Lyrics

Slow down in a big city street
Revel in a ravishing crash
Everyone is now watchin' spellbound
A pause in our daily rush

Keep back! A traffic cop yells in vain
Fascination all around
The staring crowd seems to be paralysed
They're gassed right out of their minds, oh-oh

Mmh, there's no chance to expect a relief
'Cause we need automobiles
And in the end we are cancer meals
Never escape the deal, ow

Turn down! Yells our mind, but in vain
Fascination all around
All mankind seems to be paralysed
We're gassed right out of our minds, ow

(Burnt gas)
Stiffens your lungs and your knees, ow
(Burnt gas)
Let you forget you've gotta breathe
(Burnt gas)
Fills up your head with a peal, c'mon
(Burnt gas)
Don't get excited, you're saving a meal

Ow
(Burnt gas)
Stiffens your lungs and your knees
(Burnt gas)
Let you forget you've gotta breathe
(Burnt gas)
Fills up your head with a peal, c'mon
(Burnt gas)
Don't get excited, you're saving a meal

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh...
(Burnt gas)
Oh-oh...
(Burnt gas)
Oh-oh..., yeah
(Burnt gas)
Oh-oh..., yeah
(Burnt gas)

(Burnt gas)
Stiffens your lungs and your knees, ow
(Burnt gas)
Let you forget you've gotta breathe, ow
(Burnt gas)
Fills up your head with a peal, ow
(Burnt gas)
Don't get excited, you're saving a meal
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, ow

(Burnt gas)
(Burnt gas)
(Burnt gas)
(Burnt gas)

(Burnt gas)
(Burnt gas)
