This song in four words: Mom's car accident re-envisioned.

lyrics

We're driving along,
knots crash through our hair.
Our faces twist and turn in ways
that physics can't share.

Sweat beads with plastic.
Sister sit next to me.
Oh Embrace me, oh and brace now.
Oh embrace me, oh embrace now.
Emergency sounds, loud now.

Metal it sings a song
when these lights hit
and shards go round and round.
I will stand right here and talk
'til these words calm you down.
And around, 'round we spun,
suspended in the air.
Life is still, I still remember
the tangles in your hair.

Stuck in the smell
of asphalt too hot.
We push and lean into the curves,
pull back as it stops.
Sweat beads with plastic.
Sister sit next to me.
Oh embrace me, oh embrace now.
Emergency sounds loud now.
Oh embrace me, oh and brace now.
Emergency sounds loud now.

Metal it sings a song. x 4

Hold tight. x 6

Embrace me and brace now.

She's feeling, oh nothing, she wants to keep her head down. x4

Oh down. Oh down. Oh. x 2

Metal it sings a song
when these lights hit
and shards go round and round.
I will stand right here and talk
'til these words calm you down.
And around, 'round we spun,
suspended in the air.
Life is still, I still remember
the tangles in your...
Metal it sings a song
when these lights hit
and shards go round and round.
I will stand right here and talk
'til these words calm you down.
And around, 'round we spun,
suspended in the air.
Life is still, I still remember
the tangles in your hair.

These vast efforts are repaid by the audience with growing fanatical support, both online and at our shows. We move the masses with sweat wherever we play. ... more
