lyrics

I found myself outside
Walking in the dark and staring at the sky
I will never understand how my life unfolds
But fate just is; fate does not console

Then they pulled me to the side
They put their arms around me and led me inside
They told me I was not the only one in pain
But they console; they do not explain

Faster than I can spin
The world turns and changes again
Sweeter still, till the end
I still want it all again

And there beside me, in letters ten feet tall
The words of God were scrawled on the wall
But I was not oblivious: I chose to ignore
For words explain; words do not restore

Faster...

And I could wait until
I regained my balance and made the world stand still
But I would wait forever for my will to be that strong
And as I waited, the rest of my life would be gone.

Faster...
