The Lyrics

Who needs metaphors or allegories? If there's a song called "Dark Road", I expect it to be about driving in pitch blackness, dagnabbit!
It's a dark road
Means a long way 'tween me and my house
Can't see, no way
There could be anything out there, oh no
Where is my garage door?
Don't think my lights are workin' well
Those lamppost lights aren't workin' well

I hate drivin'
Down here, it's drivin' me up walls
But I'm findin'
That ev'ry other street's blocked off
Of course the one open road
Is darker than Zack Snyder's shelf
Ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh-hoo-ooh

Could be huge traffic, it could be an empty lane
No way to tell, I feel that's wrong
And if some dumb kid runs amok in their dumb way
I will never realise that they're hit 'til the thump
Ooh-ooh-hoo-hoo-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo
Hoo-ooh-hoo-hoo-ooh

GPS is searchin' for a much more well-lit street
'Til that time, I'm left here cruisin' well below the listed speed
Though if any cops should come my way, their lights would be a beam
He-ey-ee-yeah-ee-yeah
Ooh-ooh-hoo-hoo-ooh, hoo-ooh-ooh-hoo
Hoo-ooh-hoo-hoo-ooh

I just hit the tenth damn pothole
Feel the madness takin' hold
Call it a waste of all my oil
I won't speed up by any bit (I'm gonna keep inchin')
Cause my lights have died away (hoo-ooh-ooh)
Front, back, side and heads-up display (hoo-ooh-ooh)
Are black as night, I know, dur-hey (not that dumb now)
Nought but the stars, their light is shit
Hey-ee-hey-ee-hey-ee-hey, hey
Hey-ee-hey-ee-he-e-ey
Hey-ee-hey-ee-hey-ee, yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah, yeah-eah

It's a dark road
Thus a dark way 'tween me and my house
There's so much shade
I don't know what could be out there, oh no
I bet I passed my door
Ten times on both the right and left, hoo-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh
Least my Raybans look sweet as heck

Well, at least it's not raining as well.
