Some travelers like to take the highways Where they can speed along without a care Some like a leisure stroll down a lovely, tree-lined thoroughfare But me, I got this thing about earning what I got And I’ve learned you get a longer way by learning where to stop And venturing too far from home never did extend my reach So I’ll take dead end streets I’ll take dead end streets Some need to see their destination And GPS to know the route is clear Some fly the friendly skies to escape this hostile atmosphere But me, I'm not afraid cause there ain't nothing I ain't seen And I'm proud that I can cut my path without tiny screen And running out of road made me learn to use my feet Me, I got this thing about earning what I got And Me, I'm not afraid cause there ain't nothing I ain't seen And I’ve learned you get a longer way by learning where to stop And I'm proud that I can cut my path without a tiny screen So I'll take dead end streets I'll take dead end streets I'll take dead end streets

The Break 04:28
Trusting’s an easy decision when closing your eyes and drowning your vision in a desperate attempt to find something true but some truth might not be what’s expected and closed eyes might be truth neglected and before you know, you don’t even know you so I made a break ‘cause I hated the man that I thought that I was geography never solved nothin, but coming home sometimes does So it was Vision is so damn confusing So clear, yet so prone to illusion You see what you see to feel like you want to But truth feels like cuts with a blade When you know the mistakes that you made And the paper-thin veils that you couldn’t see through so I made a break ‘cause I hated the man that I thought that I was geography never solved nothin, but coming home sometimes does So it was

Survivable 03:51
You make me laugh, I make you bend down to kiss me but I already wonder why you’d try to dismiss me Get into to me and I’ll eventually get used to you Every Friday night you hold me so tender but there’ll come a time I’m gonna have to surrender expose my wounds and have some faith you can make them new, but Is it survivable to take you by the hand Is it survivable to make you my man Surviving falling in love is something I think I could do But could I survive the day you say we're through Maybe you could try do less to get attached to like calling me the lost sock you are the match to and if you wanna stay you should not look at me that way Cause give me one too many reasons to miss you And it won’t be you, it might be me who dismissed you Or you can go the easy way and promise me you’ll stay and Is it survivable to take you by the hand Is it survivable to make you my man Surviving falling in love is something I think I could do But could I survive the day you say we're through could I survive the mystery and erasing one more history and resisting every urge to talk about it cause I’ve taken my last breath before and there’s no reviving me no more and if it just might kill me, I just might live without it So is it survivable to take you by the hand is it survivable?

I know a girl who's a little bit blown away I know a girl who's a little bit blown away She has a breakdown every night and wakes up with the morning light Just so she can work a longer day I know a guy who's in love with jealousy I know a guy who's in love with jealousy He keeps track of where she's been and what she's going dancing in I'm surprised she don't just up and leave I know a girl who's mean to her boyfriend I know a girl who's mean to her boyfriend She won't even let him sing the songs that he has been writing He just stays because she pays the rent

I listened to XPN through Philly and YEP through Pittsburgh On my way to the shores of the largest natural lake in the State I lived through boy bands and I lived through disco I thank the Lord the soundtrack to my life turned out so great and Pennsylvania’s rolling hills and- growing fields feed me Her evening sky this fourth of July frees me From the things that keep me down in another town And no matter where I go, I’m always coming home It’s been two years now and I swear I plan to call her The earth beneath my wheels reminds me of the plans we made I blast the music and try not to think about her The scenery speeds me behind like I left her that day, but Home is where I always heard the heart is Home, I haven’t cared but now I’m looking for it Home, I feel the strength of where I’ve been my best Home, I finally think I can begin again cause Pennsylvania’s rolling hills and- growing fields feed me Her evening sky this fourth of July frees me From the things that keep me down in another town And no matter where I go, I’m always coming And no matter where I go, I’m coming home
