There’s Been a Terrible Accident

There’s been a terrible accident
I don’t think I will get any sleep tonight
I close my eyes and all I see is the accident

Yeah I’m a survivor
Is that supposed to sound glamourous
That I survived where you have died?
Lacerations and broken limbs
An attitude that’s indicative
Of one who remains barely alive

This life is dangerous
These times are terrible
Keep your head and arms inside this ride
Bring yourself close to me
The only shelter here
I’ll be the place for you to hide
