"Lightning strikes, then the dice roll,
Accidents with girls, no control."

lyrics

ACCIDENTS WITH GIRLS

Lightning strikes, then the dice roll,
Accidents with girls, no control
Little pieces of glass, in our hair and down our backs,
Sparkling diamonds of the past.

Tearing down the storm-tossed coast with Victor's cousin Wendy,
Late for her Vinyasa, a pretty passenger, and I just wanna do good
She's reading my rights to me, when nothing I can do, suddenly,
From the deep a dolphin leaps and lands, smack on the hood.
Next thing I know, I see Wendy hanging upside down and smiling,
“I'm alive,” she says, “and I've never ever been quite in this position before.”
Sherriff on the radio says, “This time the fish and machine are dead.
Looks like the humans, they survived.”

ACCIDENTS WITH GIRLS, RISKY ENDEAVOURS
FLASHLIGHTS AND EYES, INTO THE EVER.

Lightning strikes, then the dice roll,
Accidents with girls, no control.


Fish checks into a room at the back, leaves a trail of scales like broken glass,
Takes off his helmet, and slips off his pack
Knocks a picture off the wall, just can't relax, turns on the CBC,
takes out a torch, two knives and a piece of old Afghanistan.
Happy animal on a bed, perhaps a thought enters his head,
He rolls around, knocks the receiver off the telephone,
What's the one thing worse, he says,
Than accidents with girls? I'll tell ya, it's accidents alone.

ACCIDENTS WITH GIRLS, RISKY ENDEAVOURS
FLASHLIGHTS AND EYES, INTO THE EVER.

Lightning strikes, then the dice roll,
Accidents with girls, no control.
Little pieces of glass, in our hair and in the grass
Sparkling diamonds of the past.
