Sitting here in my mean machine
I'm ready to explode
Looking out of my helmet at the faces
I been wondering all night long - If I will live or die
Yeah, it's always the same before the races

I got some hot line information
About the man who's occupation is driving the cars
Standing out there on the grid
And it's a kind of fascination
And it demands full concentration
The kind of a job
We all dreamed of as a kid

I can see on the track ahead - the heat is rising high
Gotta win for the team and it's never easy
I been feeling the butterflies - strapped into my seat
Yeah, and already the tension's getting to me

We're waiting in anticipation
For some official indication - They're ready to go
Revving up and hit the road
'Cause it's another big occasion
And there won't be no relaxation - They're ready to go
And they're ready to explode

You're gonna drive 'em round the bend
Have a go on the chicane
Gonna drive 'em round the bend
Without a warning
Ready now to explode!

Who's gonna be the big sensation?
Who'll be the champion of the nation?
In one of them cars
Standing out there on the grid

He's gonna get a big ovation
Be the champion of the nation
The kind of a thrill we all dreamed of as a kid
I don't wanna break down
And I wanna explode

Don't let me break down (x3)
I wanna explode (x4)

Ever since I was just thirteen, I had a crazy, reoccurring dream
To be faster than the speed of sound
It was the only way to get around, oh yeah
(Speeding in my dreams (x2))

Seventeen and I passed my test - Never settling for second best
I knew right away what I'd like
It was a 750 motorbike, oh yeah
(Speeding in my dreams (x2))
I was living for speed
Explode!
