Oh, avalanche!
You are the number one
natural disaster of Switzerland.

The Swiss put up barriers to keep you out
and build covered roadways to save themselves
but it's no use; you always kill
at least a few skiers a year,
just to remind them to be fearful.
At least a few skiers a year.

A few innocent lives a year.

Oh, avalanche!

    General CommentIts not really that silly...

    Avalanches are an analogy for love. We always hear about the tales of heart break and so many of us put up our defenses against it, yet still, some people always get hurt...

    General CommentI actually laughed out loud at the line "You always kill at least a few skiers a year".
    But I definitely agree; I think it should be "The Swiss put up barriers to keep you out".

    Boomer83, I never even thought of avalanches as an analogy for love, but it makes perfect sense to me.

    General CommentAn avalanche is a huge pile of snow at a rapid pace; snow can be anapology for a cocaine addiction since its popular there.. the roadways and barriers can mean laws and regulations that the swiss have put up to restrict use.
