  • I was born on the highway
    In a train wreck
    With a heart that was beating
    Outta my chest

    So now I follow it around the world
    I can't keep up if I don't get it soon
    I know I'll bleed until I drop

    'Cause I want it all
    I can't get enough
    'Cause I want it all
    I can't get enough

    There's a darkness and a hollow
    On the highway
    Every cross on the roadside
    Tells a story

    So now I follow it around the world
    I can't keep up
    The story never ends as long as we have
    Blood and cuts

    'Cause I want it all
    I can't get enough
    'Cause I want it all
    I can't get enough

    Can't get enough
    I can't get enough

    It ran off the track, 11/79, while the immigrants slept
    There wasn't much time
    The mayor came calling and got 'em outta bed
    They packed up their families and headed up wind

    A poison cloud, a flaming sky
    Two hundred thousand people and no one died
    And all before the pocket dial
    Yeah

    I keep searching and searching
    I keep searching and searching

    Now I'm stranded, tied on the tracks
    There's no hero, there's no villain
    There's nobody I can blame, the story's still the same
    I'm never satisfied
    It's a problem with my brain

    I keep searching and searching
    I keep searching and searching

    'Cause I want it all
    I can't get enough
    'Cause I want it all
    I can't get enough

    Can't get enough
    I can't get enough
    Can't get enough
    I can't get enough
    Can't get enough
    I can't get enough
    Can't get enough
    I can't get enough Writer/s: Dave Sardy, Jesse Keeler, Sebastien Grainger
