Licensed to kill
On my 650 Bonneville
"Hellfire" we yell
Fueled and indestructible

Get it down
To take the crown
Neon daze
Renegades

No fear just hate
Drives us to the ultimate
Cut loose extremes
On our maniac machines

Take me down
Or hit the ground
Neon nights
At the speed of light

So you motherfuckers want to race
You've all got loser tattooed on your face

Machine Man's running - you wanna try
Machine Man's coming - you're gonna die

Ignite the engines
You can hear it scream
You're gonna eat your words
That challenged this machine

The beast is revved up
The flag is down
The tires screech
And lay a smoke screen all around

Through the limits
As they rocket past
It's a blood bath
There's no second place

Machine Man's running - you wanna try
Machine Man's coming - you're gonna die

Machine Man - Machine Man's coming
Machine Man - Machine Man's coming

Ice nerves of steel
As I notch another kill
You lose - I win
I get to ride again

Get it down
Hit the ground
Neon nights
Speed of light

Feel no mercy as I cross the line
Watch the suckers self-destruct behind

Machine Man's running
You wanna try
Machine Man's coming
You're gonna die

Machine Man's running - you wanna try
Machine Man's coming - you're gonna die

Machine Man - Machine Man's coming
Machine Man - Machine Man's coming

    In my opinion the only worthy song on the Demolition album. Has a great start to it. Basically a cocky song about how the narrarator will emerge victorious in a race. This might very well be the onyl JP song with a swear, which is kinda interesting. "You've all got loser tattooed on your face" is a rather silly followup lyric though.

    The computer game, Carmageddon, comes to mind when I read these lyrics, some guy challenging other drivers to a deadly car race.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.
