"Speedfreak" as written by Edward Alan Clarke, Ian Kilmister and Philip John Taylor....
Got to hurry, got to hurry
I don't believe you worry
Take it back, take it back
You know you can't do that
Don't want no sleep
Just hide and seek
Yes, I'm a speedfreak
Baby, I'm a speedfreak

Way too fast, way too fast
Gonna be the first and last
Shoot ya down, shoot ya down
Flamin' wreck you hit the ground
Up for a week
I don't want no sleep
'Cause I'm a speedfreak
Baby, I'm a speedfreak

No regrets, no regrets
You know you can't afford 'em yet
Comin' down, comin' down
Over, under, sideways, round
Up for a week
Playin' hide and seek
'Cause I'm a speedfreak
Everlasting speedfreak

    General CommentI'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that this song refers to Lemmy Kilmister's massive usage of methamphetamine while touring with his band Motorhead. Although it could have a much deeper poetic meaning. If so I haven't yet figured out what if might mean.

    General CommentWell yeah it could mean an addiction to speed, but I take it being obsessed over speed (Not the drug) in playing music... and by music I mean metal... which IS the only music... :)

    General Commentmetal IS NOT "the only music" Lemmy himself prefers to be labeled as rock and roll.

    General Comment"methamphetamine"

    ...amphetamines in general. Meth is far less common in the UK than the sulphate form.
