WHAT A TRAFFIC JAM!

Here I am, driving within the traffic jam of Jakarta
Calmly, no use to fuss
Three hours has passed
I haven't gone anywhere
Honk! Honk! Beep! Beep!
My tape has played Nidji's songs three times
Bajaj, angkot, ojek, metro mini, pedestrians, hawkers
Oh, how I dream of flying cars and magic carpets
I try to read but I get dizzy
Feeling the pain after the break up with Jodi
I try to relax and fly with my imagination
I think of places I've dreamed to see,
And remember people who have made me happy
Well, maybe it's not that bad
I think, life is good, yes, very good
Well, Jodi is not the only guy on earth
Bram is also very nice, not so bad-looking
And Arsal... quite attractive and mysterious
Hmmm...
Honk! Honk! Beep! Beep!
Damn!
The moment is gone
I'm stuck in a vast sea of vehicles

Alone

And lonely
