lyrics

You gotta press the button a certain way
To get the windows to roll down and even then it may
Not work at all

Got pulled over for a headlight out
Couldn't even roll the window down I got
A written warning
He said it might be time to go car shopping

Engine overheating when I drive
Replaced the radiator last July
Tires with wires showing through
They told me I'm living on borrowed time

The rear left window started slipping down
So I super glued it shut just before the winter came around

Me and my silver Century
Mostly broken
But we keep on going

Me and my silver Century
We're mostly broken
But we keep on going
Yeah we keep on going

I already spent a lot fixing it
That new fuel pump cost me quite a bit
It's running for now
Gonna drive it right into the ground

The CD player only works when it wants
The bass notes rattle and it skips a lot
I'm trying to gather my scattered thoughts
But always coming to a four-way stop

I caught myself a break last January
Then the river froze over and it's been scary
Been wondering for a while
If I've just got too many miles

Me and my silver Century
Mostly broken
But we keep on going

Me and my silver Century
We're mostly broken
But we keep on going
Yeah we keep on going

The ashtray I used to charge my phone
Broke off during load-in a year ago
I tried to fix it
Got frustrated and said skip it

I heard a sound that wasn't too good
Each time I hit a bump in the neighborhood
Got underneath and I could tell
The strut broke straight through the rusted wheel well

But it's been that way for two years now
Through the shows and the tours and still somehow
She goes she goes
And how she does nobody knows

Me and my silver Century
Mostly broken
But we keep on going

Me and my silver Century
We're mostly broken
But we keep on going
Yeah we keep on going
