Ravi graduates from a hatchback to a sedan. He loves his new car and spends his weekends getting stoned and driving around in the wee hours of the morning, playing chicken with the limitations of his free will. He never wins.

lyrics

And finally.
Headlamps like Grace Kelly.
Understated door handles. All class, no fuss.
Something in me stirs, when my skin hits the leather,
and your aluminum heart, whittles and purrs.
My little temple on wheels.
Ain’t no better place to be...No...

Chrome wheels, electric seats.
Move over Korea, I’m driving Japanese.
Chrome wheels, electric seats.
Move over Korea, I’m driving Japanese,
don't you know?

So long… I’m Han Solo.
(Straight up. Kick into light speed.)

Yeah, I’m a burning streak of white metallic,
Slicing up the black and orange nothing.

But oh... It’s still too slow.
And the night always seems to quit before
I get to where I need to go.

2 am.
Drive down marina.
Stop for the cops,
just to share the smell.
I’ve got a baggie on the dash,
but they know better than to mess with
an Arrow shirt and a 'stache.

“Move along sir, we don't mean to waste your time."

S’right son, don't you waste my time.

“Move along sir, we don't mean to waste your time."

S’right bitch. You don’t get to fuck with this.

Roll up the windows.
Roll the windows up.
Daddy said, daddy said,
Roll the windows up.
Hard work can change your fate,
but it does nothing about the smell.

So long. I’m Han Solo.
(Straight up. Kick it into light speed.)

There ain't a feeling in the world, that can catch me now.
Outrage, outrage, I’ll deal with you on Monday.
but today, I’ve got a date with a rabbit,
that needs running over, somewhere over,
that cellophane sunrise.
Die little rabbit.
Die.
