"Faster" as written by Paul Anthony Dempsey, Stephanie Ashworth and Clint Wesley Hyndman....
Feel it coming on
As the sun begins its shift
Over the city and all the sad and sleeping factories
I hear every engine
Hear them put together
Just to take apart my quiet, quietness

The old men talk
In every direction
Some one calls in quiet desperation
Just stand in there
When open the door
Say we can’t stay here anymore

It’s another phone call
Another change of address
Another life raft we will have to build for ourselves
There’ll be another nine
There’ll be another nine lives
And all the time in the world to trivialise

Memories lapse
And empires collapse
And we forget together on that

Some new construction came all at once
And slow and certain
Standing on the side I can see no difference
Same colours come and snap together
Looking just a life sized
And life is like one long season
Two worlds on top of each other one doesn’t notice the other
And their faces say
Business as usual
Faster and faster and faster and faster and…

And if we leave
Or if we never leave
They’ll just cover us with new buildings
And if we leave
Or if we never leave
They’ll just cover us with new buildings

Some new construction came all at once
And slow and certain
Standing on the side I can see no difference
Same colours come and snap together
Looking just a life sized
And life is like one long season
Two worlds on top of each other one doesn’t notice the other
And their faces say
Business as usual
Faster and faster and faster and faster and faster
(etc)
