We’re rushing to red lights
On sugar dusted roads
We rush toward our death
Shouldering heavy, empty loads

But if my mind is made up right
My shoes are tied on tight
I won’t be stopping every time
I come to a red light

Cause the light outgrows the dark
The fire sends out it’s spark
Trees send out their roots
And a man woos with his remark

Everyone wants to make history
Everything wants to spread it’s seed
The ultimate honour when I leave
Is knowing my spark will outlive me

Cause everything expires
Nothing escapes time
But sparks will fly into the sky
And light some new fires

I gotta be the first in line
Even to stand still
I gotta melt the ice on the road
Before it naturally will.

Cause I gotta drive real fast
And rush to every halt
So dust the road with sugar too
But don’t forget the salt.
