lyrics

The hours
A steady flow
An ocean
Of letting go
A stillness
A quiet
A moment in the hourglass

I heard a scream that shattered glass
A million pieces - scattered patterns on the concrete
I saw a broken frame and a silhouette
Of a car crash that hasn't even happened yet

I feel alive in the fast lane
The road I ride already paved
And if I stop I'll lose control
I cut the brakes miles ago
I'll never be free
This tired town's behind
And I crave tomorrow's touch
These wheels just aren't fast enough

...and then I blinked
I was sideswiped
And for a moment it seemed
Like I was upright

And I let out a scream that cut through the night
A million dream - scattered patterns on the concrete
And I was a broken frame and my silhouette
Covered the earth like a safety net

And I was free
I was falling
Into this moment
And I was free
I was falling faster, ever faster
My body bending over backwards
And I was free, I was free
I closed my eyes

...and then I blinked
(he flew so far)
I was sideswiped
(suspending)
And for a moment it seemed
(space and time)
Like I was upright.
