The Lyrics

Driving in the forest, on your vacation
But it is the dark of night
You open your window, and put on your brights
And check to the left and the right
But somehow you didn't see what was coming
Something doesn't feel quite right

You want help, and to get out of here
And out of the dark you just realized
You have hit a really tall tree

You have gotta get out, pry open the door
Pushing from above and below
The tree's messed up your car, now it's falling down
Round and down and sideways it goes
You had to pick a really windy night to drive here
Now you simply sigh and moan

Help me someone, is what you yell tonight
But no one's around, and now you are
Dreaming of the time you'll be free
It seems like years from now
Before the time that you first heard
The bump of a really tall tree

Get out, get out, get out
You'd better get out now before it falls on you

Now in sorrow, you turn off the headlights
Knowing you gotta run for your life
This day is endless, as is this night of gloom
You're waiting for the morning light
Hoping that you'll make it, and get out in time
This is not the time of your life

And you bust out, you get out of there
You finally opened the door
Now you are once again free
Leave the car, take a cab
Let insurance pay for the time you heard
Welcome to a really tall tree

Get out, get out, get out
You got out just in time, the tree has fallen
Yeah you got out before the tree would crush you

Get out, get out, get out
Next time you might not get away
In the car like today
The tree could end your days, so don't go
Don't go to the forest, no not anymore
Just learn your lesson now, don't be a moron, no
