Head down
Are we there yet?
And the drive always seems so much shorter the way home
Eyes wide open but barely awake
Do you think that it would have been better?
Do you think?

And maybe we would be asking the same thing
And on the other hand, maybe it wouldn't hurt to see a few different faces for a change

You know, so why don't you say so and slow down right now
'Cause we just stand here saying nothing
Going nowhere
So what do we know?

At a faster pace
It seemed more compelling
I guess that's what they sold us on
Is this what we wanted back when we started?
We're right back where we started
Is this what we wanted?
We're right back where we were

    General CommentEvery time I hear this song it brings back this one distinct memory...I get so teary. But I'm also a complete bimbo on the other hand because I thought this song was by this band Sunday Drive...original name of The Starting Line. So I guess I'm just dumb. =(

    General CommentI knew it was by Counterfit, cuz I know the guy in the band, but the bad thing is that on Kazaa everyone labels it as The Starting Line because the title "From Finish To Starting Line".

    General Commentdid anyone see them late last year when they played with Superdrag at the Epicenter? i was surprised because there was barely anyone at that show. like less than 50 people. great show none the less though.
