Graveyard Stickshift

lyrics copyright © 2007 by Anarchy Club

I got the Devil in my rearview...

Cruising vintage Galaxie down Highway 95
I feel alive
Was many years ago tonight I died
Chilling winds hit colder face
But I'm just here to race
Pick up the pace
Let's get this shift in gear
It's time to drive

I got the Devil in my rearview
Overtaken
I got the Devil in my rearview
I'm forsaken

Driving through the past that was
I see the world that is
And could have been
I'm driving for your sins
Until I win
Been so long that I've forgotten
Am I heaven-sent
Or just hell-bent
This road to Hell's blacktopped with good intent

I got the Devil in my rearview
Overtaken
I got the Devil in my rearview
I'm forsaken

Speak of the Devil
My rival arrives
Hands upon the steering wheel
'Cuz it's all too real
And it's time to drive

I overtake the underpass
But he's still coming fast
Like in the past
But if my timing's right
Tonight's the night
Eighteen wheels oncoming
Are his chance at sleight-of-hand
Just as he planned
Again unanswered go
The sins of Man

I got the Devil in my rearview
Overtaken
I got the Devil in my rearview
I'm forsaken
