The Lyrics

Came up with this while driving home from work, hitting every red light, and listening to Taylor's Red album...
driving home was like riding an old lawn tractor
through a field of weeds
patience wearing thin
mower keeps jamming
stopping so suddenly

driving home is like
getting tailgated from behind
when you’re wheels are barely turning at all
just heard another horn
oh great
car in front of me just stalled

losing it right now, why can’t we go
every time we move, light turns yellow
forget it, gonna put it in park and pull out the gazette
cause every light was red (re-e-e-e-d)
every light was red (re-e-e-e-d)

never touch the gas and realize
brake lights are always gonna be in front of you
memorizing plates is easy cause you’re staring
at them all night long
fighting to break free was like trying to change lanes
and realizing there’s no room anywhere
regretting not taking the back roads cause it would never
have taken this long

put my feet up on the dash, yeah it’s that slow
now this lane is closed, there’s a flashing arrow
trying to merge but nobody’s letting me in
cause the next light was red (re-e-e-e-d)
oh red, burning red (re-e-e-e-d)

walking would be faster cause i’m so close
turn off the engine now, gotta get goin’
cause moving anymore is impossible
when i can take the train instead

burning red!
every light was red!

oh, so much better now, i’m off of that road
whatever, i don’t care if my car is towed
inching along was making me so bloody maaaad
cause every light was red yeah yeah red (re-e-e-e-d)
they’re burning red! (re-e-e-e-d)

and that’s why i took the train instead
every light i hit was burning red
yeah yeah

cause driving was like riding
and old lawn tractor through a field of weeds

Dkos but I can certainly relate. Good music helps. And think about it - this parody may never have emerged. It's a good chance to go into the playground of the mind so be grateful. Here's five green lights.
