Maybe it's a second
Maybe it's a teeny tiny eensy weensey little time
That you don't know where you are
Or where you're going
In a vehicle only you can stop
Capable of killing
Capable of saving
But in that moment either could be reality
Maybe it's a minute
Are you in a neighborhood? On the freeway? Does cruise control determine your pace? What happens when it fails? Will you fail too? And when you wake will it be to a crash or a skid? Will breaking glass make you realize that the cost of your life is many others?
Don't you know how much power you hold?
The lives you made in that car you rode
Praying "please please don't sleep on this turn
"We have to make it"
They never learn
That life is not in their hands
It's in yours
And that at your driving
Will determine their course
