we're doing what we wanted
I'll take my life where I'm supposed to
Hey, we're living like we ought to
I'll take my life where I'm supposed to

We're out to get what we desire
But they think it's so bizarre
And that it's adding to the fire
We're finding out a better way
And learning more than we were told of before
Don't believe in what they're saying
'Cause the fame is really what they're coming for

Labeled as a sucker in the new generation
Doesn't even matter 'cause we like it better singing

Hey, we're doing what we wanted
I'll take my life where I'm supposed to
Hey, we're living like we ought to
I'll take my life where I'm supposed to

Maybe we'll learn a bit
Don't need advice when I can live it out, live it out
And the lines on the road are only to escape (from it)

Hey, we're doing what we wanted
I'll take my life where I'm supposed to
Hey, we're living like we ought to
I'll take my life where I'm supposed to

Living like we're supposed to
Living like we're supposed to
Hey, like we're supposed to
Hey, like we're supposed to

    General Comment'And the lines on the road are only to escape (from it)'
    i hear it as 'and the lines on the road are only the escape from' or something like that. then the next line is 'only to escape'
    apologies if you got them straight from the cd jacket :\ it's just been sounding weird to me for a while.

    General CommentSounds like it's about some college age kids who moved out of their parent's house and they are doing whatever they want and are learning things about the world that their parents never told them.
