Crash

  • Lyrics
  • SafetySuit vocalist Doug Brown recounts on this song an actual conversation he had with a young boy, who'd been thrown out of a car by his father whilst driving on a state highway. He recalled to Artist Direct: "I was driving behind this truck and I saw a struggle happening. I'll never forget it. All of a sudden, the door swings open on the passenger side and the kid goes flying out of it rolling down the side of the road. I pulled over and ran out. I was holding this kid's head and he was gushing blood from all angles. I called the ambulance. The song is my conversation with him. He kept saying, 'Tell my dad I'm sorry.' Listen, I don't care what you did. Your dad shouldn't have thrown you out of a moving vehicle at 45 miles per hour. It was so weird how he was focused on how he had done something wrong. I'm talking to the kid in the first verse. He's talking to me in the second verse. Then, basically the ambulances are there in the bridge."
