Track Name: Impact
The car moving, wheels turning,
Roaring, deafening upon the tarmac,
Going through the motions, on a road I have travelled a thousand times,

Blurred vision,
Commotion blurs my mind,
I can’t do anything…

Out of nowhere,
A sound like thunder,
A crash and the bells of glass hitting the street,
Out of nowhere,
A sound like thunder,
A crash and the bells of glass hitting the street,

It was as the wheels stopped turning that I noticed the noise,

The droning, the swelling, the crying of the twisted cars horn,
It replaced the silence where the tyre noise should be,
It’s drowning out,

Get somebody here!
There’s a car in the road with someone inside,

Out of nowhere,
A sound like thunder,
A crash and the bells of glass hitting the street,
Out of nowhere,
A sound like thunder,
A crash and the bells of glass hitting the street,

My heart is racing,
Blood pounding through my ears,
My hands are shaking,
With adrenaline, adrenaline,
My heart is racing,
Blood pounding through my ears,
The panic, the news,
Where are the doctors? Where are the doctors?

The car sits upon the hedge,
There’s one in the road,
I can’t seem to find,
My wits or my words,
Sirens,
Blue and red lights,
A voice cutting through,
The darkening night,
I watch, worry, pace,
Back and forth on the ground,

If you need me,
I am listening,
If you need me,
I am here for you,
(The crunch of metal on metal,
Steel twists and screams,
Glass pours over the ground,
The door clatters with it,
Removed completely)

Out of nowhere,
A sound like thunder,
A crash and the bells of glass hitting the street,
Out of nowhere,
A sound like thunder,
I’m helpless…
