Driving through the streets
I never hear a beep
until I hit the ... red lights.
Making me waste my gas,
kick every one's ass,
when I stop at ... red lights.

You know I really hate it,
when the guy in front, decides, he's gonna call his girl-friend.
You know how much it sucks,
cause the light turns green, and I'm, still sit-ting at the same light.

Then this schmuck decides
he has every right
to block all movement through the ... red lights.
Pulls out cross the lanes,
I wonder is he sane,
now I can't move to the red lights.

Gotta keep my-self busy.

Finally moving now,
fast as law allows,
til I hit the next ... red light.
Passing through some greens,
funny it almost seems
like I might not stop,

So of course I hit another light

You know I really hate it,
when this girl decides, that she, has gotta do her make-up.
You know it really sucks,
cause the light has changed, and honey, it didn't do any good.

Hours later I,
arrive at the site,
late and pissed at the ... red lights
Been driving for a while,
My leg's numb for a mile,
Damn I hate those red lights.
