Overdrive Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, the room is a cyclone
And you are in the eye
There ain't no movement
Things that could die

But the reelin' and the spinnin'
Of the rock and roll sides
Will all be gone before midnight
And die before sunrise?

You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive
If you know what it is
And you wanna stay alive
You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive

Yes, the corner's full of monkeys
And your ear drum's full of lies
Time is out the window
And there's echoes in your sides

They've been burnin' down your walls
Ever since the peep of dawn
And now the dealer's in the fireplace
Tryin' to turn it on

You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive
If you know that it's time
And you oughta take a dive
You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive

Go to overdrive
Go to overdrive
You know what it is
And you wanna stay alive
You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive

Now the light road's gettin' restless
'Cause he knows you're overdue
But it's just another train ride
Bein' all the same to you

And the last shot's at your finger tips
Like that flicker in the grass
And the last cord hits the ashes
And you know you gotta pass

You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive
If you know that it's time
And you oughta take a dive
You better go to overdrive
Go to overdrive
