It's pouring again out on the Cumberland plains
It’s grey skies and I'm out here driving just tryin’ to get away
These old mountain roads, will take you from home
If you don't want to stay
I used to feel like a lie until I realized
That chasing skies is the American way

Throw your bags in the back of the Cadillac
We're gonna leave this town
Though we're probably gonna come back around
It's hard to just be when you want to just be free
Maybe the only time we're at home is when we're out on the road

Black cats play under the amber streetlight
And there’s a Bloodblue stain on my whole damn night
No silver horn for the distance
Only a fever come Christmas
So sink it fast and sink it there
I’ve got a love affair with love affairs

Getting kinda’ blasted at 4:00pm thinking about it again
Wondering what I should have done different
Was it my fault?
Or was it just not meant to be at all?

Rivers on the sides of streets as the weatherstripping slowly leaks
Distant mountains disappear and I’m left here
Again, again, again I’ve tried to be some better guy
But when I give the benefit of the doubt it never seems to work out

And it’s the three little dots on your phone, that let you know
I’m thinking and writing about how I’m not scared to end up alone
But you probably know it’s pride act
And I don’t know if I can change that
So can you tell me do I ever sound chill enough?
Do I ever sound like I really don’t give a fuck?
And I’m not trying to set a somber tone
It’s just some shit I think about while I'm alone
