It’s a ghost town baby. It will drive you crazy when you rely on all your friends.
I’ve seen people sucked in.
There’s no way to stop them from becoming walking dead.
You’re still living, but barely breathing. Get out while you can.

Just drive away ‘cause no one here will save you.
Drive away and don’t look back. You’re gone.

It’s a ghost town sister.
I’ve seen your dreams wither, and that’s what’s giving me the creeps.
Spent your whole life waiting in a town that’s fading into never ending sleep.

You’re still breathing, barely breathing. Get out while you can.


Just drive away ‘cause no one here will save you.
Drive away and don’t look back.
Just drive away ‘cause nothing here will change you.
Drive away and don’t look back.

You say, “We’re so alone here. We drink all alone here.
Nobody feels like we feel like we do.
We’re all alone here. We die all alone here.
No one, yeah nobody feels like we do, like we do.”

Just drive away ‘cause no one here will save you.
Drive away and don’t look back.
Just drive away ‘cause no one here will save you.
Drive away and don’t look back.
Just drive away ‘cause nothing here will change you.
Drive away and don’t look back.

You’re still breathing, barely breathing. Get out while you can.

    General Commenti think its pretty obvious that the song is about one of those towns that people grow up in and never do much with there lives, and he's telling the girl to get up and get out and start a new life for herself before she gets sucked in.

    General CommentThis song was written about my friend. She did leave her small town. She got in her car and drove away.
