There's a devil on my shoulder making me dance
There's a spring in my step up to heavy hearts

Appointments and deadlines sprout up like weeds
Can't tell what I want from what I need

Find a place in my head that's less wrong than right
No more living, living at the speed of light

It's been 10,000 years since we first walked upright
Built a home, built a lamp that will tell day from night
Take from this world that was made
Before it's chewed up and spat up on the way

In a world that's forever inventing the wheel
Look for guilty and changing that's gotta stay real
Find a place in my head that's less wrong than right
No more living, no more living at the speed of light

And if you follow the whims of the man at the top
End up stealing and dealing and losing their blood
Chasing and chasing a dream you once had it's mad
See the circles you ran

Gonna run to the city of permanent joy
All deadlines fall victim and time is destroyed
By the place in my head that's less wrong than right
No more living, no more living at the speed of light

You sell the freedom at gunpoint I ain't gonna buy
You shout in my ear i just stare at the sky
From the place in my head that's less wrong than right
I ain't living, I ain't living at the speed of light
