headlights stab into the night sky
hands gripping tight to the wheel - knuckles white
approaching a figure in the headlights
where are you headed get in we'll be on our way

i'll engage the conversation like i care
to set your fragile mind at ease
then tune you out like the radio
songs fading in and out, hissing dead melodies
hitchhiker roadside execution

midnight stranger
come and take a ride with me
in all my misery i would love some company
this long and winding road isn't safe for anyone
now focus all your fear on the barrel of my gun

we are now experiencing technical difficulties

calm down, close your eyes
it was all a bad dream
now go back to sleep

standing over your dead body
smiling at you
staring at you

allow me to introduce myself
i'm the man you've been looking for
the front page news
your cold blooded killer

midnight stranger
come and take a ride with me
in all my misery i would love some company
this long and winding road isn't safe for anyone
now focus all your fear on the barrel of my gun

midnight stranger
nothing can save you now
beneath the pale starlight
i'll take you out of this world
lone hitchhiker i'll paint the highway with your blood
in the morning light no one will recognize you

    General Comment"we are now experiencing technical difficulties" hahaha. Love this part. It's the most frantic song on the cd but not so much kitsch.
