You can follow the road to the mountain
Or the track leading down to the beach
You can go where your like, go left or go right
It's you in the driver's seat

But if the rain starts swamping your windscreen
And the lights don't pierce through the night
And the trucks coming at you, just going to splat you
The highway's blinding and bright

You're going out of your brain
Out of your mind
You're so deranged
You're going blind

You're driving too fast
You went straight past the curve and you never go back
And driving too fast
The road was a blur and it all turned to black
You're driving too fast
Hang on to the wheel, I think you're going to crash

You can see the freeway dividing
It's a pity you can't take them both
One leads to the valley or down some blind alley
The other runs down to the coast

Too many roads lead to nowhere
But how they twist and they turn
And a dead end in a dusty old strip mall
Where your tires are all shredded and burned


You're going out of your brain
Out of your mind
Going insane
You're going blind

Yeah

You're driving too fast
You slip through the curve and your slam through the flat
And you're driving too fast
Now you'll never go back
And you're driving too fast
Yeah and it's all turned to black
And you're driving too fast
Hang on for your life, I think you're going to crash


You're going out of your brain
Out of your mind - yeah
You're so deranged
You're going blind - yeah


You're driving too fast
You went straight past the turn and you never go back, yeah
Driving too fast
You slid through the curve and you burned up the track
You're driving too fast
You're running out of gas
Driving too fast
Hang on to the wheel, I think we're going to crash

Yeah

Driving too fast, yeah - yeah, yeah
Around and around and around (...)
Around it comes and it goes - yeah
