Why'd I hide it
Yeah that kind of riot
When you sigh and the silence shrieks louder than verbs and
And the direction the affection takes then
Pressures the perfectionist in-
To layman's ways of saying 'let's be friends'

So the road is fired up though you know the tire's cut
And the stereo it plays 'here we go'
