NOTES
Tires

I sold the last jewelry to tourists who didn't have a clue
I locked the door for the last time, the auction: through
We lessened our memory's burden, we hide from the truth
Recessed in the back of our mind, we keep safe the proof

So I hit the road
With tires screaming
So effortlessly
The rearview mirror

Riding at break-neck, I kissed every apex, the locals impressed with my speed
I fight inspiration without hesitation, the wanting outweighing the need
Tell your Mom I said goodbye, that I'll be alright
She can find me hiding from shadows that I see at night

So I hit the road
With tires screaming

You have a voice
This was your choice
In the end, it'll break you and you'll see
It's hard to be right
And demonstrate might
In the end, it broke me

And I hit the road
With tires screaming
