about

I was about to be late at work but I still sat down at the piano. The song just appeared right away. It’s really simple but I liked the melody and I had to work on it so I wouldn’t forget it. I was late at work.

Road Wage is about the leaves changing in the fall. How they transform into something beautiful as they die. It’s also about how stupid little things, like getting angry for nothing on the road, are futile in this environment. – Élie Raymond

lyrics

I want the night to grow and work
Get you cold enough to change your colors
Get you warm enough to feel desire
Go ahead and wither into something fuller

I’ll be somewhere forgetting how to breathe
Wondering why I had to leave
Getting riled up for nothing more than speed
Then calling my girlfriend to whimper uselessly

Uh uh uh uh uh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Uh uh uh uh uh

I need some air to fill my lungs
I need some air to fill my lungs
Road raging in autumn
Oh no!

I need some air to fill my lungs
I need some air to fill my lungs
Road raging in autumn
Oh no!

Lay me down on this cold bed
Let me ride your strong freeways
As you dream of what you’ll never gain
Saviour of the free world, I noticed you need a change

Uh uh uh uh uh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Uh uh uh uh uh

I need some air to fill my lungs
I need some air to fill my lungs
Road raging in autumn
Oh no!

I need some air to fill my lungs
I need some air to fill my lungs
Road raging in autumn
Oh no!

Oh oh oh oh oh!
Oh oh oh oh oh!
Oh oh oh oh oh!

I need some air to fill my lungs
I need some air to fill my lungs
Road raging in autumn
Oh no!

I need some air to fill my lungs
I need some air to fill my lungs
Road raging in autumn
Oh no!
