fragile stem asleep at the stoplight again red dressed in red drenched in red spreading red ever red fragile stem veering for control again change lanes explain how strain defers the impact of speed on on past gone gone gone past on fragile stem made your own road again scars crash and glass made you laugh you'd show it off to your friends fragile stem lay down your arms and then steer into the headlights like the dead light of the last sun you'll see steering into headlights and your gone

    General Commentmy second favorite song about a car wreck (in the kingdom #19 wins). I like the 'red dressed in red drenched in red spreading red' line.

    General CommentAnother good car wreck song is "Motorist" by Jawbox.

    Any idea why this is called "Walken's Syndrome". Is there some connection here to Christopher Walken?

    General CommentThis song is a tribute to Christopher Walkjen's character in Annie Hall (Director: Woody Allen) who fantasizes about crashing his car into another.

    Not sure if it's an actual condition, but I adore this song as a elegy for a character who wants to die and ina way ('gone, gone, gone') is already dead. Fugazi- the only real contender for 'greatest band ever'.
