Late in the summer children run without clothes
Chill of the winter not far down the road
And in the windows are silhouettes of husbands and wives
Watching in silence till the evening arrives
And there all around insects scream in the trees
The promise of rain can be heard on the breeze

Oh lord we break so easy
Oh lord, oh lord, we shatter like glass

The headlights glow and the sky will soon be black
The freeway riders are rolling and heading back
They're heading back home

A dark haired woman is driving the roads
Breathing deeply she don't mind being alone
Her shaking hands holding fast to the wheel
She sees things and knows they ain't real

Oh lord we break so easy
Oh lord we shatter like glass

There is a song that bleeds through the night
Bouncing off stars and the satellites
I spend my nights in the reservoir
Saying prayers for all the passing cars

    General CommentI believe this song is about solitude. Great lyrics, really touching.

    General Commenti think the song is about a car crash and how fragile life is, coping with the death of a friend or loved one, and hoping that no one else has to go through that silence and solitude. it's about growing from the care free child playing near the cars to the haunted adult praying for the safety of drivers and bystanders.
