Faster and faster I'll be in Heaven The world is the weight on my shoulders Rip my skin, don't let me in Tattoo your love with your nails The sky's turning red, now I'm older. Closer and closer Street fires burning A world unaware keeps on turning Outside, my sighs The jackhammer sings Memories slowly returning. CHORUS ----------- Under the sun there's nothing new What you don't know, won't hurt you We don't need to know what's inside We can find a world, when theirs collide. History repeating My heart keeps on beating for you. ----------- Further and further Escape pods are leaving The stars in the sky make me wonder Transfixed by the blades spinning round And the ceiling fan hum. The sky's turning black, now I'm younger. CHOURUS Sha na na na Thought that you'd know me by now Know me by now Know me by now Sha na na na Thought that you'd know me by now Know me by now Know me by now. Deeper and deeper Through time and space On your feet, on your feet soldier All roads lead to an end I will see you again. The world is the weight on my shoulders.
