Joy Ride

"Joy Ride" #JSLAY

You stare at the button marked "Insane Mode"
You just have to press to go down that same road
0 to 60
In 3.1 seconds tearing up the pavement
There won't a plaque -- no engravement
But this means freedom from your enslavement

'Cause when this world is done with you
They won't talk about your dreams -- what did you DO?

You can tell your spouse and your kids that it was your choice
You had to be yourself cause you could no longer hide
You had to feel for yourself the incredible G-Force
You took a Tesla, insane mode, one-push fantastic joy ride

You imagine you're outracing a tornado
You just pressed that button so you could really go
You feel so much power in the palm of your hand
0 to 60 in 3.1 seconds -- oh, Lord, that's so grand
How long to make it home?

'Cause when this world is done with you
They won't talk about your dreams -- what did you DO?

There's a song in your heart -- an emotional riot
The joy rising up in you like high tide
Like a high from crystal meth when you're catching your breath
You took a Tesla, insane mode, one-push fantastic joy ride

Someday, maybe tomorrow or years from now
You'll light up with remembrance when you tell how
You'll time travel from where you will be to where you were then
Stand up taller and tell folks you can't wait to do it again

'Cause when this world is done with you
They won't talk about your dreams -- what did you DO?

Now no one has to wonder what you're thinking
From now until the day that you've died
You know you have no limits -- you do what you can
You took a Tesla, insane mode, one-push fantastic joy ride
