Speed of Sound Song Lyrics:

How long before I get in?

Before it starts, before I begin

How long before you decide?

Before I know what it feels like

 

Where to? Where do I go?

If you've never tried then you'll never know

How long do I have to climb

Up on the side of this mountain of mine?

 

Look up, I look up at the night

Planets are moving at the speed of light

Climb up, up in the trees

Every chance that you get is a chance you seize

 

How long am I gonna stand

With my head stuck under the sand?

I'll stop before I can stop

Or before I see things the right way up

 

All that noise and all that sound

All those places I got found

 

And birds go flying at the speed of sound

To show you how it all began

Birds came flying from the underground

If you could see it then you'd understand

 

Ideas that you'll never find

Or the inventors could never design

The buildings that you put up

Or Japan and China, all lit up

 

The sign that I couldn't read

Or a light that I couldn't see

Some things you have to believe

But others are puzzles, puzzling me

 

All those noises and all that sound

All those places I got found

 

And birds go flying at the speed of sound

To show you how it all began

Birds came flying from the underground

If you could see it then you'd understand

Oh, when you see it then you'll understand.
