lyrics

He was a Mississauga man with a family sedanA 25 year financial plan
He had his shit together, son
Until it hit the fan

Automobiles lurch forward in staggered steps
Like the second hands of a thousand clocks with dying batteries
The 401 at 5:01 oh
God, bored out of his skull
Reruns and Sudoku, waiting for the end of an ice age
18 lanes goin' nowhere slow

He was a Mississauga man with a family sedan
A 25 year financial plan
He had his shit together, son
Until it hit the fan

In a parking lot fight over a parking spot
At a strip club in a strip mall, a pistol is drawn
With intent to scare, hie shoots straight up in the air

Little fish on the bumper of her car
As she's eyein' up the perfect spot by the front door
A black sedan puts an end to her plans
She don't turn no other cheek
You're an asshole, didn't see you there
Rainin' hellfire down
Stray bullet lands on our Mississauga man.

Glory to God in the highest
Sacrificed a Mississauga messiah
Heaven to the 427, a suicide mission
Jesus Christ would have rather been fishin'

Time be the death of us all, and death comes slow
Like rush hour on the 401 through Etobicoke
No second hands, no investment plans, no future, no hope
Glory to God, he must have been high

He was a Mississauga man with a family sedan
A 25 year financial plan
He had his shit together, son
Until it hit the fan
