Song Lyrics

Push it to the floor till the engine screams
Drivin like the demon that drives your beat

You’re on a hard road nobody cares
If you hit the breaks
You gotta think fast keep it in gear
One slip is all it takes
You gotta keep your wheels on the straight and narrow
If you wanna survive

Push it to the floor till the engine screams
Drivin like the demon that drives the beat
