"Yes, I was drunk" as written by Sam Mctrusty, Ross Gavin Mcnae, Craig Ernest Kneale and Barry Nicholas Mckenna....
Yes, I was drunk,
You'd be the same
The windows were bending,
and decorated with rain

I couldn't speak,
'Cause my thinking was stunned
I picked up the keys,
you forced me to run.

Nothing could stop me leaving
the impulse runs through my blood
And I hope you live for your freedom,
I hope you enjoy the lust

And I got in the car,
And put her in to first.

Not stopping for lights,
'Cause my vision was blurred
One hand on the wheel,
the other open and cut

You know I still have to tow,
You know I wanted to stay
The car in front
Kept tapping on-off the breaks

Nothing could stop me leaving
The impulse runs through my blood
I hope you live for your freedom
I hope you enjoy the lust

So I let go,
So I let go,
Ignoring the lights, that mark out the road

And I wanted to meet the one,
The one with the healthy glow
So I let go,
You made me let go

I think I just needed a rush, needed a rush.

Nothing could stop me speeding
Or missing that bend in the road
A 90 head-on collision
Is how I lost control

So I let go,
So I let go
Ignoring the lights, that mark out the road

Wanted to meet the one,
The one with the healthy glow
So I let go,
You made me let go

I think I just needed a rush, needed a rush.

    General Commentfrom an interview: "A confession. The song title says it all. A fictional story I made up and put over a building piece of music that climaxes with tragedy and a wall of guitars." pretty obvious meaning really. It's a beautiful song :)

    General CommentI'm almost sure it's "Ignoring the lines" rather than "ignoring the lights". They sound almost identical with his accent, but it sounds much more like "lines" to me, and it makes more sense.

    General Commentpretty sure this song is a bout drunk driving, he had a fight and started drinking. he grabbed his keys and drove and had a accident. 'And I wanted to meet the one,
    The one with the healthy glow' thats an angel or something thats bringing him to heaven
