Lyrics

ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL

 

Got tired of holding the cradle

Wept like a babe, wanted the ground to be stable

Cos you’re hot stuff and you can’t afford to spill on the ground

 

We fortified

Secured all the lines

Gave our phones juice

‘Cause what’s the point of anything if you can’t prove

to the many humans scrolling that it ever really happened?

 

Chorus

I saw him run into the lightening

Now I said it aloud and that makes it real

And I’m close to deciphering

How the guy survived as it’s clear he was asleep at the wheel

 

Verse

Hear you me, it’s a hidden affliction

But you know it’s okay ‘cause everyone has this addiction

To the same kinds of neon signs

An electric storm

 

I’ll be notified when I turn forty-five

That my mother is hanging on for dear life

Can’t talk, can’t move any parts save her fingers

And Lord knows she can type – ttttt typettttt typettttt typettttt type

 

Chorus

I saw him run into the lightening

Now I said it aloud and that makes it real

And I’m close to deciphering

How the guy survived as it’s clear he was asleep at the wheel
