There was an accident
They lost another
man, whoah
man, whoah


He lived on your block
And you saw him every day
He was on his
way, whoah
way, no


--"Came back here to talk to you, I didn't want to try, but ya know."
--"Well, I'm glad ya did. I can't take it. I uh, keep thinking about that dead trooper. I keep trying to tell myself that it was an accident, that it wasn't my fault, but I can't make it stick"
--"Look, the guy took a shot atcha, didn't he? He had it comin'"
--"Yeah, but I keep seein' the car down in the water, 40 feet down and him in it. I don't even know what he looked like, maybe he had a wife, maybe he had a kid—"
--"Look, what's done is done. But uh, that ain't what I came back to talk to you about. This ain't gonna be easy for me, kid. You gotta know...I lied to you........[????]"
[music comes back in here, the conversation gets garbled]
--"I like you, we hit it off fine, now I'm gonna do you the biggest favor of your life. I want you to get out of here. I want you to get out of here fast. Here, stuff it all in your pockets. And then get goin' and keep on goin'"
