Slow down for a Second

People go, go and go
yet they don't slow down for a second
zig zag with an unauthorized flow
so fast to check out, not a second to reckon
enjoy the moment, life is to short
the roads aren't meant for sport
seconds can be frozen, broken
stolen, no one likes a showman
we all die someday, why be first?
in someway the roads are cursed
stay in the fast life, fast lane
use your brain, don't risk others pain
road rage cuts deep like a knife
keep in mind that dead husband had a wife
his children paid the price, how nice...
people go, go and go
yet they don't slow down for a second
zig zag with an unauthorized flow
so fast to check out, not a second to reckon
just slow down, slow down for a second
