I'm sure you've changed it right now, but there is a schrader valve on the fuel rail. You can relieve pressure there. I just used a screw driver with a rag over it. At least you can somewhat control where the fuel goes this way.

The official way is to trip the safety switch in the passenger foot well and crank the engine over.
