Flying Towards the Light

from by Hullabaloo



A song about bugs being squished on the windshield? That’s gross! Yes, but it happens and we thought our little winged friends deserved a tribute.


Some cheerios, a juice box, a tank of gasoline
We said goodbye to Tucson set out for Abilene
You and your bug buddies came flying out of left field
And ended up splattered all over our windshield

I lift my glass to you my friend
When we crossed paths, you met your sad end
I’m safe and warm in this motel tonight
You’re up in bug heaven, flying towards the light

There were orange ones, there were green ones, there were red ones with big wings
Fuzzy black and yellow ones with parts that used to sting
Now you’re all mixed together, one for all and all for one
Like one big buggy Pollack painting drying in the sun

Another empty juice box, another tank of gasoline
We bow our heads in silence then we wash our windshield clean
But I always will remember the way it was bestowed
With a thousand guardian angels flying too close to the road
