It's getting cold, it's getting dark, the nights are longer every day
The air is heavy and the clouds will never burn away
And we've been waitin' here so long that we've forgotten what it's like
To turn into the fire, lookin' straight into the, straight into the light

Your heart is tryin' to rock but it can barely beat at all
Your soul is tryin' to run but all your body does is crawl
You don't need any signal, you don't need any sign
Nothin's gonna stop you once you cross over the line

I want to tear it all apart and take the clothes right off your back
We're tearin' down the highway and we're breakin' away, breakin' away
Breakin' away, we're breakin' away from the pack
We're breakin' away from the pack

And if you don't have anywhere to go
You go down on the pedal and you're ready to roll
And even if you don't have anywhere to go
You go down on the pedal and you're ready to roll
And your speed is all you'll ever need, all you'll ever need to know

[Chorus]
You and me we're goin' nowhere slowly and we gotta get away from the past
There's nothin' wrong with goin' nowhere baby
But we should be goin' nowhere fast
Everybody's goin' nowhere slowly
They're only fighting for the chance to be last
There's nothin' wrong with goin' nowhere baby
But we should be goin' nowhere fast

It's so much better goin' nowhere fast

You shouldn't always see your world so clearly
You shouldn't always know your place so well
And all we're doin' here is hangin' around
And goin' anywhere has gotta be heaven, 'cause stayin here is gonna be hell
And goin' anywhere has gotta be heaven, 'cause stayin here has gotta be hell

I'm getting lost, I'm getting found, I'm getting born again each day
We're dyin' on the vine until we finally, 'til we finally get away
The boundaries of this town are closin' in just like a noose
The future's gonna rust if we don't put it to some, put it to some use

Your heart is tryin' to rock but it can barely beat at all
Your soul is tryin' to run but all your body does is crawl
You don't need any signal, you don't need any sign
Nothin's gonna stop you once you cross over the line

[Chorus]
