All I’m feeling in the empty hollow wind
Is the kiss of the air
And all I’m thinking in this moment of caress
It’s not a bad way to end
My life did not flash right before my eyes
It wasn’t that clear at all

Speeding out the frame now twists away
As my head hits the ground
One quick second took it all away
The last of anything I had

All I notice laying on the road
The sun is hot but the wind is cold
As I sit up I look straight to my left
To see the pieces of this mess
It’s just one lesson that everybody learns
Soon enough it’s your turn

To all my Brothers with wheels on the road
Let em’ ride let em’ roll
