"Joyride" as written by and Per Hakan Gessle....
Drivin' fast to live
Not to know
I got my 44
I'm tearin' up the asphalt
Drivin'
My engine just can't take much more
Tryin' to be the one(I have no idea on this one)
I got to beat you down
I gotta lead the pack
When you know I got my gun(drop my guard?)
You know I'm havin' fun
I'm gonna make it back

Gonna hunt you down with my 44
I got my pedal to the floor
Dontcha mess around with my 44

You see me comin' down the line
With my CG's open wide
???
Let my bullets fly
Take a little drink now give it to me
My 44
Get in my seat
Then I hit the line
I see you in my sight
You know I'm gonna take another life

Gonna hunt you down with my 44
I got my pedal to the floor
Don't mess around with my 44

Gonna hunt you down with my 44
I got my pedal to the floor
Don't mess around with my 44
Gonna hunt you down
Said hunt you down
Gonna hunt you down with my 44
Got my pedal to the floor
Dontcha fuckin' mess around

No
No
No, No
No, No
Don't mess around

    General CommentI love this song mainly because it's accelerated punk to make it sound like hard rock. I could never make out much of what he is saying, and these lyrics dont help me much.

    General Commenthe's just talking about road rage in a dark way. pullin out a gun and takin people out while he's drivin down the road.... so it's not really ironic at all.

    General CommentThe lyrics to this song have a sort of sick irony after the death of Lynn Strait. For those of you who don't know - he was killed by a drunk driver

    It's almost as if he were singing about what was going to happen. Creepy....

    General CommentHe was not killed by a drunk driver. He was struck by a train when his car stalled on the tracks, his dog died with him as well.
