Pedro The LionBlack Canyon

Just after midnight, Black Canyon freeway A man when he could no longer deal Stepped in front of 18 wheels My uncle Ray was a paramedic One of the first boots on the ground He saw the man beneath the truck in several pieces Obviously gone - Time to call for cleanup More flashing lights came The cops blocked off the road Ray’s pal from another engine Came over with a gallows joke Come on Ray, we can save him Come on Ray, we can save him Come on Ray Ray’s pal went closer to see the broken body Pretty quickly he came back acting queasy Sayin’ “Ray, you won’t believe what that man said to me:” “Get this truck off my back Don’t know what I expected, but that hurt really bad Where were my people at? Coiled up like a rattlesnake Waiting to attack” Next up the female fire engine driver strolled To see the body solo when Ray declined to go Against her better judgment, her training and her plan She recognized in those pieces a brokenhearted man Compartments came apart then Compartments came apart then She gathered herself and crept back to the truck Remembering all of the times she’d nearly given up She had to be twice as human, and just as tough She knew it was never enough, never enough To get this truck off my back Don’t know what I expected, but that hurt really bad Where were my people at? Coiled up like a rattlesnake Waiting to attack Tell them your stories If you carry them by yourself The gorier the details the more you walk alone in Hell
