The silent stray inertia
No burden on my back
No determinance, no ballast
No chance of looking back
It doesnt matter whats ahead
Its time Ill hit it hard
No fixing my position
No sign of retard
Its the fast life
Theres nothing I can do
The fast life
Suck it in and follow through
The fast life
Just learning as I go
You might call it careless
But this fast life
Is all Ive ever known
Like a wispy feather
Defying gravity
Or a rolling cobble
In the middle of the stream
Propelled by a ghost force
That never shows his face
Increase the ante
Of this perpetual pace
Its the fast life
Theres nothing I can do
The fast life
Suck it in and follow through
The fast life
Just learning as I go
You might call it careless
But this fast life
Is all Ive ever known
Ever since the day
I came out of the womb
My head was always bouncing
Off the walls in the room
Always scratching gravel
Covering new ground
No matter how hard they tried
They couldnt pin me down
Its just the fast life
Theres nothing I can do
The fast life
Suck it in and follow through
The fast life
Just learning as I go
You might call it careless
But this fast life
Is all Ive ever known
Yeah its all Ive ever known
