the lyrics are all about stopping doing anything at all

and given paradise by the dashboard light about being trapped with someone for your lifetime for teenaged sex ..

not having sex with someone you love because married to someone else

the songs dovetail in meaning from Bat out of Hell to Bat out of Hell 2

Meatloaf collapsed many times on stage and died at home with his wife nearby.

songs sung one thing, life lived another
