Everybody's got to hurry, hurry, hurry.

Yes, in a rush to get where, exactly?

 

It's a light speed panic to get nowhere fast.

like we run far enough, we can escape our past.

 

We seem to live at perpetual high speed,

and I still don't exactly understand the need.

 

Used to be it was day and night.

Now it's constant motion under neon lights.

 

Can't waste a second, it's go, go, go.

Just where the fire is, I do not know.
