lyrics

Well, I was texting and driving at the same time
This modern way of sinning keeps eating my mind
And I don't own a horse, I'm desensitized
I drive with my windows down and the AC high

Hey Mr. BMW
You left your lights on and I don't know what to do
And I know Bruce wrote a song or two
About the luxury of cars but he can have it cause it's overused

So how did we get here?
This sad stolen story
Where everybody's just quiet in their cars?
How did we get here?
This sad stolen story
Where we all know who's running for president
But no one seems to live in present tense

Well, the nostalgics had it right when they first had a plan
To seize the rustic day and make a poem from a man
But we all want to fight, and we all want to win
We all want a reason to start over again

So how did we get here?
This sad stolen story
Where everybody's just quiet in their cars?
How did we get here?
This sad stolen story
Where we all know who's running for president
But they don't seem to live in present tense

We're on the brink of world war three
The radio's convinced us it's overseas
But there's a gun shot in our school yard
Oh, what times are these?
When a drop of water is a crime
We're all holding our breath and staying afloat at the same time
You need a bite, and I need a drink
Can we spare a dime?

So how did we get here this sad stolen story
Where everybody's just quiet in their cars?
Oh how did we get here this sad, stolen story?
Where we only really care who's president
And no one heard what these words meant
I can't seem to live in present tense...
