Let that windshield break your fall
We'll count how many times you roll the asphalt
But when you're unconscious girl
Fill that gut up with sorrow
And leave those eyes for catching

And prior to this accident
Your error
Your execution
This plague is now over
You've gone and slept your fever away

Your execution is
Your only way out
This act of treason
Has led the jury to its verdict
Sentenced to death
Let the windshield break your fall
Count how many times you roll on the asphault

Glass rips like a knife to your thigh
Leave your ghost behind
Are you afraid yet
Don't bother to try to open your eyes
Once this is over
Are you afraid yet

Nightfall
The stoplight before your house
The beginning of it all
We'll keep you guessing on the outcome
How come you're scared
Is it maybe cause our hook might catch

Glass rips like a knife to your thigh
Leave your ghost behind
Are you afraid yet
Don't bother to try to open your eyes
Once this is over
Are you afraid yet

This is trial and error
(Are you afraind yet)
(This is trial and error)
(But your mistakes have been made)
This is what you wanted and the jury agrees,
this is your sentence

Glass rips like a knife to your thigh
Leave your ghost behind
Are you afraid yet
Don't bother to try to open your eyes
Once this is over
Are you afraid yet

    General CommentThis song is SO good. I was so impressed when I heard this band a few days ago. They're going to be so HUGE. Victory has a good addition to their family, definately check this band out. This is a very graphic song... car accident going on... prolly not what it's really about though. Well written.

    General Commentthis song always reminds me of when i get grounded.
    "this is what you wanted, and the jury agrees, this is your sentence."
    maybe not what i wanted, but i got it.
    this might actually have something to do with a crime, maybe murder whatever, everythings about murder.
    soo this girl drives away regretting what shes done, so somewhere along the line she tries to apologise to her boyfriend or whatever, but he wont hear of it, so she drives away ever more distressed, crashes her car, and with no sympathy from her boyfriend, he turns her in for her crimes.
    "this is what you wanted and the jury agrees, this is your sentence."
    hmmm doesnt quite fit, but its the only interpretation here.
