Roll with the punches
Because you know that it's inevitable
Soon to be unforgettable, yet, totally unpredictable
I'm either calling it quits or you're calling me out
It's not who or what you know because you're better with nothing at all.

Sing it back to me; this is your life story
You didn't even know it you're trying not to blow it
Because you're kicking back a death wish and here I am just riding out the storm
Believe me when I say that I want to give up
I want to give up but it's bad enough to keep me hooked
Just to watch you curse my name and toss and turn

Turn around and cross the line you so casually walk between function and fashion
Are you dressed to kill or dressed to impress?
Don't act like you can do better than this.

Let me see you put your hands up on the stereo
It's spitting out a ridiculous frequency
But turn it up turn it up
Break a sweat
Cause were just burning up and hitting up the scene that was ours to hit up
Take take me out because I'm ready for your best shot
Make make me out to be a bullet from the pulpit
Or anything that would make you believe
All that we've seen would be just another scene
That was ours to hit up

Play it back for me, if you feel you've got to
Do you want to call it intuition
Cause after intermission we'll be flashing the house lights
To let you know that we're back in action
Simply for your satisfaction

Turn around and cross the line you so casually walk between function and fashion
Are you dressed to kill or dressed to impress?
Don't act like you can do better than this

Turn around and cross the line you so casually walk between function and fashion
Are you dressed to kill or dressed to impress?
Don't act like you can do better than this

Let me see you put your hands up on the stereo
It's spitting out a ridiculous frequency
But turn it up turn it up
Break a sweat
Cause were just burning up and hitting up the scene that was ours to hit up
Take take me out because I'm ready for your best shot
Make make me out to be a bullet from the pulpit
Or anything that would make you believe
All that we've seen would be just another scene
That was ours to hit up

Roll with the punches
Because you know that it's inevitable
Soon to be unforgettable, we're either calling it quits or you're calling me out
It's not who or what you know because you're better with nothing at all.

Roll with the punches
(You're better with nothing at all.)
Roll with the punches

Let me see you put your hands up on the stereo
It's spitting out a ridiculous frequency
But turn it up turn it up
Break a sweat
Cause were just burning up and hitting up the scene that was ours to hit up

Take take me out because I'm ready for your best shot
Make make me out to be a bullet from the pulpit
Or anything that would make you believe
All that we've seen would be just another scene
That was ours to hit up

    And technically light speed is impossible... We could only travel very close to light speed w/o actually reaching it... Ever. Law of physics

    Sadly, wormholes and moving backwards through time are (as of now)only theory. However, the bit about lightspeed and slowing time for the traveler is hard science, based on the law of the doppler effect. (when a train is moving towards you it makes sound at a different pitch than it will when it is moving away[at least to a stationary listener]) this shift in value~based on movement- when applied to light instead of sound means that objects in the solar system that are moving away from us appear reddish, while objects moving away appear blue... In sound the shift in value caused by the doppler effect is experienced as a change in pitch... In vision it is experienced as a change in color...

    Literately though, moving at the speed of light means that time would travel much slower for you than the universe around you...

    However, moving back in time is another quandary all together. One that would require bridging the gap between the third and fourth dimensions(aka traversing wormholes)... This is also a requirement for universal civilizations, as; without wormholes all of our space travelers would arrive at their destinations centuries ahead of their projected lifespans, therefore effectively out-living the usefulness of any information or cargo they may carry...
