lyrics

You were a stranger to me
From the other side
Took my crown threw it in the sea
That ain't the part I had mind

Get no pleasure from the pressure, all that you feed
To walk like every modern man
I see you, filling up your lungs like ammunition to a gun
You take a swing but you can't take me down

I am the driver
You can see in my eyes
Got two hands at the wheel now
You can't rule my mind
I am the driver
It's once in a lifetime
Had me crawl for my place here
Every cloud has a silver line

I want to be free from this place
In your land of mines
You can't pull me from out my head space
I'm switching all of the signs

Standing on my shoulders just to get what you need
For reasons I don't understand
I see you, chasing down my red light as you fall to your knees
Take one last look, coz I'm getting out

I am the driver
You can see in my eyes
Got two hands at the wheel now
You can't rule my mind
I am the driver
It's once in a lifetime
Had me crawl for my place here
Every cloud has a silver line

(Chorus Repeat)

I want to be free from this place
I am the driver
Take one last look
Coz I'm getting out
