Here comes the rush
That splits my heart in two
One daunted, one lush
To support and subdue
I’m on the edge
Going too fast to breathe
Too fast but to hold on
Too fast but to seethe

|:
Accelerate
Digest the rush
Feel free for once
This is life
Accelerate
Near the edge
Unsafe for once
This is life
Accelerate
Headlights off
Pity the ones
Without life
Accelerate
Eyes wide shut
Alive for once
This is life
:|

Feel the pulse
Blood rushes through your veins
For once alive
As woken from the dead
We have found the pace
Together invincible
We are here to stay
Awaken in a new world

Repeat |:| 2x

    General CommentFor me, this song is representative of the times you are with someone you are completely in love with. My best friend and i recently became involved romanticly, and this song captures the feeling that i get when i'm around them perfectly. The rush, running on impulse, life.

    My OpinionI believe this song is about racing. Be it on the street, on the track, at the salt flats, or even a canyon road. The rush that is being described is that of the instant adrenaline flow through the body. I speak from experience as a "canyon runner" that understands what kind of danger that I am really in. The line, "Accelerate, near the edge, unsafe for once" perfectly describes performing a high speed run down a canyon road. The words, "this is life" could mean that life, like racing, is fast paced and unpredictable. No one knows what the outcome will be. Either you will survive to race another day, or you will crash and burn and that's the end of it. And, near the end of the song, if you listen carefully, you hear the sound of an engine revving up, taking off and driving away.
