I AM AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN

Words & music by Scott Campbell

I am an accident waiting to happen,
I'm a disaster about to occur.

All of the wheels are set into motion,
all of the pieces are in place.

I am an accident waiting to happen,
I'm a catastrophe in my own right.

All of the odds are stacked up against me,
one more mistake and it's goodnight.

I am an accident waiting to happen.
I'm prone to falling head over heels.

I'm far too frail for such risky business.
I should be home in bed, alone.

I should be under medication, I should be under therapy.
I require supervision. I'm not responsible for me.

Accidents are often fatal;
some can kill with merely a word.

I don't want to become a statistic,
dead and pathetically absurd.

I am an accident waiting to happen,
I still have wounds from accidents past.

I am an accident waiting to happen;
my next will surely be my last.
