Light starts in a dark place
The story of a car chase
And I’ve become the criminal
And fleeing from this scene
And being caught in a bad dream
The truth becomes the unthinkable (yeah)

I’m on the brink of disaster
Starin’ down the consequences
So brake hard we’ll be better
Tonight I’ll do what it takes to fail
Goin’ there only faster
Jumping down and so it is in gear
But the fact of the matter
We’re out of control asleep at the wheel
Asleep at the wheel
We’re out of control asleep at the wheel

Night falls with no grace
I said I can do anything
But I can do anything wrong
And the burning speed
The rate he says is catching up to me
But I’m already gone

I’m on the brink of disaster
Starin’ down the consequences
So brake hard we’ll be better
Tonight I’ll do what it takes to fail
Goin’ there only faster
Jumping down and so it is in gear
But the fact of the matter
We’re out of control asleep at the wheel
Asleep at the wheel

Tearin’ it down to open up the highway
We’re looking for an exit
No pretending
Speeding out and around with a silvering smash
Starin’ at a car crash ohohohoh
The chase is ending

I’m on the brink of disaster
Starin’ down the consequences
So break hard we’ll be better
Tonight I’ll do what it takes to fail
I’m goin’ there only faster
Jumping down and so it is in gear
But the fact of the matter
The end is coming

I’m on the brink of disaster
Starin’ down the consequences
So break hard we’ll be better
We’re out of control asleep at the wheel
Asleep at the wheel
Asleep at the wheel
Asleep at the wheel
We’re out of control asleep at the wheel

    I think that originally the person singing the song got into a situation but it turned into something way bigger and they want to get out of it but the know it will be disastrous if they do. At the end they have finally made the decision to just do what it takes
