Driving Gallatin Pike in the middle of the night
And I don’t know which way to turn
Pawn shops and strip malls, a mirror of my life
I think of the forests I’ve burned
The hearts I’ve paved over
The men that I’ve spurned
And impossible daylight floods parking lots where
I’m haunted by so many lessons unlearned

A ghost town veneer of the plans I held dear
Is this what my life’s become?
Gallatin Pike in the middle of the night

Around me are places I’ve laid down at night
And I don’t even know what they’re named
Too tired for thinking about what’s really right
My rain-spitting tires get blamed
For the hearts I’ve paved over
Where concrete lays claim
And tomorrow’s reflected on both sides for miles
In the twisting arms of neon flame

Ghost town veneer of the plans I held dear
Is this what my life’s become?
Gallatin Pike in the middle of the night

What if I can’t get off?
What if this is my end?
Dead on the pavement as the road softly bends
With Title Loans’ my witness
And Dollar Store friends?

But as soon as I turn off I see front porches and lawns
I guess life is bigger than the sins of its pawns
The fears we hold on to don’t hold up for long
And Gallatin Pike’s just the name of this song
Isn’t it nice to find out, that sometimes we’re wrong?
