--- "Shortcut to Somewhere" Taken from the movie "Quicksilver" ---
He was a fallen angel from the Tower of Babble
Strung out on a high wire
Another skyline drifter, an immaculate stranger
A legend for the wild west end
So when you're running in a slipstream of the
Ratrace veterans
Only one thing left to do
(Slide Away)
Take a breath, slide away Quicksilver
The clean cut easy way through
Well it's no Easy Rider ain't no midnight cowboy
Took his place at the starting line
Cos he left you behind with his reputation
Lone ranger, no friendships are mine
So when you've worked out the problems
And you've worked out the angles(the angles)
And you've worked out what you wanted to do
(Slide Away)
Take a Breath
Slide Away Quicksilver
The only style that you ever knew
That you ever knew
Everybody's wanting a Shortcut to Somewhere
Everyone's needing someone to look up to
Everyone's looking for somebody's hero
Are they nowhere to be found?
Are they nowhere to be found?!
With the high heels clicking down the avenue semafore
Tapping out a series distress
To yesterday's zeros those reluctant young heroes
Need a light to lead them out of this mess
So when you've worked out the problems
And you've worked out the angles(the angles)
And you've worked out what you wanted to do
(slide Away)
Take a Breath
Slide Away Quicksilvert
The only style that you ever knew
That you ever knew
He was a fallen angel from the tower of Babble
Strung up on the high wire
Another skyline drifter, an immaculate stranger
A legend for the wild west end.
So when you're running in a slipstream
With the ratrace veterans
Only one thing left to do
(Slide Away)
Take a breath slide away Quicksilver
The clean cut fast easy way through
Well it's no Easy Rider ain't no midnight cowboy
Took his place at the starting line
Because he left you behind with his reputation
Everybody's wanting a Shortcut to Somewhere
Everyone's needing someone to look up to
Everyone's looking for somebody's hero
Are they nowhere to be found?!
