Please don't chase me anymore,
Nearly forgot just what I'm running for,
I meant no harm,
My gas pedal is to the floor;
People watch this on TV,
Never thought that this could happen to me,
I can't stop now and it still seems like a dream,
Never thought I'd hurt someone,
Now I see you clutching your gun,
You're playing for keeps,
There's no place left to run,
I had to make a choice I made it,
If I had another chance I'd take it,
I've got to find a way to make a getaway,
Today my future looked so bright,
All it took was one red light,
The sirens were close behind,
My brain said fight or flight,
So I ran from my mistake,
Not the best choice I could make,
The helicopter reminds me
That this time there' s no lucky break,
I always did things my own way,
Never cared what the experts say,
I thought they were so full of shit,
I guess it's time to pay,
I always dreamed I'd have it all,
Never thought I'd take the fall,
And now I've run out of chances
And all I can see is the wall

    General CommentI heard this song on the ride home from the warped tour and i fell in love with it. This song rules and if you guys like this band you should check out Pulley(same singer).

    General CommentThis is the song about their ex-guitarist who died of an enlarded heart...he knew it for 10 years but never told anyone(not even the members) and died 10 years after knowing it...exactly to the point where they sing : i always did things my own way, never cared what the experts say, I thought they were so full of shit, i guess it's time to pay, i always dreamed i'd have it all, never thought i'd take the fall, and now i've run out of chances and all i can see is the wall
    This is one of the deepest and greatest song I've heard in my whole life!
