Song Description

An emotionally and morally bankrupt victim of crass materialism goes for a joyride in his 3,700-pound death machine.

Story Behind the Song

I always had a guilty car fetish battling with a distaste for the excesses and soullessness of American materialism. This song is a metaphorical attempt to deal with that cognitive dissonance.

Lyrics

The dice are on the mirror
The key's in the ignition
There's a two-year guarantee on the original transmission
A belt across my shoulder
holds me tight to the frame
but nothin's gonna help me
when the Devil calls my name
See, I got no magic mojo
I lost it in a really good deal
when I sacrificed my soul
in a trade-up for this automobile

Automobile
Plastic and steel
My automobile
Hear those tires squeal
Automobile
Such a big deal
Hands on the wheel of my automobile
Hands on the wheel of my automobile
Hands on the wheel of my automobile
I feel like such a big deal
in my automobile

My brain is locked and loaded
My senses are ignoring
the beauty all around me
now it seems so very boring
I used to love a woman,
that was so long ago
Her memory just a rap song
on my car stereo
See, I haven't got emotions
I lost them in a really good deal
when I sacrificed my soul
in a trade-up for this automobile

Automobile
Plastic and steel
My automobile
Hear those tires squeal
Automobile
Such a big deal
Hands on the wheel of my automobile
Hands on the wheel of my automobile
Hands on the wheel of my automobile
I feel like such a big deal
in my automobile

Cruisin' in the passing lane
so far above the limit
My future's like a speeding car
without a driver in it
as innocent pedestrians
with daydreams in their heads
stabd waiting for the light to change
so I can knock them dead
You see, I haven't got a conscience
I lost it in a really good deal
when I sacrificed my soul
in a trade-up for this automobile

Automobile
Plastic and steel
My automobile
Hear those tires squeal
Automobile
Such a big deal
Hands on the wheel of my automobile
Hands on the wheel of my automobile
Hands on the wheel of my automobile
Looking for something to kill
in my automobile
