"The Only Road" as written by Ken Casey, Rick Barton and Matthew Edward Kelly....
How could you choose a path without knowing where you'd end up
Where you came from was a time and place that you had never been
Is this the only road

Can you fake your way through conversation or just simply turn away
Set a course for the desert sun is this the only choice
To live without a choice, this is the only choice we'll know

Cut your teeth and now it's time to show the world that what your made of
Was a travesty that many just call luck
Is this the only road

Now climb aboard the red line train that's headed out of town
Or stick around and just relive your past
You're always running out of wind and you keep saying it's the end
You're always hoping that you'll win, but then you throw in the towel in

    General CommentI think this song is about not letting the world set your path for you but getting out there and making your own destiny. It's about working to make your dreams come true instead of just letting the world trample all over them.

    General CommentI think the pivotal line here is "Now climb aboard the red line train that's headed out of town
    Or stick around and just relive your past". Basically, the song reads as an arguement (either with one's self, or with someone else) about whether to stay where it's safe and comfortable or to break out and risk losing everything for a chance to actually do something with your life.
