Voices from the past

I can hear voices
 Voices from the past
 But, only when I’m driving
 When I’m driving fast
“It’s the wind”, said the doctor
 “Or a breech in a seal”
 “Go home and put your feet up”
 “Or go out for a meal”
So, I took the doctor’s advice
 And intended to go home
 I buckled up my seatbelt
 Switched off my mobile phone
Then I turned the ignition
 This made the engine roar
 But, as I started driving
 The voices came once more
I could hear the voices
 Couldn’t tell what they were saying
 So, I put my foot down
 The car started swaying
Suddenly, I hear them clearly
 These voices from the past
 They say “climb up from the wreckage”
 “And join us at long last”
