lyrics

Roadkill happens on the road
In the forest, in the fog,
Roadkill happens while you dream
Wide awake behind the wheel.

You tried to brake but you were slow;
If you only could have known
That those pretty lights were eyes;
Foresight dumb, in hindsight wise.

Don’t you wish it were not true?
Doesn’t matter if you do,
Conscience bites while headlights weep
Bloody tears of what you’ve killed.

Roadkill screams its insides out,
Makes you wish you had a gun,
Makes you wish you’d wisely stayed
In the city far away.

Roadkill wails and roadkill howls –
Its own fault it is so soft,
Stone bites back and so does tree,
Roadkill gives in easily.

Would have died soon anyway,
Would have been such easy prey,
Guided by a stupid head
Either way it’d soon be dead.

So will you one day, you think –
A bad-luck turn, a longer blink.
Some go young and some grow old –
For us all it ends, this road.

Life goes on beyond the bend,
Roadkill happens now and then,
Little secret let it be:
I won’t tell you, you won’t tell me.

Roadkill happens on the road
In the forest, in the fog,
Roadkill happens while you dream
Wide awake behind the wheel.
