Things crawl in the darkness
That imagination spins
Needles at your nerve ends
Crawl like spiders on your skin


Pounding in your temples
And a surge of adrenaline
Every muscle tense to fence the enemy within


I'm not giving in to security under pressure
I'm not missing out on the promise of adventure
I'm not giving up on implausible dreams
Experience to extremes
Experience to extremes...


Suspicious-looking stranger
Flashes you a dangerous grin
Shadows across your window...
Was it only trees in the wind?


Every breath a static charge,
A tongue that tastes like tin
Steely-eyed outside to hide the enemy within


To you, is it movement or is it action?
Is it contact or just reaction?
And you...revolution or just resistance?
Is it living, or just existence?
Yeah, you! it takes a little more persistence
To get up and go the distance


Chorus
