Lyrics: Is it bad I want to be like you?
Do all the things that you do?
Is it bad I want to read your thoughts?
Pretend you’re Kerouac and we’ll get lost
Inside my mind

Over and over and over and over
Someone help me

Stop the traffic in my head
Make the green give in to red
There’s a sizzle and a hum
A cymbal and a drum
It’s obsession
Stop the traffic in my head

Is it bad I want to drink you in?
Salty sweet with every single sip, you burn my lips
Is it bad I want to write your name
A thousand times on everything I own?

Over and over and over and over
Someone help me

Stop the traffic in my head
Tell the green to go to red
There’s a shudder and a shake
Electrostatic waves
It’s obsession
Stop the traffic in my head

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
