lyrics

Under a strange moon, the night was clear
I was hair in the air and hands on the wheel
Top down and driving full speed
Enjoying the pale sight and the cool ocean breeze

At the turn of the road stood the hitchhiker
As I was alone, I thought "Hell, let's get this poor soul a helper"
He said thank you and placed his butt on the passenger seat
You know the one the French call the deadman's seat...

Are you alive or are you dead ?
The question keeps coming to my head
If you're alive you look so sad
So that I might prefer you dead

The man told me a strange story his eyes staring
Straight and deep into me
He said he was born 200 years ago
Far across the sea at the border of Congo and Mexico
There's no such place I said
But he ignored me and he just kept talking instead

Are you alive or are you dead ?
The question keeps coming to my head
If you're alive you look so sad
So that I might prefer you dead

As his story came to an end
He said I'm here to deliver a message
There is no road far enouh to escape your sins
There is no bottle deep enough to drown them in
There is no night dark enough to hide you in
There is no car fast enough to let you flee

Were you alive or were you dead ?
The question keeps coming into my head
If you were alive you looked so sad
So in the end, you're way better dead
