lyrics

(hook)
When they speed up, I slow down
Turn the beat up, till the speakers get so loud
let go, don't go too fast tonight
before your life just passes by
we've gotta gotta take the time
to slow it down, slow it down

(bridge)
hey hey hey hey hey hey that's life
no way to escape it alive
we all in a hurry going nowhere
gotta slow it down, down, down
hey hey hey hey hey they that's life
no way to escape it alive
we all in a hurry going nowhere
gotta slow it down, down, down

switching gears, fix the mirror
caught an image of the city that was crystal clear
tried to paint the picture as it drifted near
saw it flicker for an instant then it disappeared
gotta slow down to listen, hear
the sound my vision mixed up and interfered
every street's got a secret hid for years
till the wind lifts the whispers and it hits my ears
and the sound of the broken city
speaks riddles composed of both hope and envy
the echoes bounce back and forth and then meet
like minor symphonies of secret hearts
that are all played a beat apart
and they're picking up speed trying to lead the charge
racing through the dark trying to conquer time
like we're all shooting stars in a concrete sky

(hook)
When they speed up, I slow down
Turn the beat up, till the speakers get so loud
let go, don't go too fast tonight
before your life just passes by
we've gotta gotta take the time
to slow it down, slow it down

(bridge)
hey hey hey hey hey hey that's life
no way to escape it alive
we all in a hurry going nowhere
gotta slow it down, down, down
hey hey hey hey hey they that's life
no way to escape it alive
we all in a hurry going nowhere
gotta slow it down, down, down

we walk by each other so close that we start
mimicking motions and hearts without even noticing
like the road is just ours and we're honing in
on the moment alone like we're oceans apart
islands of steel drifting in unison
wishing for human contact but get so immune to it
as soon as we miss it, we resist it
cause the distance makes us different till we can't attune to it
and the cars ride bumper to bumper
kept apart by a margin of nothing at all
so I dart eyes up at a dark sky
because the stars shine upward
a far cry from the hard times suffered
by those who start line stuck them behind
roll up the window as a I come to a light
retreat to the comfort inside...and slow down

(hook)
When they speed up, I slow down
Turn the beat up, till the speakers get so loud
let go, don't go too fast tonight
before your life just passes by
we've gotta gotta take the time
to slow it down, slow it down


hey hey hey hey hey hey that's life
