Up with the stand
Just a twist of the hand
and I'm...

Off in the dead of the night
traveling within death's sight
I don't know when I'll end my plight
but it could be this very night

Twisties illuminated by moonlight
and highlighted by my headlight
Darkness conceals the height
Death rides with me tonight


and I'm....

Off in the dead of the night
traveling within death's sight
Show yourself old man
I'm on an adrenalin charged flight plan

Chill grips the air, Death insinuates a dare
and the fever demands more fear
as I ride with darkness near
Death leans closer and whispers in my ear

"Come ride with me this very night"
"I'll take you into certain pre-flight"
"Your wits be the judge tonight
or you'll be OFF in the dead of the night!"

"You'll be riding with me tonight
and loving each spark that flies
while your heart beats a sure surprise
and your hands tremble with delight
as you RIDE with me tonight!"


You can't beat me, this I swear
I won't make the mistake of accepting that dare
But, I will feed a feast to my fear
and adrenalin thirst that always draws me near

 and I'm...

Off in the dead of the night
traveling within death's sight
I don't know when I'll end my plight
but it... could be... it could be...this very night!

Off in the dead of the night
leaving behind all that's holy and right
I see only a grave in my headlight
and I'm ....OFF in the dead of the night!

Author notes

There are many kinds of thirst. Some thirst for water, for drugs, for beer. Others thirst for hidden things, like power, fame, glory. Some ride and feed a feast to their need ...like a junkie fixed on speed...
