Living life in the fast lane
Moving at the speed of life and I can't slow down
Only got a gallon in the gas tank
But I'm almost at the finish line
So I can't stop now
His life is speeding on the autobahn, passing fast and he doesn’t have much time left (only a gallon in the gas tank) until his life/rap career is over. Most likely talking about his rap career, since he’s young enough that it isn’t his life that’s threatened (…).
One could also imagine a race-like scenario. He may not have had the good judgement to top off his gas tank before the race started, but now that he’s almost finished with the race, it’s not the best time to pull into a Shell. He knows his life/car may not have much fuel left, so he might as well go balls-to-the-wall in a last-ditch effort to make it to the finish line
