Speed Speed SPEED

We scurry, we speed through our lives
like motorbike wheels running over the asphalt
[of Saigon’s killing fields]
at nighttime.

speed speed speed
We rush.

as if there was something else
waiting for us
than death.

spinning spinning spinning
our thoughts are turning
[with the wheels]
pushed by the alcohol

we drank

we smile
because we’re stupid.
We accelerate.
because we’re stupid.

we think we’re the kings & queens
of the world.
We can’t even see
what passes by
because we’re flying so fast.

[blurry so blurry]

But we don’t understand.

that we have more to live
if we slow down.
