Just keep your hands on the wheel.
Don't close your eyes.
And travel safely 'til we arrive.

Can't you see this is a science wrapped up in a game?
A secret kept under a household name.
We wait for honest words to fall on honest ears and we are...

All alone and desperate.
All together, but separate.

Send a message home.
Singing, "We don't smile through weary bones."
On the wheel tonight.
Send one back to me.
Singing, "You are proud of what you sing,"
'Cause I'm swaying on the line.

Don't let these empty pockets get to you.
We've made a choice.
I'm overdrawn, tired, and worn, but still standing.

All alone and desperate.
All together but separate...as we lay on the floor.

Message home.
Singing, "We don't smile through weary bones."
On the wheel tonight.
Send one back to me.
Singing, "You are proud of what you sing,"
'Cause I'm swaying on the line.

Don't close your eyes.

All we know is all we know is on and on.

Message home, we are almost home.
On the wheel tonight. Almost home.
Send one back to me. Call when you're wasted.
If you call I will listen.
'Cause I'm swaying on the line.

All alone and desperate.
Don't close your eyes.
All together, but separate.
