The Lyrics

Part of my "Something to Believe In" self-challenge. Ah, the traffic cone. That tried-and-true method of traffic control. You'd think it'd always work. Sadly, some people like shattering your world view...
I'm in construction, buildin' takes time
Traffic's obstructed 'til it's safe, fine
Yeah-eah, I thought folks might not be so stupid, but
I wasn't right, they try to plough their cars straight through it

Thought the cones were good to stop bad traffic
But their wheels'll squeal, pity mechanics
Who will waste their time removin' 'em, such pain
Morons blow right past, they're so impatient
Ignorant of all the laws they're breakin'
Just blow right over all that I put
I really thought that the cones were good

Mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm

"What a numbnut" I say and then I sigh, hah
I set 'em all back up, nice orange faux-line
People can't get it into their heads, damn it
That to drive through cement won't help their traction

Thought the cones were good to stop bad traffic
Wedged inside their wheels will cause huge damage
Why can't they put on their blinkers and switch lanes?
All these witches' hats are indicatin'
That you should stop actin' like you're racin'
Don't blow right over all that I put
I really thought that the cones were good

Thought the cones were good

Cones are good, prevent, prevent bad traffic (they're supposed to stop bad traffic)
Don't call me over, overdramatic (oh, over, oh, overdramatic)
Cones are good, prevent, prevent bad traffic (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Twenty-three times that, times that you've smashed it (yeah-eah-eah-eah-eah-eah-eah-eah)

Thought the cones were good to stop bad traffic
Nothin' I can feel except pure panic
It's insane (it's insane, so insane)
That they think they're just "in the way" (whoo-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Don't you know what that's for? Don't be sayin' (whoo-ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh-ooh)
To you, it's just for video playin'
Still blow right over all that I put
I really thought that the cones were good

Yeah-eah-ayy, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Don't you wanna come with me?
Don't you wanna feel my bones on your bones?
It's only natural
