Lyrics

 Gimme fuel, gimme fire
 Gimme that which I desire
 
 Turn on, I see red
 Adrenaline crash and crack my head
 Nitro junkie, paint me dead
 And I see red
 
 One hundred plus through black and white
 War horse, warhead
 Fuck 'em, man, white-knuckle tight
 Through black and white
 
     On I burn
     Fuel is pumping engines
     Burning hard, loose and clean
     And on I burn
     Churning my direction
     Quench my thirst with gasoline
 
     So gimme fuel, gimme fire
     Gimme that which I desire
 
 Turn on beyond the bone
 Swallow future, spit out home
 Burn your face upon the chrome
 
 Take the corner, join the crash
 Headlights, head on, headlines
 Another junkie lives too fast
 Lives way too fast
 
     On I burn
     Fuel is pumping engines
     Burning hard, loose and clean
     And on I burn
     Churning my direction
     Quench my thirst with gasoline
 
     So gimme fuel, gimme fire
     Gimme that which I desire
 
 White-knuckle tight
 
 Gimme fuel
 Gimme fire
 My desire
 
     On I burn
     Fuel is pumping engines
     Burning hard, loose and clean
     And on I burn
     Churning my direction
     Quench my thirst with gasoline
 
     Gimme fuel, gimme fire
     Gimme that which I desire
 
 On I burn
