Killer Cars

Music and cycling are a nice combination, provided you aren’t on the road at the time.  I’ve had lots of pleasant rides on the Fallowfield Loop or on canal towpaths whilst listening to a spot of music.  Today I thought I’d share a track by Radiohead, called Killer Cars (Spotify link here).

Killer Cars:

Too hard on the brakes again
What if these brakes just give in?
What if they don’t get out of the way?
What if there’s someone overtaking?
I’m going out for a little drive
And it could be the last time you see me alive
There could be an idiot on the road
The only kick in life is pumping that steel

Wrap me up in the back of the trunk
Packed with foam and blind drunk
They won’t ever take me alive
Cos they all drive

Don’t die on the motorway
The moon would freeze, the plants would die
I couldn’t cope if you crashed today
All the things I forgot to say
I’m going out for a little drive
And it could be the last time you see me alive
What if that car loses control?
What if there’s someone overtaking?

Wrap me up in the back of the trunk
Packed with foam and blind drunk
They won’t ever take me alive
Cos they all drive…
Killer Cars
Wrap me up in the back of a trunk
Packed with foam and blind drunk
They won’t ever take me alive
Cos they all drive…
Killer Cars
They all drive Killer Cars
They all drive Killer Cars

  1. One of the biggest myths of modern life is that a system of transport based on cars can be safe.I remember a few years ago someone shot sixteen people in a couple of towns near to Stuttgart and everyone went into national mourning. I pointed out to people here that 12 people a day are killed on the roads in Germany, and that's considered okay.Blank looks.

  2. It is worrying how little people seem to care about the amount of people who are killed by motorised traffic everyday.Not so much worrying, it's actually a bit sick. Human nature eh?!
