Soberly, I raise my head
to beg you for
one thin slice of bread
since on the table
a dirty dish holds the residue
of someone else’s wish
 
And there’s nothing left
nothing left for me
No there’s nothing left
nothing left for me
 
Hours later, you lie there still
watching more headlights
glide above the window sill
'cause though your mind
fights back desperately
each new passing car
stirs the same old memory
 
So there’s nothing left
nothing left for me
No there’s nothing left
nothing left for me

Thanks for listening, Alexis. Your assessment is right on the money (http://asirt.org/initiatives/informing-road-users/road-safety-facts/road-crash-statistics).
