Police lights on the George Washington Bridge,
I think some motherfucker went to jump,
I guess they didn't know I had to see a show,
I guess they never got over that hump.

And I am late, I am late,
I left my phone back home in the fridge.
Believe me, Wanda Ray, I want to see you play,
But I am stuck in traffic on the bridge.

And who said "there's no Love, but only Passion"
Was swallowed by The War Against All Men.
Leviathan awakes and so the ground shakes,
But he will too be drowned in the end.

The beast uncoils in the distance
And fear starts collapsing into clumps.
It's going to be alright, I'm not afraid of heights,
I'm just afraid that I am going to jump.

And I am late, I'm always late,
The phone is ringing somewhere in the fridge.
Forgive me, Wanda Ray, don't wait up s'il vous plaît,
'Cause I am stuck in traffic on the bridge.
