I'm driving hard, punching holes in the heat
The air is clammy, a hamper full of nightmare's sheets.
I'm goin' fast like a fading blonde
No time for nothing but goin, goin', goin' - gone.
My brakes are failing, blasting through all the lights
My radiator's been blown since I was five.
The night is clinging and the sidewalks reel
My body's rusted, I'm rotten, screaming steel.
Tire treads are smooth and hot
Sirens wailing long and loud
But what's a man to do
If he can't slow down.
I'm knockin', knockin' underneath my hood.
Don't you inspect me, you know I just ain't no good.
I'm spittin' licorice in the D.M.Z.
Both sides sit helpless - ironic equality.
Like a warrior who fights without shield
I'll go down.
You'll see me smashed to bits in this town
Long before I'm due
'Cause I can't slow down.
