Reach down and shift it into high gear

Nicki held her breath as the cell began to fill
Xenon gas soon displaced the oxygen
It supposedly made the experiment safe
Everything in her soul screamed that something was wrong

Looking for an opening to make her move
Leaping at her chance she dove to the bottom, hoping her car would stick
Even with the other car, she slowly drifted up the track
Determined to never be left behind again

I am filled with fear.
I run but I…
