The Lyrics

This is all about the PC game Driv3r (Driver 3). It's told from the viewpoint of the main character, Tanner, and controlled by the player.This song deals with the game's Take-A-Ride mission in which you just roam around town and wreak as much havoc as you wish.
First he was afraid,
He was petrified
When I came striding up to
His door on the driver's side
But then I flashed the guy a smile
And I changed it to a pout --
Gave him a clout,
And then I threw the driver out
Oh, Tanner's back --
Miami Beach;
There ain't a single car in town
That is beyond my jacking reach
I'm gonna break that stupid lock
And make it start without the key
This is normally illegal
But we're playing Driv3r


Go Tanner go, open that door
And grab the driver,
They won't need this car anymore
Weren't you the one who called the cops to arrest me?
You think I'm spineless?
You think I'll give up peacefully?
Oh no, not I,
I will survive
And as long as my hot wheels hold out
I know I'll stay alive
I've got nothing good to do
(And some bullets in me too)
But I'll survive,
I will survive

It took all the skill I had
To evade the cops
But then I clipped a city bus
And rolled onto my top
And as the cops surrounded me
And as I crawled out of the car
They opened fire,
Which did nothing but blow my tire
And you see me
Pull out my gun,
It's an AK-47;
Time to have some fun...
So when I blasted out a hole
In the roadblock on the street,
Well, I stole a motorcycle
And I dared them to catch me!

(repeat chorus)
