I'm needing lest restraint before
I'm needing to hit the lights and close the door
I'm fine, I'm fine cause I'm

Dripping in this strange design
None is yours and far less mine
Hold the wheel, read the sign
Keep the tires off the line
Just relax, you're doing fine
Swimming in this real thing I call life
Can I bring a few companions on this ride?

I'm feeling, my heart's not beating anymore
I'm feeling. it's alright, this happened once before
I'm fine, I'm fine cause I'm

    General CommentTrey explained the song in 2010 in a solo show. Its about the strange feeling he got when he was about to become a dad for the first time. Its about not knowing what the hell he was doing and just trying his best to keep the car on the road and be the best dad he could, one day at a time. This song speaks to me hard. All of us dads know that feeling. How the hell are we going to do this? hold the wheel, read the signs, keep the tires off the lines, just relax, youre doing fine, swimming in this real thing, i call life. Can i bringggg a few companions on this ride.
