  • I never saw whatever it was
    That came and hit me from behind
    Then I awoke enraged and confused
    How could I have been so blind

    Life's escaping, don't pretend
    Judgement comes, but who knows when

    So when you least expect
    That's when it takes effect
    A tragic twist to alter fate
    Instinct is to deny
    Logic does not apply
    In time we learn, but it's too late

    Blunt force trauma to the head

    Blazing through life at the speed of sound
    Don't stop to look at the signs
    Suddenly everything crashes around you
    When we forget, life reminds

    Clock is running, falling sand
    Time is slipping through your hands

    So when you least expect
    That's when it takes effect
    A tragic twist to alter fate
    Instinct is to deny
    Logic does not apply
    In time we learn, but it's too late

    Blunt force trauma to the head
    It's too late

    Blunt force trauma

    So when you least expect
    That's when it takes effect
    A tragic twist to alter fate
    Instinct is to deny
    Logic does not apply
    In time we learn, but it's too late
