"Fast In My Car" as written by Hayley Williams, Taylor York and Justin Johnsen....
Been through the ringer a couple times
I came out callous and cruel
And my two friends know this very well
Because they went through it too

The three of us were initiates
We had to learn how to deal
And when we spotted a second chance
We had to learn how to steal

Hollowed out and
Filled up with hate
All we want is
You to give us a break

We’re driving fast in my car
We’ve got our riot gear on
But we just want to have fun
No, we’re not looking for violence
Tonight we want to have fun

No one’s the same as they used to be
Much as we try to pretend
No one’s as innocent as could be
We all fall short, we all sin

But now we are looking backward
We won’t try raising the dead
We only see what’s in front of us
We only see straight ahead

Hollowed out and
Filled up with hate
All we want is
You to give us a break

We’re driving fast in my car
We’ve got our riot gear on
But we just want to have fun
No, we’re not looking for violence
Tonight we want to have fun

Get in my car and we’ll drive around
And make believe we are free
Already proved we can tough it up
And we get along so smoothly

We’re driving fast in my car
We’ve got our riot gear on
But we just want to have fun
No, we’re not looking for violence
Tonight we want to have fun

We’re driving fast in my car
We’re driving fast in my car
No, we’re not looking for violence
We’re driving fast in my car
And we just want to have fun

    My InterpretationI think this song is about the changes with the band and having to just move on and get going. Maybe they became "Hollowed out and Filled up with hate" trying to deal with the flack, but now they're just going to drive fast and do what they need and want to do.

    The part about wearing riot gear sounds like it's about going to play music and getting crap from the fans.

    General CommentI always like playing this song loudly while driving. It just makes sense :P

    But really, this song is all about learning to let go of your past and never looking back.
