Ear splitting schreeches,
A thunderous clash.
Life slowly dwindling..
death coming too fast...

Metal on Metal.
Metal to Road.
Drunk to Sober.
Hot to Cold...

Blood stained hands
Crushed and shattered bones.
Shards of thick glasses
Pain saturated moans.

Metal On Metal
Metal To Road.
Drunk To Sober
Hot to Cold.

Death against Life.
Locked viciously in battle.
sixteen cans of beer
and a baby bottle.

Metal On Metal
Metal To Road.
Drunk To Sober
Hot to Cold.

Sirens blaring.
Inhaling Gasoline.
Lukewarm alchohol..
No longer in my viens.

Metal On Metal
Metal To Road.
Drunk To Sober
Hot to Cold.

Gripped by an arm,
One point for Life.
But the two for Death....
...were my child and wife...

Metal On Metal
Metal To Road.
Drunk To Sober
Hot to Cold.

Chilled by the cold wind...
Ensuring death was gone...
Life stood next to me...
Leaving me Lukewarm.

Metal On Metal
Metal To Road.
Drunk To Sober
Hot to Cold...
