It's a shoreline,
And it's high speed,
It's a cruel world,
And it's time

And you're walking away,
Oh, where to go to?
And you're walking alone,
Oh, how to get through?
If you want to get it all,
You can own what you choose,
But you want to live a lie,
And love what you lose

It's a shoreline,
And it's high speed,
It's a cruel world,
And it's time

While you're walking away,
I will try to get through,
But you've gotta know the lies,
From the lies they told you,
If you try to do it all,
It all will leave you,
If you try to steal the beat,
The beat will steal you

It's coming,
It's coming in hard,
(Repeat 6x's)
It's coming,
It's coming in-

It's a shoreline,
And it's high speed,
It's a cruel world,
And it's time

It's coming,
It's coming in hard
(Repeat 7x's)
