sirens ring out over the dark freeway
familiar music faintly plays
Twelve o'clock, I gotta rock
through the mangled metal
There's a truck ahead
of a terrible horrific accident
lights starin' at my eyes
that happened in a split second
Oh my God
the passing cars ignore and
no time to turn
the people in them pretend but
I got to laugh
the horror won’t escape
'cause I know I'm gonna die
their memories
Why
