lyrics

It’s a beautiful evening here as we get ready to start the race. The drivers are at the line and it looks like we’re almost set. Racers, start your engines. Go!

I can't slow down this time
I gotta rev it up and go
I gotta keep it in the lines
Tonight there's blood on the road
I keep the pedal down
They’re gonna know how this felt
No one gets in to heaven without racing through hell
Eye for eye, lap for lap
There's no turning back

(You’ve got to slow down)
Feels like my blood is running hot
(The needle’s in the red)
Give me everything you got
I can't escape the blood and steel
A death behind the wheel!

I can’t believe what I’m seeing! In a shocking turn of events the mystery car seems to be picking off each racer one by one. I wouldn’t want to be out on that track tonight. This driver is out for blood.

I’m burnin’ up the road
I got ‘em dead in my sight
And when the rubber meets the bone
There’ll be vengeance tonight
Hear the crowd roar
Calling for blood
Begging for more

(Faster)
I can hear my heart beatin
(Faster)
Like a piston in my chest
(Faster)
I’m a phantom racer, justice in a steel machine of death
(Faster)
I’ll be right behind you
(Faster)
Over and over again
(Faster)
I was born to race
(Faster)
I would die to win

We’re down to just two cars now! Like a man possessed he’s murdered every other racer and seems to be zeroing in on first place! The remaining car is speeding down this straight away like he’s being chased by the devil himself. In an incredible burst of speed the mystery driver has rammed the first place car from behind and seems to be pushing him forward! The lead racer is clearly slamming on the brakes, but the two of them show no signs of slowing down at all! There’s no way they can make this next turn in time, I can’t bare to watch!

Out of the flames comes the mystery driver. I don’t know how he survived that horrible crash, or where he’s going to next, but I can’t help thinking there’s something strangely familiar about that car…

(Faster)
I can hear my heart beatin’
(Faster)
Like a piston in my chest
(Faster)
I’m a phantom racer, justice in a steel machine of death
(Faster)
I’ll be right behind you
(Faster)
Over and over again
(Faster)
I was born to race
(Faster)
I would die to win
(Faster)
Yes I’m a phantom racer, inside a steel machine of death
(Faster, born to race, phantom baby)
And I would die to win
