The freeway curves upward
Can't see the top
So steep you'll have to crawl
Against the wind, beating to and fro
So give it all you got
Face against the concrete
Just one inch closer and the gates are in reach

They say it's easy if you try, but I won't try...
I'd rather watch all you maggots turn into flies

They say it's easy if you try, but I won't try...
I'd rather watch all you maggots as you turn into flies
Watch all you maggots as you turn into flies

I can see clearly now
The whole gate is a jaw
Eighty feet unhinged into the funnel above
Instead of teeth sticking out,
There's faces frozen in ice
They mouth "betrayer" while
Their eyes turn black
I wanna scream it right back
But I've got no tongue
'Cause all they fed me was poison
All that they taught split my mouth in half
And in the center there's a hole
That they took from my heart
And now it's sucking me down
And I'm falling and falling and falling...

They say it's easy if you try, but I won't try

This isn't me, this isn't 5 AM
My face is not against the concrete
While the headlights zoom in
And I don't hear a skull crack
As I'm floating away
I don't know who that is
Lying smashed in the Southbound lanes
