We are all racing, racing on the highway

We are all racing, racing on the highway
To Melaka to Johor, to Wilayah to Selangor

Racing north, racing to our freedom
Away from the city, away from mammon

Racing to our leisure times, racing to a leisured life
From where we work in the city, to rest in the country

Racing to enjoy ourselves, and breathe a more expressive air
To go as we please, with all the time to spare

Racing to our villas, for the weekend in rented cars
To our landed homes, with gardens and chickens to roam

Racing to our futures, where hard earned money is spent
Racing to our retirement, from a means to an end

Racing to break free, from the constraints of stifling concrete
Step on the pedal, do the deed.
