Lyrics

These Nameless Streets

you took Johnny Walker red instead of a flashlight
on your walk down memory lane
and now you wonder why the pain is all that's left for your efforts
and why nothing can dull the shame
of the stain that you left on her white sheets
and the memory of your walk down her street
going anyplace in the world but home
these nameless streets
they don't seem to lead anyplace but back
trying to get out of town
you can't keep your feet so you go back
or you go down

the streets don't have names in this place for a reason
and their numbers don't add up to anything worth repeating
so you turned the car and you left town
thinking you'd be gone for good and you would have been
if the nightmares would have remained on those nameless streets
but they followed when you tried to leave
these nameless streets
they don't seem to lead anyplace but back
trying to get out of town
you can't keep your feet so you go back
or you go down

how far are you willing to go these days? (BRIDGE)
you used to go all the way
but it's a long way down memory lane
and there's no one left to take you back
SOLO on CHORUS

Now johnny walker's left you for dead
and you're stuck down memory lane
with only the nightmares that you carried around
and there is no help to be found in this place
the phones are all dead and there's led in the paint
and you've taken all that you can take
these nameless streets
they don't seem to lead anyplace but back
trying to get out of town
you can't keep your feet so you go back
or you go down
trying to get out of town
