(atmospheric instrumental plays)

> THEY CALL ME RACER STEVEN.
THIS IS MY CAR,
SKY BLUE. I HAVEN'T RACED
IN A LONG TIME.
MAYBE TOO LONG. I JUST GOT TO
CONCENTRATE, CAN'T GET DISTRACTED.
I WANT THEM TO KNOW ME AS
THE MAN WHO WENT FAST ENOUGH.
(car engine rumbles)
(music plays)
Male Sings:
Stuck in the shade
where there's no sunshine
I don't want to play
with them other kids in the sun
Since you left me babe
It's been a long way down
Yeah you left me babe
It's been a long way down
What you don't know
won't hurt you yet
Ignorance is bliss
I'm a happy idiot
waving at cars
I'm going to bang my
head through the walls
Till' I feel like
nothing at all
I'm a happy idiot,
to keep my mind off you
Stuck in a daze, and
I lost my mind
I don't want to stay
where the blaze or mind
Since you left me babe
It's been a long
way down
Yeah you left
me babe
It's been a long way down
So shut it off
So I shut it all off
So shut it off
So I shut it all off
Whoa-oh-oh...
It's been a long way down
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
It's been a long way down
What you don't know
won't hurt you yet
Ignorance is bliss
I'm a happy idiot,
waving at cars
I'm going to bang my
head through the walls
Till I fell like
nothing at all
I'm a happy idiot
to keep my
mind off you
to keep my
mind off you
to keep my
mind off you
