Step Out of the Car

Album: Cold Still (2011)
  • Step out of the car
    Inner-city action
    It's already won
    It's already won

    Charges bring a swarm
    To rumors of corruption
    It's already war
    It's already war

    And I'm looking for you
    So surrender to me
    In this storm
    It's hard to see
    There's a thin
    line between
    Love and hate
    Love and hate

    Step out of the car
    Acts of desperation
    Leave you in a mess
    Leave you in a mess

    Americana's glow
    Is gone without a place to go
    It's already war
    It's already war

    And I'm looking for you
    So surrender to me
    In this storm
    It's hard to see
    There's a thin
    line between
    Love and hate
    Love and hate

    Voices winning me instead
    Undercover in my head
    Voices winning me instead
    Triggers pointed at my head

    Step out of the car
    Step out of the car
    Step out of the car
    Step out of the car Writer/s: ADAM HARRISON, NATHAN NICHOLSON, PIERS JOHN TOWLER HEWITT, TODD HOWE

  • Justin from Roseville, CaI would have assumed Step Out Of The Car was about America's current troubles. "Americana's glow is gone without a place to go. It's already war..." Nevertheless, this song has grown on me. Although I feel the album as a whole is good, this is definitely one of my favorites. I love the bridge, as well. And the video is equally as great... it's quite simple, but intriguing.
