Three days gone by in the desert
I've broken down on the side of the road
The cops drive by and the dust starts rollin'
Will I ever find my way back home?

Beaten down, I can't stand up now
I see it all flash before my eyes
Beaten down, can I give up?
'Cause it's only three more days 'til I die

I'm highway bound for
Another pretty suicide
I'm highway bound and
I don't know where I'm going

I see a face but I can't decide now
If it's real or just in my mind
I see a face, and it says with a smile
"Welcome to hell, 'cause this is where you'll die"

I'm highway bound for
Another pretty suicide
I'm highway bound now
I can't drive

I'm highway bound for
Another pretty suicide
I'm highway bound and
I don't know where I'm going

I don't know where I'm going

Bleed, let me bleed,
Until there's no more life left, left in me

Bleed, (bleed) let me bleed (bleed)
Now this love is gone, so just bury me
Bleed, (bleed) I said bleed, (bleed)
Now this love is gone, so just bury me

I'm highway bound for
Another pretty suicide
I'm highway bound now
I can't drive

I'm highway bound for
Another pretty suicide
I'm highway bound and
I don't know where I'm going

Bleed, bleed, bleed, bleed

Bleed, (bleed) let me bleed, (bleed)
Until there's no more life left, left in me

Bleed, (bleed) let me bleed (bleed)
Now this love is gone, so just bury me
Bleed, (bleed) I said bleed, (bleed)
Now this love is gone, so just bury me

Bleed, bleed, bleed,
I don't know but I'm going
Bleed, bleed, bleed,
I don't where I'm going
Bleed, bleed, bleed,
I don't know but I'm going

I don't where I'm going
I don't know but I'm going
Down

    General CommentIt's CARS drive by...not cops

    I think this song is about anxiety..and that maybe there is no actual "desert"...the desert is quite possibly a metaphor

    Either that or it;s based on actual events where James got lost or something

    Anywho my favorite part is where the music stops and it's just James' voice all echoey going: "I'm highway bound for..."
