When the end of the end finally came
Your name was on the list
But not for what you did
A terrible accident

When the people you love were destined to stray
You never thought to say
Why do you cause
Terrible accidents

By and by, from above, a sword of flame
To and fro it came to smite
And pound to dust
Heaven-born love is blind

Let’s take it back in time and down south
Where you take, with all due respect
(For which none is)
You take your car and run him down

And when they come in their craft
They find a man half driven mad
By the sound of burning

And you find from the evermore
Steel-tossed arcs of gore
Your eyes averting

And they say look at what we’ve done
But sick, you say where
Are we really going

And they say look, the fire is clean
But waking up from your dream
You say this is an accident

A terrible accident
