This song is to remind myself, more than anyone, that everyday is a new opportunity; but the engine is running and fuel is finite.

About the song
I wanted to write something upbeat and fun and this is what came out. Time is ticking, the engine is running: let's go somewhere. There are 2 acoustic guitars, electric guitar and live bass, and 6 backing vocals to a 2 bar drum loop. I used Voxengo's 'Boogex' guitar-amp simulator for the first time on this (late June 05), and really enjoyed the flexibility. I re-did the lead vocal and added some extra electric guitar and backing vocals in late July 05.
Lyrics
Chorus
Life is an open road,
Fill her up and foot to the floor.
Life is a one way street,
There's no going back for more.

Verse 1
Take the wheel and make the bends,
Watch the winds and mind the wends,
You can sleep at journey's end,
Save the back seat for your friends -
It's too easy to overload, cos life is an open road.

Verse 2
Take the Bible, Torah and Koran,
They will tell you about the man,
One is full of metal bands;
Bring home the word from dark and distant lands,
And don't let your mind get closed, life is an open road.

Chorus
Life is an open road,
Fill her up and foot to the floor.
Life is a one way street,
There's no going back for more.

Verse 3
With the top down and the radio up
Catch the rain in a paper cup.
Hear the wise men, heed the Bard,
Don't forget your credit card -
Make up your own highway code, life is an open road.

Middle 8
When you're finally running out of gas
You could join the Sunday drivers,
Or burn it up in one last smash,
Either way there's no survivors
At the end of this open road -
Life is an open road...

Chorus
Life is an open road,
Fill her up and foot to the floor.
Life is a one way street,
There's no going back for more,
There's no going back for more,
At the end of this open road.
