In the 1996 song “One Headlight” by The Wallflowers, Bob Dylan’s son sings “We can drive it home with one headlight.” Let me tell you something, driving at night with only one headlight on is highly dangerous and irresponsible. The cops can and will pull you over for that. If you have a headlight burn out, you pull over, call AAA and wait for them to come and fix that shit. Having only one headlight decreases your ability to see on the road as well as your visibility to other cars. I am taking this literally, but only because I can’t even begin to imagine what that’s a metaphor for. It certainly is a metaphor, but most people wouldn’t be able to interpret that so all they hear is the romanticization of driving around with a headlight out. If you drive around with one headlight, forget wallflowers, you’re going to have to put actual flowers by the side of the road to memorialize a vehicular manslaughter death that you’re responsible for.
