lyrics

you see noboy tells the chiken that he shouldnt cross the road,
its just a joke that we all tell to keep from getting old
but we’ll grow to that point some day its true,
its not about who you know, its about what you do
(x4)

look both ways or youre gonna get flat
you cross that road and you end up on your back
i dont know where to go, except across the road,
and maybe, im not comin back
(x2)

so start the tale for me,
right from the beginning,
was it me who was the victor
was it me who was winning,
you see i nearly lost my life
just trying to get accross the way
trying to make life a stage
engage a new wave of change
and its in eyes where it lies
the true will and desire,
where you can see the fire
never disguised, and never a liar
so take the end away from me,
i hope i never see it coming,
i will look straight ahead,
disregard traffic oncoming
and if the heaadlights perpendicular
should catch my peripheral
i should hurry my pace
or else life be subliminal
and a new life would be born
for me upon the rough pavement
a museum of scorn,
and a reminder belated
but if you see me let me go,
i was always doomed remember
for i do not have the capacity
to truly surrender
and if you wished me be well,
as you think what you will
you see i always wondered what i would look like as roadkill

look both ways or youre gonna get flat
you cross that road and you end up on your back
i dont know where to go, except across the road,
and maybe, im not comin back
(x2)
