The stars were trippin on a Tuesday night
I didn't know that is was cold
I got so high that the seasons changed
I watched the silver turn to gold

I drank my life
I was chasin it down
It didn't have no place to go
I should've known I woke the devil up
I should've heard the engine groan

The road was shakin but my hands were still
The lights were dancing on their own
I lit the dash I took my sunglasses off
I like to see that fucker glow

Remember after school at the Schuyler Park
Trading in our stories for the dark
In our heads in our own way
Remember Megan with her makeup off
She made us dream
She got us off
It was good that she moved away

I took a right onto Maple Hill
Somebody laughin in the wind
I should've felt the rain on my left hand
I should've heard the devil grin

Lighting came from the other side
I could feel the steel explode
The sound of thunder covered up my eyes
An angel screaming in my nose

The moon was raining down broken glass
The sky was covered up in blood
I didn't know I left the radio on
Until I heard it singing from the mud

Then I saw them standing round this little boy
Pale blue skin in his corduroy
Pumping his life they were holding on
Then I heard the walls as they began to weep
His naked body had gone to sleep
I saw an old woman hit the floor

My head was gone
But my clothes were on
I left my body in the car
I listened hard for the voice of God
I didn't hear nothin at all

It was a sunset like I never seen
I could almost see the end
I tried to reach it
But I blew it away
Then in all turned black again

I was a runner more than half my life
I was a track star back in 95
I was full almost a man
I had a girlfriend back before I died
They peeled her off from my wounded side
I could feel her empty hands
