Living and dying, laughing and crying
Once you have seen it you will never be the same
Life in the fast lane is just how it seems
Hard and it's heavy, dirty and mean

Motorbreath
It's how I live my life
I can't take it any other way
Motorbreath
The sign of living fast
It is going to take
Your breath away

Don't stop for nothing, its full speed or nothing
I am taking down you know whatever is in my way
Getting your kicks as you're shooting the line
Sending the shivers up and down my spine

Motorbreath
It's how I live my life
I can't take it any other way
Motorbreath
The sign of living fast
It is going to take
Your breath away

Those people who tell you not to take chances
They are all missing on what life is about
You only live once, so take hold of the chance
Don't end up like others, same song and dance!

Motorbreath
It's how I live my life
I can't take it any other way
Motorbreath
The sign of living fast
It is going to take
Your breath away

    General Commentto me it says to live life to the fullest, party, drink, fuck, seek, and destroy. another song about not giving a fuck and doing what you want to. take risks, do all the drugs on the table, live fast, die young,and leave a good looking corpse. Man, I fuckin' LOVE this song!!

    General CommentThe whole album reminds me of motorhead if you ask me, this song more than any. And wasn't Lars head of a Motorhead fan club for a while. They certainly show their roots.

    Cliff was so trying to be Lemmy as well.
