I'm driving hard, punching holes in the heat
The air is clammy, a hamper full of nightmare's sheets
I'm going fast like a fading blonde
No time for nothing but going, going, going, gone

Tire treads are smooth and hot
Going 'round
Sirens wailing long and loud
But what's a man to do
If he can't slow down
Just can't seem to slow down

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

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
I just can't seem to slow down
I can't slow down
I just can't seem to slow down

I'm knocking, knocking underneath my hood. (knock, knock)
Don't you inspect me, you know I just ain't no good

Tire treads are smooth and hot
Going 'round
You'll see me smashed to bits in this town
Long before I'm due
'Cause I can't slow down
I just can't seem to slow down
I can't slow down
I just can't seem to slow down
